Alex's Birthday!

This weekend wasn't just about nerding out at Comicon.  It was also Alex's birthday.

 
Since he's recently discovered he loves croissants, it seemed like the best option for his special birthday breakfast.
 
 
This was his big gift from Dave and I.  He loves garbage trucks almost as much as he loves buses.  This model is very detailed and seemed robust in the store, so I think he'll get a lot of fun out of it.
 
 
After lunch, we went to a parking lot fair at a local mall.  The boys had a blast.
 

 
Train conductor Nathan.
 
 
They shared the elephant ride.  (Although neither figured out the lever inside the elephant would make them go up and down.)
 

Alex got to channel his inner biker.
 

 
And we finished off our day at the fair by throwing stones into a puddle large enough to qualify as a small lake.
 

 
After the fair, Alex got some alone time with Mommy and Daddy and ice cream. 
 
It wasn't a particularly fancy day.  But I think it was a good one for all of us.
 
Two down.  Two to go.
