We Want Google!

This morning, Brian, Megan and I went to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park to show our support for a localized effort to bring Google Fiber to Durham. More than 700 people showed up to help spell out "Google" on the field. We're in the little "g"... in the middle section that connects the top circle to the bottom circle.

Megan's favorite part of the day was seeing Wool E. Bull, the Durham Bull's mascot. She was a little scared of him at first (he is a giant bull after all), but then she warmed up to him and even wanted to have her picture taken with him.

You can see more pictures of the event here and on our photo page.

All Dressed Up!

Megan picked out her own outfit this morning. I think this is one of those rites of passage for two-year-olds.

Once we got the bathing suit on, Megan exclaimed, "Megan all dressed up!"

Happy 2nd Birthday, Megan!

It's so hard to believe that little Megan turned 2 today! These last 2 years have gone by so fast! Megan had a great day today and was really excited to turn 2. She definitely knew it was her birthday and was very intent on having her "purple cake."

Daddy went into work a little late this morning, so that we could go out for Megan's birthday breakfast. We went to Elmo's diner where Megan ate french toast, sausage, eggs, bacon, gravy and orange slices. (Can you tell she finally got her appetite back after being so sick??)

After getting lots of birthday wishes throughout the day, we went to have some portraits made. The photo session didn't go all that great, but when the photographer started blowing bubbles and sneezing kitties off his head, we finally got some smiles. And Dad showed up just in time to play with Megan so I could pick out the photos.

From the photographer, we went to the mall where Megan got to make a birthday animal at Build-A-Bear. She chose a tiger and named him Fuzzy.

Finally back home, we had dinner followed by birthday cake. It wasn't purple, but I've promised her that she will have the purple cake this weekend. She blew out the candles, ate the icing, played with the candles, then tore the cake into pieces when I wasn't looking!

Happy Birthday, Megan. We're so proud of you and love you so much!!!
