^^ on his actual birthday, moses got in a great nap during our drive to bear lake. when we arrived, he was thrilled to play with cousins and dogs! i don’t think i’ve ever seen him giggle so hard as he was while playing with cousin dean and puppy scout! ^^

^^ he immediately started scooting around the house, laser focused on his new awesome mode of transportation! ^^
it seems like every kid in london has one of these little scooters. mo has been fascinated by kids on them for months and we’ve talked about how maybe, one day, moses would have a scooter of his own. he was ecstatic to get one for his birthday, and the excitement hasn’t worn off at all!
