The marathon is over!

Our two weekends of nonstop fun have ended! And we made it through them unscathed! Last weekend we had three birthday parties, and Bob had a festival. The parties were all set for different times. This weekend we had two birthday parties and our church's Easter Egg hunt. We weren't so luck with the schedule this time. So, we hit the first birthday party, and left before the cake was served (yes!)

The boys still had fun. Baby Plum tried so hard to climb up in the firetruck like the big boys. The firemen talked about safety and one of them donned his uniform. Baby Plum was very intrigued and kept scooting closer. But when the fireman attempted to give him a high five, Baby Plum made a quick retreat.

Little Elvis answered the 9-1-1 question correctly! (Yay to having two fire station parties on two consecutive weekends) and volunteered to stop, drop and roll, even though he had no idea what he was doing.

After this, we headed for the Easter Egg Hunt, about 20 minutes away. By the time we got there, the younger kids had hunted. So Little Elvis hunted with the 4th-6th graders. One of the big boys helped him, and then another mother helped him. He told me he didn't need my help. After scoring 6 eggs, he got his face painted and rode a horse!

I was shocked. He wasn't nervous or scared at all. And did a great job! My photography skills aren't so great, and we have a very fuzzy version of what I'm sure would have been a super-cute smiling on a horse picture.

It was chilly and Baby Plum just snuggled with his Gram.

After that we headed to McDonald's for lunch, and then to party number 2! A pirates and pixies party.

I thought that meant he needed to dress up, so I made him a pirate hat. He didn't need to dress up. He still looked cute. As did Baby Plum. Baby Plum is so ready to be a big boy. He spent this entire party doing his best to play with the older boys. Not his brother. No. He wanted to play with the 10 and 11-year-olds! I had to keep pulling him out of the middle of their basketball game.

Little Elvis played with kids his age, and told all of the parents about SuperDog.

It was fun. And I'm so glad that we have a bit of a rest now.
