Preparing for the party - Lawanna made two beautiful birthday cakes for our boys, all from scratch. She is my hero! :)
Anderson was our official balloon blower. He has a good set of lungs! He was also a great babysitter while we tried to get the final details put together for the party.
Waiting for the party to begin -
The boys posed by their birthday cakes, and Alec decided to swipe an early taste from his (see picture #2!)
Despite the encouragement, Alec didn't have much appetite for his piece. (He started with diarrhea and a fever later that night.) Ian, on the other hand, dug right in!
I brought four dozen "bumpy" balls to distribute among the kids. I think they were a hit - a day or so later, I took the most adorable video of two toddler boys using theirs for an intense game of soccer. (Stay tuned for that clip at a later date!)
