A Pirate Party...

Thursday Donna, myself & the boys ventured down to my dad's outside of Orlando. My cousin was getting married on Saturday so we joined our extended family for the occasion.

Friday, while so many family members were in town for the wedding we had a cookout & semi-small birthday party for the boys.




My bonus sister, her husband & their 2 boys came. So did my sister, brother in law & their son. Then there were our aunts, uncles, cousins, close friends & meeting the boys for the first time was my grandmother.

The boys had so much fun playing with everyone, maybe too much? It was hard to get them to slow down for cake. I think we probably should have gone straight to cake once they finished eating dinner instead of letting them play again & then trying to get them to come back in again. They did happily eat cake once they had it :)

Kellan, I think this boy needs a sandbox!

Getting them to slow down again enough to open gifts didn't happen. Once we got the boys inside & rinsed off from the pool or in Kellen's case the sand he was covered in, Donna & I started opening their gifts in hopes it would peak their interest but they just aren't there yet with ripping paper off boxes. Their cousins were happy to help though & once the boxes were all opened they were geared up & playing again, not with the gifts but the actual boxes all stacked up & resembling a slide.

    1. Lol... I wasn't even going to bring up the cake :-/ they didn't write Happy Birthday & they spelled his name wrong :( I didn't pick it up though until nap time & did not have time for them to fool around with it.

      We missed you all too, my cousin Braelyn could have used a few girls to play with, lol...
