NY Part II

Sunday was a day of birthday celebrations, so we were able to distract the kids from the rain for most of the day. By dinner time, though, they definitely had cabin fever and the adults were counting the minutes until bed time!

Mairead, Dave, and Rachael all celebrate birthdays within a month of one another, so Grandma had the fun idea to make one big day of birthdays. Things started off with a breakfast present for the birthday girls and guy. The girls got doll clothes and had fun with their Bitty Babies for a while.

Jack made the most of the rainy day and did some coloring.

Rachael and Mairead decorated the cake that Grandma made. That is Han Solo for Dave, various species of cats for Rachael, and Toy Story figures for Mairead.

At dinner, we watched everyone blow out the candles. Mairead must think her birthday is a whole month long- pretty cool stuff when you are three!

The girls opened their dinner gifts with some help from Ry.
Then some random tickling broke out.

Earlier in the day, the girls spent some time coloring together. Love this picture of the two of them.

This toy pack n' play was Mairead's lunch present.

A day of birthdays can be pretty tiring!

Good thing Grandma's lap is nice and comfy.

The boys were fascinated by Rosie. Jack kept following her and saying, "I see puppy!"

These two videos show the boys' first attempt at playing some kind of game of tag. I had never seen them play this way before and it was pretty fun to watch. They just chased each other through the room and then laughed hysterically. I love watching them learn to play together and to enjoy each other. How cool to have a built in best friend? Twins are a lot of work, but they are so much fun and so fascinating!

Thanks to Grandma, Grandpa Ivan, Aunt Ry, Uncle Dave, and Rachael for a great visit!
