While Marty insists the last three years have been long, I argue just as emphatically that they have been short. How did we get from here...
Okay. Okay. I am going to stop with the sentimental, you've-heard-it-all before, time-is-passing-too fast blather.
This is a birthday recap post. Let's bring on the party!
What could make jumping at a bounce house even better? How about jumping in pajamas?? Here are my two pajama-clad monkeys (and three Minnies) ready for their big party!
We chose the early morning time slot, making us the first party of the day. What happens when you bring three year olds to a bounce house before it opens? They stalk the place!
But, eventually, watched doors do open, and we found ourselves in the "pre-party" room where we waited for our friends, completed our release forms, and dropped off our shoes.
There was so much action we didn't even stop to color our shirts.
Who has time for coloring when we can climb and bounce and slide (headfirst, if we want)??
Everybody was having so much fun, I wondered how we would round them up for the muffins, yogurt parfaits, and birthday cake that awaited us. Ms. Pickles, our party host, knew just what to do...a whistle and a line put all the little monkeys on the move!
All week leading up to their birthday, when I would ask who had birthday coming up, Drew and Emily would both yell, "ME!" Drew would then try to out- shout Emily, yelling, "NO! It's MY birthday!" Apparently, they don't even want to share birthdays.
Here Drew is telling Tamia, "IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!" He makes me laugh!
On to the party room!
And, it looks like it's Emily AND Andrew's birthday!
More of our favorite things...
Surrounded by our awesome family and friends!
Happy birthday, Emily and Andrew!
