It took us a while to post this because we actually lost the camera! We have been doing home improvements including updating our kitchen floor and somehow the camera ended up in a bucket with nails and such. At least we finally found it.
Spencer had a great third birthday, which essentially lasted for days because his birthday was on a Wednesday. He had a small birthday party at school and then dinner and a birthday sundae at Red Robin. We let him open presents from different people each day until Saturday when he had a birthday party at home with Mom, Dad, Aunt Vickie, Grandma, and Aunt Sarah. You can see more photos of his birthday celebration on the Picasa web album.

Also, here is a super-cute video of Spencer from the webcam. We recorded it last night. Then Spencer watched it over and over and cracked himself up.

Our neighbor and his son made a really neat snowman, and then Luke (the 2 1/2 year-old) proceeded to knock it down within a couple of hours after making it! They had a great time running around in the snow together.
Spencer also had a very good Christmas and got many cars, trucks and books that he really loves.

It's about 9:45pm, July 30 -- Two years ago, give or take a couple of minutes, my sweet little boy was born. It wasn't long ago and I can remember it all, but what I wouldn't give to experience it all over again.
The time has gone by so quickly and Spencer has grown up so fast. What a sweet and fun little boy we have.
So today was Spencer's birthday, of course! Cake, presents, and a few hours climbing around some of the biggest steam locomotives ever built -- could a two year old really need anything more? We took Spencer to the Transportation Museum and did he have a blast. After the initial excitement and "chooo choooo's" settled down, Spencer was truely awed by the size of the trains -- He must have looked up at a train and thrown his arms up in the air with a giant "WHOAAAA!" a hundred times.
The trains were truely amazing. Many of them had 24 wheels (that's just the locomotive, not the tender), some of which were as tall as Ginger. Several of the giants had their engineer cabins (or whatever you call them) open, which meant Spencer got to sit in the driver's seat and try out all the knobs, valves, and other controls.
Finally, we finished off the day with presents and cake. Spencer blew out his own candle on his third try, which was neat, considering he only recently figured out how to blow a good puff of air. He had a "Cars" themed cake which he really got a kick out of. Spencer's "happy birthday" is great -- it sounds something like "deedee-da-day" :D
Overall it was a great day and a lot of fun. I look forward to many more.
Happy birthday, Spencer.
