We were able to spend half a week up at Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. My parents had given us their timeshare, and we took over that three-bedroom condo like the overwhelmingly large bosses we are.
We arrived on Brendan's 4th birthday, after a breakfast of champions, and opened a few gifts to get the party started!
Nana and Gramps sent this cool racing car kit:
Brendan, like most preschoolers, loves bubbles, and got a bubble gun and a bubble wand which he enthusiastically explained how they worked to his captured audience :)
I created a photo book for him on Shutterfly, ABC style for my little preschool man. (You can create your own book for free. I've done a few of these as bday gifts, and they are well loved!)
He wanted "Old McDonald's with a toy" for dinner. A very Happy Meal it was!
We had a Stomp Rocket for a long time before it got
stomped loved to death, so Brendan was happy to have TWO new stomp rockets to play with.
Not pictured presents included a long-desired slinky, water guns from his godmother, and a gumball machine with gumballs from Gammy and Grandpa. That was a big hit with everyone :)
On the second day, we visited the lovely town of Meredith, New Hampshire.
