My twins are now 7!?! When did that happen? I cannot believe how much they have grown this year- in second grade and firmly asserting their opinion on any and everything. Is this a precursor to their teen years? We celebrated their birthday on Sunday last weekend- a small party with close friends (with children) and family- not like the big ordeal we planned last year. I took too many crunched classes this summer to plan anything big. But as long as we had some other kids over and cake, Sean and Ashton were happy. I'll just let the pictures show you how the afternoon unfolded~
First, the cake! The boys requested this cake special- a chocolate picture cake! Raley's makes pretty tasty cakes too. :)
We had balloons- lots of helpers blowing them up: my mom
Kevin's Mom and Uncle George blowing up balloons:
And the balloon wars that followed
And they posed with their tattoos:
And then came the pinata! First comes the turning and dizzyness (Sean's up!):
And WHACK! Daddy was in control of the rise and fall of the pinata.
Next up is Julien,
and cutie-patooti Sofia:
and finally, the blindfold came off so they could actually hit the thing~GO Ellie:
Watch out, Ashton's up!
Dude Sean. Bat much?
Next is CAKE!
Julien being himself~ :)
Ashton, Ellie and Sean~
The boys got a special present from their Aunty Alice, who just started college at Williams in Massachusetts.
The boys went fishing with Grandpa George, and Grandma Crystal caught them on camera with their full load of fish! Talented boys~
Thank you everyone for sharing their special day! (And sorry I got this out so late!)
