When my brothers and sisters and I were young my dad started the tradition of 1/2 birthdays. He felt that waiting a whole year for a birthday was just too long for a little kid. This meant that 6 months after our birthday we would get a small gift (usually about 5 bucks worth) and a dessert of our choosing after dinner. It was so awesome I decided I wanted to continue the tradition in my own family.
Madeleine had her 1/2 birthday in September. She went to Jungle Jim’s a few months earlier for her cousin’s birthday and had been asking EVERY day since to go back. So that’s what we did to celebrate her turning 2 1/2. The dessert she chose? Chocolate cupcakes with m&ms on top.
Here she is flying her spaceship.

This makes me laugh. Around, around, and around he goes! He gets his knack for driving from his dad 😉
