Weekend recap

We had a BUSY weekend.....whew!

Even though Jonah's actual birthday isn't until Thursday, we had a great party for him on Saturday. His friend Miss Linda (a zoo worker who just loves Jonah) put on an amazing (and free!) show at the zoo with some great little critters to pet/touch.

Then we played in the sand, saw a few animals and moved on to the party at home. Here we played pin-the-tail-on-the-lion,

enjoyed an elephant birthday cake,

and the kids all jumped on the trampoline, played with the bubble machine and tossed frisbees and footballs around. It was chaotic, loud and FUN! :) Jonah loved it all and had such a great time!

On Sunday, Henry was invited to a birthday party for one of his friends. We would have skipped it (it started at 3 and we had superbowl plans!), but Sam changed our plans, invited everyone to watch the superbowl at our house and Henry, Bridget and I headed to Chuck E Cheese for the party. That is Henry's favorite place in the world, so he definitely had a great time! (Henry is the one in the picture with the blue visor on. We made those at Jonah's party, and Henry hasn't taken his off yet-three days later!)

Then we headed home to host our last minute superbowl party! We had fun enjoying the company, eating way too many snacks and watching out for good commercials. Oh, and watching the game too, ha ha!

Jon and Kelly stayed awhile after the game for a few rounds of Guitar Hero (I'm pretty much a rock star!) and to play cards.

And here are just a few more pictures from the zoo!

Sounds like everyone had a really great time. Love the guys on the couch picture, hehe. Like father, like son.

The boys are cute as ever. Birthday's are so much fun when you are little.

Hey, I think Alicia and I are volunteering at the ATF in Michigan. Maybe I can meet Sam! I hope so..is he going to be here?
