Birthday Blowout

Monday, August 16, 2010
This was a busy weekend for birthdays...
13th - my BIL John
14th - Isabel & Katelynn
15th - my Grannie & Madeline

There were three b'day parties this weekend, but we only made it to two. Saturday was Isabel & Katelynn's b'day party - sorry we had to miss Isabel's party, but it's hard to make everything. Then on Sunday was Madeline's b'day party. My mother was visiting my Grannie this weekend for her birthday and they had a cake & celebrated her birthday Sunday afternoon, but we weren't able to make it. Emma told me the other day, though that she misses her Grannie, so hopefully we'll go up there soon to visit. Last year we had a big party for Grannie's 95th birthday!!

After this weekend Emma is so dark, too - both parties we went to rented water slides so she spent two days out in the sun! She had a blast, though. Katelynn's party was so cute - Jamie did a fantastic job with the party - she had a very neat candy station. Excellent idea for party favors! And the decorations were awesome. And Sunday at Madeline's party Karen had a yummy watermelon fruit bowl! I love the elements of Summer parties - the water fun & the fresh fruit - but b/c Emma's birthday is in December we have to go with different things.

The kids had a blast in the water this weekend...Aaron even had his own little pool to chill in while all the big kids played on the water slide!
Emma, of course, had a blast on the water slide!

Given the cake, cupcakes & candy Emma had at the birthday parties this weekend PLUS the freebit cupcake she got when we went to the store, I think it's safe to say that my little dear had enough sugar for the rest of the summer!! We have to brush double time to make sure all the little sugar bugs are gone!! LOL

This is Joseph - he is about two weeks younger than Aaron & I just thought they were so cute together I had to share this picture!

And of course this little darling face is just so irresistible, I had to share it with you! He was so good all weekend long - we were on the go all weekend and it didn't seem to bother him a bit. He did let us know he was tired and ready to get out of the car a couple of times, but I have to say I can't blame him for that!! Next Monday he is going to be 6 months old already - it is so hard to believe!! Time is just flying by!
