Birthday Weekend

Had a great time last Saturday at Will's 3rd Birthday. We had his party at our local rec center so the kids could ride George the Train. Our party theme was "Thomas" so this was a nice touch. Also we got to play in the bounce houses inside. The kids had a blast and the were exhausted by the end of it. I must say ,typically,I hate parties at these kind of places. Usually there is not a chance to personalize it like I do at home. But this was the best idea ever!! No clean up before and after and I didn't have to fix food. Plus we were inside so no complaints about the heat!! And best of all Will loved it!
On Monday(his actual birthday) we took him to the Greenville Zoo which was fun. This was his first trip to this zoo. I think he enjoyed running and playing on the playground more than the animals. It was a nice day. After nap we surprised him with our gift-a new tool bench. Then at dinner he said he wanted to eat outside so we made hot dogs and had a little cookout. It really was a perfect day.

Monkey Joe's Play Date

The other day we met some friends for a play date at Monkey Joe's. It was our first time there and Will had a blast! We were there for about 2 1/2 hrs and he was on the go the entire time. Needless to say he was exhausted by the time we left. He didn't even cry about having to leave!
He wasn't sure what to think about Monkey Joe

Our Fourth

We have been so busy this month! I have several swaps I am participating in and of coarse there's Will's Birthday party in 2 weeks. This year we have decided to have the party at a local rec center mainly because he is into Thomas and they have a little kiddie train. But since it will be way too hot to be outside the whole time we are also going to do a bouncy party and that will include an inside party room. I am relieved that I don't have the extra stress of making sure the house is spotless and the yard is mowed! Not to mention worrying about complaints about the heat! Still have some finishing touches to get to though. Will post more later-here are some of our pics from the 4th. Just had a low key day at home. We had a little firework show(thanks to daddy) and played with sparklers. This was Will's first time seeing fireworks-he called them"bang bang"
