Alright I am finally posting pictures of John and Emily's birthday.
Things just got so crazy for a while there through the end of July and start of August!!
We had several of their friends over for a pool party/sleepover on the Friday after their birthday. Cousin Emma got to join in the fun too since she and her dad had just arrived from LA.
We walked to the pool to swim and eat pizza for the evening. I had planned on staying until the pool closed at nine o'clock, but if you've read the old posts, you know my plans got changed.
We no more than got to the pool than they closed it due to finding poo in the pool at rest break.
Yes, that is gross! At least the kids hadn't been in the water yet!
Instead of swimming, the kids came home and played basketball and such in the back yard until dark. Then they broke out the Wii and a few movies to last the rest of the evening. It really did work out OK.
A couple days later we had a family celebration while Uncle Todd and Emma were still around. We did the whole cake and ice cream and singing Happy Birthday to them.
Grant wore the Thomas the Train hat since John refused.
Pretty low keyed birthday, but I think they enjoyed it.
I think the thing they enjoyed most was their birthday present. They only got one thing from us. We combined some of their own money with their birthday money and were able to get them laptops to use for school and personal.
Dad helped them get the computers going...he's the techie of the family.
Now they can be found doing this as often as they can (which isn't as often as they'd like)
The only reason they are sitting together as if they love one another?
The TV was turned on too!! Ahhhh, the world of kids today.
Three weeks and counting down
She's really starting to get big.
Hope there's only a few in there!
