Winter Day at the Boardwalk | Vincent is 2 1/2 years old!

The weather around here has been quite summer-like, so we decided to take a little trip up to Santa Cruz Boardwalk to take Vincent on the rides there. We normally don’t really get out on the weekends besides a small trip to a neighborhood park, so we wanted to take advantage of the fact that this may be the last weekend without a newborn!

When we got there, we went over to the “kid” section we went on last time — but it was gated off. Vincent wanted to go through the gate so bad! Must be because it is winter, so they shut down half of the boardwalk.

We walked around to the other side, and fortunately found a few rides he could enjoy.

The first was a small little helicopter that the kids can steer up and down. Vincent couldn’t reach the controls, so he just sat there and went in circles at the bottom instead of flying up. He didn’t really seem to enjoy it that much, but he did smile a bit everytime we waved to him.

The next ride was a bit more fun — a big “swing” for little kids. It was so cute to see him with all the other kids, smiling, and having a good time. He really enjoyed watching the ride next to this one, as he was on this one. It was a bit like a roller coaster that spun, so he was pointing to that and laughing.

The last ride he went on was Speedway, which is a little race car that goes in circles, but really whips the car around the corners. He loved this one! He was a bit small so Dad had to ride on it with him.

We ate some corndogs/hotdogs/burgers for lunch, then stopped by the big arcade. He’s never been to one before, except at the Pizza Factory last weekend.

We let him hop on Dad’s lap and steer on a driving game.

He liked it so much, we had to do it again when we passed by another one.

Then we headed to the “kiddie” area with games built for littles – we let him play a game where you drop a ball and then you get tickets. We scored 30 tickets, which let us get some bubbles from the prize shop!

Vincent is 2 1/2 years old today! Since i just updated recently, there isn’t too much to update but here are a few photos to enjoy.

He recently has taken a liking to playing with the fridge magnets. He will take them from one area, then place them on a piece of paper. Sometimes, after he makes a drawing, he will run and put it on the fridge. I think we did this one time, and so he caught on that this was what you do with a drawing.

Speaking of coloring, we found a new set of markers in a drawer that were made for little hands, so he seems to like coloring more now. We also have been trying to teach him *NOT* to throw the caps on the floor. Previously, he would just fling them anywhere on the ground. Now we stand them up nicely at the edge of the table.

Everyone in the house has been battling colds/sinus infections/ear infections for the last month or so. We had to get Vincent on a neubulizer for his bad cough. He does pretty good with it.

After nap time, Vincent is super cuddly!

So is Butters! But Vinny gets mad when he tried to lie down on top of them, so we have to shoo him away. Poor Butters! Second fiddle — soon to be third!

 

On this day..
