Putting the finishing touches on the "dinosaur" cake!
Owen was in a wonderfully pleasant mood all day long! He liked having the dinosaur mask on!
Lots of new toys!!!
Do you like my new tractor? That ball that Cody is holding is a big hit too! It plays music and shakes. Owen loves it....unfortunately it plays just one song very loudly....it might be banished to a downstairs toy!
Sunday we met up at Abby's pizza after meeting. How many Sanderson boys does it take to drive the race car? At one time we did have all 5 of them too!
Our hosts, Andy and Patty, provided a roll of quarters that were doled out to the kiddos. My boys had never realized that these machines take quarters and have always been content just pretending. Hopefully we can convince them that it was a special treat from Andy and Patty and not something to be expected!
Owen started his birthday really really early! I guess he didn't want to miss any of it! He was up for good at 5:30. By 7:30 he had ridden his car down the first flight of stairs. He had a bonk on his forehead, a bloody nose, and a fat lip. By 8:00 we were on our way to a birthday party. Not Owen's birthday party though, Brielle's! :)
The boys were singing on the way down to Wenatchee. And notice Owen's front facing car seat! :)
The birthday girl on her 3rd birthday!
Happy Birthday sweet boy!
We tie-dyed t-shirts! I know! Brave, huh!
Cupcakes and snacks
We will celebrate Owen and Wade's birthdays this weekend. Owen was pretty grumpy most of the day, I think he might have had a headache from his fall. Hopefully he will be feeling better for his party! Can you believe he is already a year old????? I can't!!!
We stayed with Mom and Dad Wed-Fri and then they left to go to Portland. Then, the house filled up! Mike and Tawn had planned a weekend get-together and we used Mark and Karol's house! It was us, Mike, Tawn, and their girls, Derek and Julie, Derrick, Kate, and little Zoey, Amy T., Fred S., and Daniel.
On Saturday we went down to Salt Creek and climbed on the rocks.
Playing at the playground
Julie was a trooper, pushing up to 3 kids at a time!
Owen liked hanging out with Buck
Enjoying the amenities!
Fred won the hearts of the 2 year-olds with a story and a snuggle!
Back at the playground
Basketball hoops with nothing but a football led to the invention of a new game. Basketfootballsky or something like that. It looked fun and they were all sweaty, so it must have been a good workout too!
Jason, Mike, Derek, and Derrick
Owen, Lydia, and Zoey in the high chairs
Chatting with Kate
The Thompson Tribe
The boys had a blast running from the waves. Well, until Tristan decided just to get wet in the background.
The Sanderson Swarm
The Nap Nest.....my alliteration skills need a bit of practice!
Fun at the spit
Bath time! This picture is not the best, but I picked out the one that had the fewest "parts" showing. :) The only one that is missing is Lydia. She had her own bath. :)
On the ferry home
We had a wonderful weekend with great friends! Can't wait to do it again! Maybe one of these days everyone will be healthy when we hang out!! The last couple of times we've been together, sickness has spread!
