Happy Birthday Carter!

Our favorite neighbor Carter turned two a couple of weeks ago, an event that is fast approaching our brood as well, and we were delighted to go to his birthday party at the Bounce House! This was a totally new experience for the kids. They've never been in one of those big inflatable bouncing things before, but once they warmed up to it, they had a blast!

They weren't real sure about it at first. That unstable, bouncy floor made them a little nervous. we started out in the "beginner" house which has a smallish slide in it. It was small compared to the other slides, but twice as big as the little slides they're used to! After awhile, they got pretty good at climbing up the stairs themselves and thoroughly enjoyed sliding down!

After that, they were ready for bigger and better slides!

Up these steps...
...and down this slide!


All in all, they had the most fun they've probably ever had! It really wore them out!

After all that playtime, it was off to open presents and eat cake. Another first, the kids each got to drink their own Capri Sun drink. They'd never sucked through a straw before! They're so deprived of all the important life experiences! We had to help them hold the drinks though because they wanted to squeeze the pouches, and we all know what happens when you do that! Well, WE know what happens, but they didn't! We got a little sticky after that!

To help keep the mess to a minimum, I fed the kids their cake. And ate a little of it myself! Yum!

Looks like such a fun day! I just saw that place for the first time on Jon & Kate Plus 8 recently. It looks like a lot of fun for little guys! (tiring for mommies & daddies though. LOL)

Hi there! I recently came across your blog after Googling for information about infant roseola when my now 17-month-old daughter had it. I've really enjoyed reading your story. I'm sure you get this all the time, but FOUR! WOW! Looking forward to reading more.
