Our first born turned 4 years old today! My how time flies. It seems like only yesterday that we were headed home from NC with my birthday present.. a tiny puppy about the size of a large hamster. We spoiled Ollie all day today. He got lots of treats and love and cuddles. After dinner we took him to the pet store to "choose" a birthday present. He went for a new octopus and a brown bear. After that we took him to his new friend Jackson's house where, after a getting-to-know-you period, they ran each other ragged in the back yard and shared Oliver's special frosted birthday cookies from our friend Emily. Jackson's mommy, Kristen, even got Ollie a birthday present! What a lucky pup! He is still a little worn out and his currently passed out in his bed.
If you are wondering whether we will be taking our daughters to a store to choose their birthday presents when the time comes.. it's not in my plans...but it sure was fun watching Oliver snuffle through the bins and pick out his little bear :)
