Last weekend was cause for MUCH celebration in the Anderson household. Not only did we celebrate Mark's 2nd birthday, but Daddy returned from a 24 day mission to Poland!
Funny story: Scott didn't actually arrive until after the boys had gone to bed on Saturday night. On Sunday morning, Mark crawled out of his bed, ran down the hall and climbed in our bed (which he often does). He was quite surprised to find Daddy there! He said, "Uh oh! Dada!":-)
This was definitely the longest we've ever had to be apart as a family, which made it all the more sweeter that Scott took Monday off just to celebrate!
We spent Monday morning at Bellows enjoying the beautiful weather and beach. It was perfect!

|Sweet brother moment!|
|Talking Daddy's ear off...|
|Keaton was really worried about this sign. He kept warning us and everyone else who would listen to "be very careful!"|
On Monday evening, we met Karen and her boys at Chuck-E-Cheese! I said it once, I'll say it again - Monday night is the ONLY time to go to CEC! It is so much more laid back than party-central-Saturday. They boys basically had the place to themselves and had such a blast!
|Mark's favorite ride was the hot cocoa cup. He probably rode it 20 times!|
|Here's comes the cake!|
|He was not so sure about Chuck E at first...|
|"Happy Birthday to Mark!"|
|He warmed up to him pretty fast... Say "Chuck E Cheese!"|
