Wow it has been a busy busy week! Adley celebrated his 6th birthday on Monday. We let him pick where we went out to dinner - he chose Fatz. Grandma & Grandpa joined us and we had a great time. He opened up some of his presents - his new favorite is Kung Zhu. He got a hamster and I had one for Eli as well - Eli ended up opening up his and then Aidan opened his up early. I wasn't sure if Liam would like them, but of course he did so we had to go get him one too. Our house is very noisy with 4 hamsters running around making various noises.
On Thursday we had our very first 'friend' birthday party. We rented a bounce house place and invited kids from school, church and work. We had a pretty good turn out and the kids had a blast. We let them play for awhile - ate pizza/salad, then cake/ice cream and then more playing time! Birthday parties are definitely A LOT of work, but the smiles on the kids faces made it all worth it. I told Jared we could do one every ten years - that means I really only have 1 more to do for the big boys!
We did celebrate with Jared's family about 2 weeks ago. We had a campfire and roasted hot dogs and of course marshmallows for smores! We celebrated 5 birthdays that day - and for some reason I have no pictures - darn!
We also met with our builder again today. Before he got there we were talking with the concrete guys - they said that we couldn't have picked a better builder. They love working for Rich Builders because they don't cut corners. That made us feel great about our decision. We have always had a good feeling about our builders and so far have loved working with them. They meet with us when needed and our house is on schedule - what they say is going to be done - gets done!!!
