The weekend

Be prepared for birthday overload this week. Tuesday is my sweet #2’s first birthday and Wednesday is #1’s third birthday. I’ll try to keep it short.

The weekend was great. The girls had a blast and so did we. We had the castle bounce house for a full day. There was a lot of jumping and bouncing to be done. #1 did not want to part with her “princess castle!”

Like her sister at her first birthday party, #2 slept through the whole thing.

But, we did get a picture of them together in their bounce house.
Aunt Emily got some bouncing time with the girls.
And, #1 got to jump really high with Grandpa Joe.
#2 got to walk with Grandma and Aunt Emily.
And I found a great blue wall for an awesome backdrop. Of course the lighting was all wrong, but it sure is a cool wall. We will definitely be back. (Look at that sassy little foot point).
And a cool white wall, too. There might have been a bribe involving chocolate for #1 to take this one.
Happy almost birthday girls. Every time I look at you and hold you, I can’t believe that you came from me and that you are mine (well, I guess I should say “ours!”)
