A Birthday Surprise!

I also went to a special place just for kids called "Chuck E. Cheese's" to celebrate my 2nd birthday. There were lots of kids there just like me who came to play and have a good time. I heard that it is a great place to celebrate your birthday and after being there for a while, I think so too. There was a big sliding board that I liked and lots of other fun things to do and ride on. I even rode in a car with Barney! My Mommy told me that she went to a lot of birthday parties there when she was a little girl. When it was time to eat, we had something that is definitely on my list of favorites... pizza!

Here are some pics that we took at Chuck E. Cheese's. Grammy said that you can click on the logo above for more information, just in case you want to take your kids there. Tell them that The Booga Wooga said, "It's a really fun place to go!"

Breakfast + Lunch = Brunch

click logo for more information

Today, my Pop-Pop got up and decided he wanted to take us out to have something called "brunch". So, we got in the car, traveled to a part of Philadelphia called "Germantown", and went to a place called the "Trolley Car Diner. It was a warm and friendly place...lots of people were there and Grammy said it was like "the place that time forgot".

Here is a pic of the old #23 trolley car that sits right outside the diner. It was closed because it's wintertime but, in the summertime, it serves ice cream and you can sit at the tables outside to eat it.

This is a pic of the diner where we had our brunch. It sits right next to the old #23 trolley car.

Because there were so many people there, we had to give our name, sit down, and wait a little while before our table was ready. Usually, I get really upset when I have to sit still and wait for anything because I like to run around and have fun but, Mommy said that I was being a really good boy today.

Mommy decided that she was in the mood for breakfast so, she ordered something called "fish and grits" for us to eat. It was really good...here I am eating a piece of fish.

After we ate, we went outside to say goodbye to the old #23 trolley car before heading for home. In case you haven't noticed, I really like trains, trolley cars, and just about anything that runs on a track!

Grammy promised that they would take me back to the Trolley Car Diner in the summertime so we can all eat some ice cream outside. She said we might even go at night because the diner lights up and looks even better after dark. I can't wait!

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
