on friday we went to the splash pad with my friend katie and her 3 boys. bennett wasn't so sure about it, honestly- the water was pretty cold! but it was fun to be outside and he liked just hanging out and, of course, eating snacks.

that night, we had landon's 2nd birthday party! bennett was quite a ham at the party and had everyone talking :) like at his own birthday party, bennett loved popping all the balloons. i can't believe that balloons loudly popping in his face doesn't scare him, but he loves it! and landon kept saying "ben! pop!" so i think that meant landon liked it too. also, ben enjoyed getting snacks wherever he could find them (meghan's plate, off the ground where another kid spilled his goldfish, etc.). i swear this kid would eat all day if he could.
it seems landon comes up with the ideas and ben carries them out.
could be interesting as these boys get older!
anyway... joe got home saturday night. on sunday we lounged around, had lunch out, and then went to a bbq last night at a friend's house. they were hosting this barbeque for some young shoreview families. i knew a lot of the families there, but it was fun to meet some new people too. as we drove home, joe and i talked about how it made us even more excited about where we're living. having so many nice families with kids around the same age as bennett is a major part of what made us decide to move to shoreview in the first place. hopefully we'll have many more gatherings like this in the future.
