Birthday boy

Today we celebrated Luc’s 2nd birthday. This was spent opening presents including a ‘fire na nee’ (fire engine), books, electronic match-up game and several sports balls. It was then off to meet John and Yolanda Nowak and their son Joseph at the Chicago Children’s Museum at Navy Pier on Lake Michigan. This is an excellent museum and Luc had a fantastic time.

Once Paul retrieved Luc after he ran off to explore by himself, Luc became actively involved: building a pipe system, changing tyres on a car, playing with water and boats, building a block wall, digging for dinosaurs, playing with robotics, etc. There was some reluctance and screaming when it was time to leave! After some lunch, Luc went for a ride on a miniature train (3 times). Then it was off home for a snooze. When Luc woke up, there were yet more presents to unwrap (very generous gifts from the Nowaks - even a present for Nic). We shared some birthday cake with Luc and spent a warm afternoon indoors, playing with new toys while it snowed outside.
