Emma’s Birthday Party

< | >

We now return you to our regularly scheduled broadcast of party party every weekend. This time we actually took the show on the road so we could celebrate in another city. Come, join us as we party yet again.

First, we staple. We had a PTA project to complete before the weekend.

We started the weekend with just the two boys hanging out around Nan and Papa’s house, waiting patiently for something fun to happen.

So bored. SO BORED.

So we set them on a project (birthday cards).

Then back to being bored. I don’t now who could possibly have taught them to do that.

It was me. They were trying to sneak (quite unsuccessfully) down the stairs without anyone seeing them.

Owen’s needs a little work. We’ll get there.

Then, when all hope was lost of having any fun for the weekend…

A wild cousin appears!

We haven’t seen these kiddos in quite some time, so the boys were super excited to finally have a chance to hang out with them again. Not long after they arrived, though, it was time to get going off to the party.

There was a giant inflatable slide there.

Plus a painting project for all to enjoy.

And lots of hams.

And a birthday girl!

And some weirdo who climbed up on the swingset to get an aerial shot.

Owen was quite proud of his handiwork.

Christy managed to catch herself a RyanPaul.

Upon his release, he returned to his natural habitat.

The boys enjoyed a bit more playtime on the swingset and elsewhere.

I may have gone up there as well.

After all the kids played their way into a sweaty mess, it was time to gather them up for a little bit of spectacle.

Ladybug piƱata time!

Everybody got a decent crack at it.

Owen’s T Ball practice came in handy.

Candy!

Baby Brees was there too, so Christy got a chance to have some baby time.

Then it was back to more goofy cousin time.

And some light vacuuming, apparently.

The party drew to its natural conclusion and all that was left was to hang out and get some rest. In the morning we got all dressed up and head out for church.

Which for them meant goofing off in Sunday school.

We took a little time after church to get some family photos.

Which of course meant more goofing off.

It was nearly time for us to head home, but we had to go grab a bit of lunch first.

DSC_0496

Which means even more goofing off.

I’m glad we got a chance to see these kiddos again.

Hopefully it won’t be quite so long until we see them again. It was a pretty busy weekend, photo-wise, but I also managed to snag a quick video on the GoPro while I was messing around in the bounce house slide thing. Feel free to enjoy that before you head out to the Internets beyond.

This is what it’s like.
