Today is the 2nd birthday of Mairead's original BFF- Connor! Mairead has known Connor since he was literally less than 24 hours old! Yesterday, Connor's Mom and Dad had a birthday party for him, so we packed into the minivan and made the trip to Stoughton for the afternoon. We were really happy to see the Estees again, and Mairead had a blast at the party. The BEST part was that Jaime gave her her very own balloon to take home. She thought that was the best thing that ever happened to her. She told us about a thousand times, "It's a BLUE one!!!"
Mairead definitely remembered the Estee house, even though she hasn't been there in a few months. She played with the dog, Bailey, and made herself right at home in the playroom. When it was time for cake, she ran right over to the chair she always sat in when we visited the Estees. One bad thing about moving to Lowell is that we are now an hour away from them, so we don't get to see each other as much as we would like. But the kids pick up right where they left off!
The birthday boy!
Daddy and his boys.
Joey's dad asked Mairead, "Are you a mess?" And she yelled out, "Yes!" with a big smile on her face... along with lots of frosting and crumbs.
At this party, there was actually another set of twins! Jaime's friend, Jess, has a daughter, Layla, who is a little younger than Mairead, and then her own twin boys, Quincy and Brady-- just a funny coincidence that Jaime has two friends with toddler daughters and twin baby boys.
Are they a little magazine ad waiting to happen or what?
