Party #2

Wednesday we celebrated Andrew's birthday with his friends at Monkey Joe's. MJ's is a bouncy place here in Gainesville where you can have birthday parties. It was our first away-from-home parrty, and it was a lot of fun! It was quite a change from the last five parties we've had for Andrew and Coleman. All we had to do was pick up the cake, show up, party, and leave. They did everything else! They even gave me invitations to send to our friends. I don't think we'll do all our our parties off site from now on, but it was perfect for this year with a brand new baby. Here are the pictures from Party #2.

We had pizza for our friends. Andrew got to eat in this big monkey chair/throne thing. He was so funny sitting up there in that huge chair.

After lunch, we had cake. Andrew LOVES the movie Cars right now, so Publix made a super cute cake. It was funny to watch all the little boys eyeing Lightning and Mater while we were singing and cutting the cake. After they ate, they all shared the new cars.

Gigi and Papack came for the party to keep Jonathan so that Brent and I could enjoy Andrew and his friends. Thanks! I know you really hated to do it, and probably had something much more fun planned for Wednesday morning. ;)

How many monkeys do you see in this picture?

Emelia, Caroline, and Hannah-Banana

We jumped a little before we ate, and after we finished the festivities, we jumped some more. It was pretty hard to get pictures of everyone, and even harder to get pictures in focus. Preschoolers are hard enough to catch being still, but it was practically impossible at this place.
Here's Luke, Coleman, and Hannah jumping.

Brent and Coleman coming down a slide

I wish I had videoed so you could hear him laugh and squeal as he came down the slide. He loved it!

One more party to go. . .

Looks like a fun party. Love the cake. That chair/throne is hilarious! I also love the pic of Brent going down the slide. The things we do for our kiddos....
