Parties galore!

It has been a very busy couple of weeks and I feel it catching up with me. But, the good news is that we've been having a lot of fun and have celebrated some BIG birthdays. My mother-in-law turned 60 and we partied in style - two parties, really. One a fancy dinner out at Paragon, sans kiddos, on her actual birthday and then a party on Sunday with family, friends and neighbors. Happy Birthday, Diane! In addition to the big parties, we had a nice lunch with the ladies (Carter and Bennett, too) the following week. It was a wonderful excuse to get together and celebrate a wonderful mom and grandma who does so much for us. Kennedy got a little pre-birthday treat, as well. Since Auntie Stacy, Uncle Justin and Bennett can't be here for her party they wanted to see her open her gifts. She loved the doll and bassinet and stroller from Auntie Val.

Kyle and I thoroughly enjoyed our night out...it was so fun to get dressed up, enjoy a nice dinner and uninterrupted conversation.

Thankfully the weather was perfect for an outdoor party

The munchkins. I can't wait to watch them grow and play together!

Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Grandma must have been in heaven - all three grand kids there to help her celebrate.

Happy girl, loves presents!

In addition to Diane's parties, we celebrated my grandmother's 90th and great-aunt's 85th birthdays up in Tacoma on Saturday. My grandmother is in amazing shape and I can only hope to be so sharp when I am 90! Wow. The kids did remarkably well with all the craziness and seemed to enjoy the festivities.

Carter LOVED the stage that was in the church hall. He hopped up and serenaded GG with a wonderful rendition of "Happy Birthday". Very sweet.

This past weekend we helped our friend Brevin celebrate his big 2nd birthday. Carter had a great time at the baseball themed party and everything was so fun and cute. Happy Birthday, Brev!

Watching Brevin open all his presents. I was so proud of Carter for not jumping in and "helping." He did a great job and helped with one present but then sat back and watch.

The birthday boy! Happy 2nd Birthday, Brevin!
