Happy Birthday Daddy!

It’s the last birthday that starts with a 2 (unless you live to 200…).  We love you!

Rock Climbing

Ever since we joined the Y, the twins have been counting down to their 5th birthday so they could climb the rock wall, and ever since Sunday, they have been asking to go incessantly.  We went on Tuesday, and they had a great time.  They even wanted to go again yesterday, which we did, and again today, but we won’t be able to.  I’m glad they are enjoying it so much.  It is so cute to see them in their climbing gear.  They look so little next to the big wall.

I need to take the good camera and get some better pics.  The iphone camera is pretty bad.  I wish it had a better camera, oh well.

Happy 5th Birthday G&J!

How has it been 5 years since this?

Time flies faster and faster, that’s for sure!

The kids and I have been reading through the American Girl books on Kit.  These books are written for kids and set during the great depression.  Grace was so excited to finally have her very own Kit doll!

Jacob has been enthralled with Star Wars for awhile now.  He definitely has plenty to play with now!

…I guess Daddy does too.


We couldn’t leave Clare out, so she got some new hairclips.  She also keeps trying to unsuccessfully adopt Grace’s Grace.  Isn’t it fitting that Kit’s dog is named Grace in the books?


And a special thanks to Gree Gree for the matching nightgowns.

Aunt Kelly came to celebrate with us.


Fascinated with a fish.


All the girls and their dolls!

Not sure why I don’t have a pic of Jake swinging at the piƱata.  I guess my camera man fell down on the job ;)

It was a great birthday, and to all who couldn’t make it, you were missed!
