Birthday Weekend!!

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating Jameson's 2nd birthday and Zachary's 4th! On Saturday we had a combined pirate birthday party at the beach. It was nice, but it got really windy which made it a little harder to enjoy ourselves. The kids all got pirate names, temporary tattoos and a loot bag which was buried in the sand in a treasure chest. We had a fun little treasure hunt, complete with clues and a map in order to find that X marks the spot on the beach. Of course there are no pictures of this event. Billy was manning and guarding the little BBQ on the ground and I was running around doing everything else, as well as trying to make sure nothing was blowing off the tables.
Ian, Stephanie and baby Emmett (AKA- Emmett emerald eye) joined our celebration which was so awesome of them to come down!
The boys all had a great time. Jameson and Zachary both didn't make it all the way through the party and fell asleep on the beach. Too much excitement I guess. We had to carry both of the birthday boys to the car :)

Happy Birthday Zachary! Can't believe you are 4.


  1. It's a lot of work to raise a family, but it sure is worth it!! What cute boys they are.

  2. I can't believe how big they are getting! Happy Birthday to my favorite blonde nephews! They are super cute and it sounds like you threw them an awesome birthday party. Love you.

  3. I feel like I have kept up with all the fun things, but it's fun to look at all the cute pictures of everything. Your family is so great.
