On Friday Dave came home a bit early. We took some time for naps since most of us are once again struggling with colds & coughs. Then in a spur of the moment idea I suggested to Dave that we whisk the kids over to the park. First we stopped at the Dollar Store b/c I simply had to get my little Bug-a-Boo a special birthday balloon. We got to the park and had a blast. We ran around with the kiddos and laughed & played. We all played until it got so dark we could hardly see a couple of feet in front of us. Lol! Dave kept saying what a great idea it was. We then stopped in at BK for take-out & then to the grocery store for an ice cream cake & a few things for Bug's b-day party Sat. night. Once we got home we had dinner & then did presents while we waited for the cake to thaw a bit. We all really enjoyed watching Bugs with his new presents. The other kids were great. They were only happy & excited for their brother. There was no jealousy whatsoever. E-boy especially makes me smile. He loves a good birthday and that's that! Hee, hee. He doesn't care if he is the birthday boy or not he is only happy to be there to celebrate. Lol! It also warms my heart to watch the children give gifts to each other. They have either bought or made them on their own. Often they are always rushing off to their room to find just one more present to give their sibling. It is often one of their own treasures that they choose to give away. They get caught up in the joy of giving & I love that!
Bugs & his special birthday balloon.
Bugs loves, loves, LOVES the slides!
There he goes!
Here he is on yet another slide. Lol!
He amazes me on how well he walks the jiggly, swinging bridge.
Boo loves this thing. No fear.
.E-boy on the see saw...but he wasn't alone for long!
Yes, we are nuts.
This was hilarious!
Poor Bugs. We waited & waited & waited. So much for "fast food". Ha, ha.
Normally I NEVER allow my children to do such things but E-boy scrambled up there quicker than a squirrel. I commanded him to get down but then couldn't resist a quick picture. Bad Mommy.
Of course Bugs had to do what big brother did. The soda was arranged like a throne with steps leading up. Don't worry this was a one time event.
Bugs couldn't wait & I couldn't blame him as it was way past supper time.
I love this picture.
Present time! Present Time! Open a present, see what's inside!
