Happy Birthday Boys!

Last weekend, the children and I took a trip to Murfreesboro to visit family and... celebrate Isaac and Joshua's birthdays! The boys were born 6 weeks and 1 day apart, so we try to celebrate them together sometime in the middle.
Joe wasn't able to make it because of work. Aunt Boo and Uncle Kevin weren't able to make it because they were out of town. Losers.

Anyhoo, we had a good time anyway! We even had a special guest show up!



Fun cake for the boys. It took a lot of coaxing to get the boys to eat their lunches enough to earn a piece of cake.



This was taken after the song was sung. You can tell it was after the song because Abby was allowed to be in the shot. She didn't understand that it was not her birthday as well, since we sing 'Happy Birthday' to everyone when we are in the car.

After the song, when Abby was allowed back to the table, we sang the song again just for her. I didn't video that.



This is Abby enjoying HER cake. A little demonic looking.

To make up for the family members that could not show up, we brought in ..... Aunt Beth; of Uncle Craig and Aunt Beth!



She just happened to be in the right place at the right time. The kids were thrilled to see her and so were we! Her presence helped fill the void. We'll have to do this again!

A good time was had by all! Thanks Grammy Pat and Papa Joe!

I'm so sad I wasn't there. I have been anxiously waiting for you to post pics so I could pretend like I was part of the action. Sniff sniff. I make a darn good Easter bunny, that's for sure. I'll never miss a birthday party again!

Isaac and Joshua have finally figured out birthdays, especially the fact that they ought to happen every day. What fun! We were so glad to have Aunt Beth here to help celebrate the occasion!

Love,
Grammy Pat

Yay for birthday cake! I have to say that the hardest part of the day was getting the boys to eat their lunch.
