Celebrating C's Birthday

Princess "C"

She was determined to blow out the trick candles. She leaned in so far that she smashed part of the cake!!

M & N, cousins AND friends

T & B taking a cartoon break together

J LOVES hot dogs, especially BBQ'd ones

Yesterday, despite the looming storm, I took the boys down to my sister's house to visit and to celebrate my niece's 5th birthday. We stopped at a Wal Mart on the way to pick out a gift for C. What was funny to me about this experience was that my boys all stopped at the Lego aisle of the store. I had to scoot them down to the very PINK row of toys. We were almost blinded by all of the pink and princess stuff!

We arrived in good time and the boys ran into the house. They LOVE coming to their cousins' house. There was a bounce house set up in the backyard, and lots of pink decorations. Many of C's friends came and we really enjoyed the party. Hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, chips, pinata, ... the whole 9 yards. The little girls dug into C's dress-up bin and put on princess dresses, too. We stayed for a few hours after the party to continue to visit, but I wanted to be sure to get going before the brunt of the storm hit (and before it got too dark). We had such a great time, and didn't really want to leave.

We watched another movie at home together to wrap up the wonderful day. We were pretty tired. T didn't get out of bed once ... that's how tired we all were.

That's funny that your boys immediatley went towards the Lego isle! Sounds like soemthing that would happen @ our house! Glad you were able to visit with your family.

G and I were just talking about the difference of boy and girl toys and movies. I don't think D has ever watched Little Mermaid or Cinderella and wouldn't be caught dead in the doll section of the toy store. V has gotten used to holding my pink purse, but he lets me know it is NOT his color.

Cousins are so fun! When C smiles, I can totally see T! I love that. I tagged you for some questions!
