Five and Two

WARNING:  This post is full of pictures:)  In no particular order.  You've been warned.

Last weekend, we celebrated both the boys' birthdays with their friends in our backyard.  Initially I was a little worried about it being too hot to be hanging out in our backyard in the middle of August.  But we had the most amazing weather!  I think it was in the low 80's with a cool breeze.  Perfect.  And perfect for a night full of superhero fun:)  It was a crazy night and I'm thankful that we were able to be outside.  7 families...15 walking kids, 3 babies....and this doesn't even take into the account the babies still in-Utero:) 

We did a superhero themed party for the boys.  I saw some ideas on Pinterest (I have a love hate relationship with that site:)) and went from there.  We had cape decorating and several games to play with.  Throw friends, pizza, and cake and ice cream in there and you have the perfect evening.  So, I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.  The first half of the pictures were taken by Derek (this is Eli's best friend's dad:))  I was having a very hard time keeping track of all the kids while taking pictures.  Plus, I had a very cute "helper" on my hip most the night and he enjoys pulling the camera strap while I'm trying to take pictures....makes photo taking a challenge for sure.  Enjoy!

 I told B we are going to have watch these two in the future.....they are a month apart in age...and already have a love for each other:)  They are both also kind of loners, and love Love LOVE to eat.  They enjoy their alone time, and apparently enjoy their alone time together.  They snuck off to the same side of the yard and Derek caught them being cute:)

 Party favor bags and capes ready to go and waiting for friends!

I'm having such a hard time grasping the fact that my boys are 5 and 2!  So crazy!!
