Today was J's birthday party - his birthday is Tuesday - and he had a blast. He had a racecar-shaped cake and a bunch of his friends at a local gymnastics place. They had a moonbounce and all sorts of fun things for the kids to bounce all over. They had a real blast. The best part for J, of course, was collecting his loot. He was just beside himself with the anticipation of getting to open his presents. When he finally did get to, he was absolutely giddy:
Birthday Party Take 1
Next Sunday is the triplets' 1st birthday party, but we're doing something much more low-key. Just some quiet fun in the park with friends and some cake.
