On Friday, June 1st, Papa and Nana came to spend the night for Isaac's birthday weekend. As usual, they came and stayed Friday night and then Grandma and Moms came on Saturday and got to stay Saturday night. It's an arrangement that has come to be the norm for the kids parties and I'm so grateful because it works so well. Both sets of grandparents get their time with the kids and both get to participate in the parties.
Mom and Dad, it means the world to me and the kids that you are willing to do it this way and I can't thank you enough for this!
Papa and Nana arrived on Friday night and had to give Isaac part of his birthday ahead of time. He got a battery operated water gun with extra cartridges so of course, we had to go and try it out!
This was the pitiful look I got when I said it was time to go in
Layla however was as happy as can be trying to ride her tricycle!
We finally got everyone in the house and the kiddos in the bed because tomorrow was going to be a big day!
Shortly after we got up and ate, Layla disappeared and got very quiet, which of course, made us all curious. No worries though. We found her in Isaac's room, literally laid back, watching The Wiggles.
After breakfast, we all got dressed and ready to go out and play. Isaac's party wasn't until late that afternoon so we had a full day to play. We decided to go ahead and give Isaac his present from Mommy and Daddy. Needless to say, I was a bit hesitant about it, but Darren was dead set on getting it and of course, Isaac was thrilled! He rode very cautiously at first, but it didn't take him long to get comfortable with it. Now he rides it like an old pro!
Isaac couldn't decide on a theme for his cake this year so I just went with the number 5. It turned out great and tasted amazing. Thanks Wendy for another great cake!
Finally, it was time to head out for the party. We did something different this year and opted to try a pool party. Isaac's friends Ellie and Emma have had their party here the past couple of years and so we were familiar with the pool and all. The weather decided to turn a bit cool on us which threw us for a loop, but it didn't slow the kids down one bit!
Layla had to test the water before she got in.
But it didn't take her long to go for it!
Happy Birthday sweet boy!
Layla thoroughly enjoyed the cupcakes!
Unfortunately, the birthday boy was not ready to get out when the party was over.
This was the pitiful look I got when I told him it was time to go home.
We finally made it home though and we all basically crashed due to pure exhaustion. The kids were up and ready to go again the next morning though for more rides on Isaac's new toy!
