Happy 2nd Birthday Benjamin!

Ben had a really fun 2nd birthday! He had his first ice cream in a cone at the River City Roots Festival in Missoula!

We made him work off that $2.50 as a cashier at the Missoula Children's Museum.

We sent him out for groceries. We made him cook us all lunch before we ventured into the museum exhibits.
He provided a little "Piananno"
concert and oscilloscope light show after the meal. Then he performed a little magic show for us!

David re-designed the "Waterworks" exhibit in order to maximize the educational experience Ben was to have for his hard-earned admission money.
Great Grandma "Griz" Eileen came with us to watch the little explorer and wish him a Happy Birthday.

GrandMum & GrandPapa came from Spokane to spend the weekend with the little squirt.

Ben perched himself in the lookout tower to practice his mime bit.

There were many nice exhibits to play at. This light table, however, was infested with frogs.

Ben went on a Dino Dig with his Daddy. Sophie is really jealous!

Ben was brave enough to "Rain" down out of the big "Cloud" after "Evaporating" all the way up there several times.

Following the long drive home and a very late nap, Ben partied some more.

Ben was really excited about opening his presents, blowing out his "#2" candle and eating "Iscweem"! As you will see in the following post, he has acquired a lot of great Birthday Party skills since last year! Happy Birthday sweet little boy! We love you so much!
