Birthday Parties

Whoa, it's been a while since we've posted! Sorry for the delay. We have a lot to catch you up on...

Last weekend was Jake's First Birthday party. He actually turned one 2 months ago, but the party was worth the wait! The food was so yummy. Owen and I had seconds of the cake and the yummy soft-serve ice cream. There was a balloon artist who was so talented - he could make anything you ask for.

Whoa, this guy is good!
Owen asked for "Percy"

And a monkey climbing up a coconut tree for Jake!

There was also a caricature artist who drew cartoons of Owen and me...

Happy Birthday, Jake!
Happy Birthday, Jake! Thanks Aunty Alison and Uncle Joel for inviting us.

Owen's new buddy, Braden, turned 3 over the past weekend. Owen and daddy loved the slip and slide at the party. Mommy and I just watched from the sidelines and enjoyed the yummy food. Braden's Ah Mah made lots of great Thai food.

Here's a video of the slip and slide. Daddy almost made the whole structure toppled over.

When it was time to cut the cake, Owen insisted on helping Braden with candles.

Happy Birthday, Braden!
