April 10th, Colton turns 2!

I feel SO blessed.  So many people showered love on Colton on his birthday--the day was absolutely PERFECT!  I loved watching his smile throughout the day.  He doesn't get to pick things very often, so it was pretty fun to see him be the center of attention!  His big sister was also AWESOME, and thrilled and excited for him constantly, letting him do everything and keeping an awesome attitude the whole day.  I am so proud of her. 

Grandma and Grandpa T sent a super cute birthday video to Colton of them singing him the Tommerdahl happy birthday song, which I will share in this video...

Colton was ecstatic that Grandma Kirkwood came to spend the day with us!

We did all sorts of Colton things :). 

1) We started the day with muffins, Bible reading, and books.


2) After Grandma came, we headed to Zeigler in Bloomington to look at/climb all the big equipment!

3) Then to Burnsville Mall to play in their kiddie car area.

4) Colton picked Culver's "cheeseburger, applesauce, and icecream" for lunch.

5) After naps, we had a 4pm appointment with the Apple Valley Fire Department to look at their trucks (We have such a friendly, nice fire department!)

6) Then we played at the "fire truck" park, sandbox, and had dinner.

7) After dinner we opened presents.  My Grandparents and Aunt and Uncle sent birthday packages with such thoughtful gifts for our little boy!  Thank you to them!

8) We read his new Pixar car and Thomas the Train books before bath and bedtime.

Here is a short video full of clips from the day, including his birthday wake-up :)...

Aw, truly a perfect day for such a special boy. So many sweet, excited smiles. I just love his sweet voice when you got him up in the morning. And, I am so proud of Summer for being so excited for Colton. She is truly a wonderful big sister. The monkey video by Kay, Stuart and Javonte is epic! Great job on this post and video, Kel.
