We typically do not celebrate birthdays so lavishly, and though none of this week was planned to be so over-the-top, I think Maddox's anxiety over turning four has been settled!
He had a stellar week!
Last blog, I posted about the museum with friends and putt-putt that never happened with Daddy.
The next day, the doorbell rang, and Aunt Allison (sad that she couldn't make his party) had bombarded our porch with a special birthday surprise!
We watched the ESPY awards, that Lance had recorded for us.
We snuggled. Played. And did a whole lot of nothing.
Friday, we went to a water park with some of our friends.
We stayed there about 8 hours...
No naps for anyone (not even our babies)...
and the kids had the best time, and acted great!
Ellie and Maddox played so well together and were brave enough to ride even the biggest slides!
I may have slammed my head into a slide so hard that the life guard came down and asked me if I thought an EMT should look at me and have a sore neck, still, 3 days later.... or I may have not.
Beckham and Audrey love each other.
We even caught them kissing through a break in the poles of the steps!
Luckily, I had my phone on me and was able to snap a pic of pure, sweet, innocence.
I always get nervous that no one is going to show up...
I worry that we won't have enough food-- or party favors...
And I ask myself a million times if it is worth it.
But then it is time...
and our friends pull up...
and it always turns out great!
And the kids have tons of fun!
After his party, we held true on our promise of putt-putt,
and our friend Luke, brought his son and 2 nephews along to play as well.
that four, really isn't all that bad!
