Gilbert's Happy Birthday

Last week our dear Gilbert turned two years old!  Of course, Nana and Papa had to go help to celebrate the big event, and it was lots of fun for all.  However, when you're only two, it's not easy to comprehend the import of a party that's all about you.  (Even though toddler-think is "all about me.")  When it came time for the ceremony of cake, candles, and singing "Happy Birthday" Gilbert had a lot to wonder about!
Once those formalities were done, though, and it was time to eat cake, well... that's pretty comprehendible!  
Daddy helped Gilbert open the presents that all his friends brought him.

Since Gilbert has loved watching Daddy mow the lawn, Nana and Papa gave him his own lawnmower so he can mow, too.  To Nana and Papa's delight, Gilbert loved his lawnmower and mows all over the house and yard.  It makes lots of noise, too.  This is sometimes known as "Grandparents' Revenge."
