Weekend Party Mini-Vacation – Part 3 The Party!

After checking out of the hotel we went to to my SIL’s house to let the kids play and celebrate Cousin A’s 4th birthday and Cousin S’s 1st birthday. We arrived at practically the same time as Bubbe and Grandpa (JL’s parents). They gave our boys presents outside. Then suddenly the fire department showed up. I kid you not, the entire department with trucks came to the party. Apparently they tried to call Aunt J, but did not get them. The fire alarm in their house was going off from the steam of Uncle J’s shower. Ooops!

Below are some photos of the party (sans the one from yesterday of JSL skirt chasing little S.)

NHL sporting his pirate gear. He was flying around the house with cousin A playing pirates. 

Ahoy there Captain NHL

JSL had a nice time visiting with Grandpa. Later on Grandpa really made him happy by feeding him some potato chips.

Are you talking to me?

Both boys had fun playing with new and exciting toys. 

Play time!


Trying to get away

A frightening scene was caught that I do not recall in Peter Pan. 

Darn crocodile! At Cousin S's 1st and Cousin A's 4th B-day party.

NHL did not seem bothered by it. 


Finally it was time to eat. Bubbe and Grandpa brought bagels and lox. Check out the cool bagels for the kids in honor of St. Patricks Day. 

Do you see a problem here?

After a yummy lunch it was time for cake. Aunt J made them herself. The Pirate was for Cousin A’s 4th birthday and Mickey Mouse for Cousin S’s 1st birthday. 

The cakes made by Aunt J

NHL and JSL both enjoyed the cakes. 

NHL loved the cake


Mickey ears taste yummy!

As you can see even Cousin S enjoyed his 1st birthday cake! 

1st B-day cake mash!

After the cake we cleaned up the kids and opened up presents. Then it was time to head off for our adventure home. Thankfully both of the boys fell asleep in the car and woke up when we were close to home.

    Ahhhh—not much beats having boys that wake up close to home!! I love the pics of JSL skirt chasing….that is too funny!!

    The photo of JSL and Grandpa touching foreheads-that one’s my favorite :)

    Candi: We were thrilled when they both slept for the bulk of the trip. Those back country roads would have been long and boring for the boys. As it was I had a hard time staying awake to talk with JL so he could drive.

    Thanks for the tag – as you saw I finally did the post last night.

    Elizabeth: Thanks! I think it was a sweet one too and will probably order one for my FIL.

    C’est Moi
