Family Birthday

I promise this will be the last post about Brooklyn's birthday. We celebrated again with my family this past weekend and also celebrated my Dad's birthday which is on the 16th. My parents, along with my sister's family came up for the weekend. We had such a great time together. I'm always sad to see them leave.

Friday night we went to La Huerta for dinner and then hung out at our house. On Saturday morning, all the boys went to the Razorback game (Woo Pigs!) while the girls hung out at home and made an outing to Target. We all learned what it would be like to have a 5 year old, 3 year old and almost 2 year old at Target. Hard work keeping everyone happy and IN the cart!

We came back for naps and when Brooklyn woke up we worked on our "Potato Head" pumpkins.

Claire was totally in to our little play kitchen and I told my sister what a deal ours was a few years ago. We called the place and they had one for sale for even less than we paid for ours, so we went and got it. It is still in our garage and Claire will get to have it for either Christmas or her birthday. So fun! The girls LOVED having Claire here and they all played perfectly together. I love cousins!!

Saturday evening we opened Brooklyn and Papa's presents and then went to eat dinner at Panera. My Dad still cannot eat very much and soup sounded good so that was his choice. Brooklyn also loves soup, so it worked as a good choice for both. We came back home to enjoy some birthday/Halloween cupcakes.

I LOVE this picture of my sweet 79 year old Daddy and my sweet 3 year old Brooklyn. Next year we will be celebrating the big 8-0 for my Dad. Seriously, he must be the youngest looking and acting 79 year old ever!

What a fun weekend!!!

I am smiling at so many things on this post. Your sweet daddy and B, your potato head pumpkins, your family time- but most of all, your comment on your trip to Target.
Add in a 10 month old and go by yourself and that is my everyday life! Hint- it works best with 2 carts. You push one and pull the other with 2 kids in each one. It doesn't leave much room for buying things which keeps the bill a bit smaller :)
