Birthday Party

James turned three! We had a party with some friends over at our house. The kids played in the pebbles for a long time (even though there was a bounce house out front)!

This boat was a gift for Amelie's 2nd birthday. We've gotten a lot of good use out of it.

Bryce had so much fun in the rock box he didn't want to eat pizza.

At the very last minute, Sam had the idea to get a bounce house. For Amelie's 4th birthday, we went to Bonkers, but it was during the middle of the week and therefore not quite as bonkers. James had been angling to go Tiger Bounce, but Nana Jana was going to be up on Saturday and we thought it would be entirely too much stimulation to have a party there on the weekend. Anyway, the rental company had one bounce house left on Thursday.

They brought it Friday night and picked it up Sunday morning, and whoo boy did we get our money's worth out of it.

There was also a mini ball pit  - here's Ian :)

The kids at the party took a brief intermission to all play with the Jake and the Neverland Pirates legos from Grandma Mary and Papaw.

For a two-week period each September, the kids are stairsteps. Here they are at ages 5, 4, 3, and 2. Ha!
