I hope you find this interesting enough to keep up (or at least enough to keep checking back in every once in a while)!
We celebrated the boys' third birthday last weekend. This was the first time they were totally into their birthday (i.e. not crying when they saw burning flames on the cake). They were so into it this year that they let me take some pictures of them together for their invitation:
For the first part of their birthday celebration (Friday), we went to Puddicombe Farms. We tried to do a train ride that day on the farm but unfortunately, they only have the engineer available on Tues/Thurs/Sat/Sun. We still had a great time, though. This was the first time the boys got to go apple picking. They also picked out their own pumpkins for the second year in a row.
On Saturday we had their birthday party. It was raining outside but it was warm & fun inside! They still don't have too many of "their own friends" so it was mostly adults with a few others their size (which also mean no real games for the kids to play). We had lunch for everyone (pizza & pulled pork sandwiches) & then cake along with ice cream. Afterwards, we decided to brave them opening presents. Well....it went okay. They decided they needed to tear into some of them before we were ready with the cameras. Luckily, it was only one (well 3 because they each got a box from the same person) & we still got some shots of them opening them. We went from 8 that morning until 2 the next morning (I went until 3). It was totally worth it & we loved seeing everyone!
Monday, it was time to say "Until next time" to auntie & uncle by taking them to the airport & spending the rest of the day playing at grandma's house.
We are so blessed to have so many people that care about us & these boys. Thank you to everyone that made this weekend great!
