July 9, 2016 | We had been talking to E about her cousin’s birthday party for a couple of days, now that she’s old enough to kinda understand what is going on. I helped her color on a card, and she was very excited to bring it over to him…until she crumpled it in the car on the way to the party… 🙂
When we arrived, the toddlers were given party-blowers, and that instantly started a chasing game. Literally all of my photos were blurry, but these were the best of each kiddo!
Then it’s time for “watch the toddlers” and “hold the baby” before the food was ready to eat. A tasty brunch that was worth the wait! These two have so much fun together. This may be the last time they can actually fit in the car at the same time!
Now that E is a little older, she totally gets presents. I knew that this would be hard for her, since she cannot quite grasp that it’s HIS birthday party and not hers. She was right in all of the action for the opening, and threw a bit of a tantrum when I forced her to stop taking his new toys.
Then CAKE! B isn’t a big fan of cake, so he had a cookie…and E was so impatient waiting for her piece. This girl LOVES parties. And sweets. And anything sugar-related. But at least she sang “Happy Dirt-day to B!” (in a cute toddler voice). B did better at this part than last year, but does NOT like his hands to be dirty…so there was a lot of concern over the frosting on his two fingers… 🙂
And the best part of the day — at least in E’s opinion; the POOL. Pools are just the absolute best! We are trying to start the whole “undies” thing, so before I put her in the swimsuit I asked. She said no. Then promptly went outside and squatted on the patio to pee before entering the pool. Pure class I tell you! B loved sliding into the water with a giant splash…E kinda cheated after a splash or two and gently got in. She preferred to spray B with the whale-tail!
Such a great party — Happy Birthday Mr. Big Biscuit!
