playing outside/quick party re-cap

It is getting hot out. It was in the 80s when we got up this morning, so the kids and I went out in the backyard for some fun play time.

Jack and Braley are obsessed with their big sister. When she comes over to their playmat, they love to watch her.

Just totally mesmerized with her!

They are really starting to reach up and grab their toys.

Paige got some new boots for her birthday : )

And her Mele and Papa got her a new picnic table!

Her party was crazy fun! All her friends (and ours too!) came over. The moon bounce was insane. It was HUGE! Once we put our kids to bed, my girlfriends and I went out back and jumped in it for almost an hour! It was so funny! We were doing toe touches, going down the slide...good times : ) However, I had a laparoscopic surgery done on Wednesday*, so that probably wasn't the smartest decision. I have been very sore since then : / But it was fun!

Paige got very overstimulated and had way too much sugar that night. She cried in her crib for over an hour. We kept going in and rocking her, she'd fall asleep, then wake up hysterical when we laid her down. Rinse and repeat. Rinse and repeat. She finally fell asleep about 3 hours past her normal bedtime. She was back to herself Sunday morning, though!

The party was a big success. Thank you so much to all our friends and family! We are blessed to have such great friends to spend our lives with. There is not a lot that makes me happier than seeing all our kids playing together and having fun. I can't wait to get pictures! I'll post them when I get them!

*More on my surgery another post.

Your kids are so beautiful!!

I'm glad the party went well - and no wonder you are so sore. You are crazy to be jumping in a moon bounce!

I wish we would have been there to celebrate!
