alternate July 4th

Part of Wyatt’s (pre) birthday celebration included a Mommy-Daddy date.  With the rainy weather and cancelled July 4th celebrations we decided to seize the holiday and spend a few hours with Wyatt.

We started out with breakfast, planning on stopping for biscuits but Wyatt started pouting and said he wanted his “birthday party”.  He really thought today was his real party.  We quickly changed our plans and decided to go for donuts with sprinkles, close enough to cake for Wyatt.

Then we decided to spend some time doing what Wyatt loves.  Checking out cars at the toy store.  He loves going down the car and truck aisle, never asking to buy a thing.

This time Wyatt got extra lucky….Wyatt-sized cars!

He was a bit disappointed not to be able to take it for a test drive, but was happy enough opening and closing the doors over and over.

After another spin around the train table, we headed back to the car where Wyatt requested to ride in Will’s car seat.  We were happy to oblige.

Next up on our Wyatt fun-day was a trip to the hardware store.  He immediately found the lawn mowers and then found the tires.  This boy loves things that go.

And the best thing about the hardware store, is the free popcorn.

Wyatt LOVED his special day, and we loved our one-on-one time with him. 

So while this was not our typical July 4th celebration, it was still a pretty good holiday.
