Kate's celebration continued on Friday when Kate visited my school before her Friday babysitter picked her up. Kate opened several presents from my co-workers and then celebrated with Erika! By Friday afternoon Kate had opened five gifts already!
|And time to cut the cake...|
|The kids were so excited|
to see Aunt Wendy and
Uncle Dan on
|Kate opened a few|
presents when she woke up
on her birthday.
We had a big surprise in store for both kids for the weekend... my sister, Wendy, and her husband, Dan, were flying in at 11:30 PM Friday for the big weekend. Wendy had come for Brennan's fifth birthday too. The kids went to bed and woke up Saturday morning to our special visitors!
|Kate helped set everything|
up before her friends arrived.
After the party we headed home to drop everything off and let Kate open her presents. She was one happy little girl! By the time the last gift was opened, we were all so hungry so we headed to Manchesters to eat lunch. We rested at the house for a little while after lunch before heading to Frankie's Fun Park.
|Getting ready for some gymnastics|
fun! There ended up being 17
|The theme was Hello Kitty!|
|Julie just climbed right in to |
help the little ones across the
balance beam! Thanks Julie!
|We were very impressed with|
Jeff's balancing skills- he and his
son made it across without falling
into the cheese pit!
|Fun at Kenney's|
|The birthday girl gets a |
trophy from Kenney's!
FYI- we're trying to grow Kate's
bangs out... too bad they fall
|Can you find Kate|
behind all of her gifts???
|Julie knows Kate well-|
she was so excited about her
|Kate loved her birthday girl shirt! Thanks|
Aunt Kim and Uncle Spyros!
|Frankie's has so many things to do!|
On Sunday Kate wanted to go to Sunday School so we dropped her off. The rest of us were a little lazier but we headed back to church to listen to Kate sing at the 11:00 AM service. After that we headed to El Rodeo for lunch and then to Monkey Joe's Bounce House. I think Wendy loved it even more than the kids! We are so lucky in Raleigh to have so many fun options for entertainment.
|I actually think Wendy may |
have had more fun than the kids!
She didn't want to leave!
|We gave Brennan a few quarters|
to play the Claw machine at Monkey
Joe's. He kept winning so we
gave him a few more quarters...
|And here he is with all of his|
winnings... plus he already had
given two stuffed animals to
some little kids.
