This weekend was full of celebration. Saturday was Ian's 3rd birthday party! I made the mistake of telling the twins on Saturday morning that "today" was Ian's birthday party. This generally poses a problem if by "today" i mean after their nap. So when it was noon (2 hours early for their nap) and I was trying to get them into bed Mr. Procrastinator pulled out all the stops including the cutest epiphany. Tom says in all seriousness, "Hey! We forgot to go to Ian's birthday party!" So then I had to try to explain to 2 three year olds (again) that when they wake from the mid-day nap it's not actually a new day, it's the same day, and we'll go to Ian's party when they wake up.
Despite having an early nap and being woken up early to get in the car and sit for an hour long drive to the park, they had an absolute BLAST at the party. There were slides and sand and sprinklers and cake! What more could a 3 year old want?
Somehow Abby escaped the sprinklers without getting a single drop on her. Tom, not so much.
Tom and Abby were so excited to give Ian his gifts. I had wrapped them and Tom and Abby decorated the package with stickers and ribbon. Abby took about 30 different stickers and lined them up on the package in one single curvy line that continued from the front to the back. It was darling. She was so proud.
Tom on the other hand found himself too busy in the sand pit by the time gift opening rolled around. I went to go claim him so he could give Ian his present but he exclaimed, "I have a lot of work to do!" Alas, he was too busy and remained in the sand pit.
