I cannot tell you all what an insanely, crazy weekend we've had! It, truly, has been so fun; but we are beyond exhausted. Matter of fact, we, actually, had to wake our kiddos up, to go to church, this morning. Unheard of! Poor things!
It all began, Friday night, with Ezekiel's birthday camp-out. Because I haven't asked permission to show pictures of all the kiddos, here on my blog, and I know a lot of people have strong opinions about that sort of thing, I'm not going to. Just know that we had a blast! We started the evening with a bucket of party favors for everyone.
Deceptively Delicious. Hee!), sea gravel...
Adina's first birthday party, I used Tombo Mono Multi-Liquid Glue to adhere the layers together. I have to tell you all, though, that I wasn't so please with how long it took them to begin to hold, not to mention that the way they held wasn't much to speak of. I know! I was surprised, too! This time, I used Modge Podge, and it worked like a charm! I have a new favorite glue! Yeah! I, then, stamped the whales, in Azurite ink, on white cardstock; hand cut them out; and adhered them to both sides of the stars. A little length of twine, tied around the toothpicks, under the stars, finish them off, perfectly, for an Under the Sea adventure.
We finished up the evening with more time to play in the yard (Our tree swing was a HUGE hit!) and a movie with kettle corn and goldfish mix. The boys retired to the tent, in our backyard, with BJ, around 11 pm and awoke to fruit-face pancakes, with warm, maple syrup, sausages, and orange juice.
After the boys went home, Saturday morning, my parents came to watch our kiddos, so BJ and I could get a little time alone for our anniversary. Of course, Ezekiel had more presents to open...
Anyway, I, completely, forgot to bring my camera, but BJ and I went to lunch at Manny's Mexican Restaurant. Then, we did a little shopping at Antiquities and Oddities Architectural Salvage, Westport Flea Market, and Country Club Plaza, before having a little Coldstone ice-cream and heading home. Check out this pretty, little gem I purchased...
Oh! And before I run, Ezekiel's birthday invitations won Dawn's pick for being On Cue With Color. Yihoo! As Adina would say :). Thanks, Dawn! I'm lovin' it!
