Party Weekend

This weekend, we had Dylan's 7th Birthday party with our families! It is so hard to believe that my boy is going to be 7 on Tuesday!

We woke up early to get the house cleaned, go shopping, and set up for the party. The kids were so excited for the fun to begin!

Our family is so much fun! Our parties are always extremely loud and chaotic, but everybody has a great time!

Dylan was thrilled with his presents. He was saving up for a dsi, and was so happy to get some gift cards, and was really excited about the Lego sets he received!

Dylan chose a Transformers theme for this party. My mom makes every birthday cake for the parties, and she was a bit stumped by this one. Dylan loved the transformers on the cake, though!

Lexie is usually surrounded by boys, so she was happy to play with her girl cousins and Great Aunt Jackie! She just may have held my aunt hostage in her room for over an hour!

Lily enjoyed being passed from guest to guest, and got plenty of attention from her cousins and friends.

And, of course, we had a special guest. No party is complete without a request for Apollo to join in the fun.

The birthday boy had a great time!

He was sad to see his cousins and friends leave, but he got to stay up late with Grant and I, and build his Lego sets!

We had so much fun with our wonderful family! We all had a party hangover today, but it was worth it!

I managed to escape for a few hours to go see Breaking Dawn with my best friend, and Dylan was delighted to cash in his gift cards and birthday money for a new dsi, case and stylus set, and 4 games! His new gadget kept him busy all day!

We had a wonderful time celebrating our baby boy's upcoming birthday! He is so excited for his big day!

  1. What a fun time! He does look so happy. I won a DSi last year off a blog, so it was Pierce's gift for Christmas. He still loves it - they don't seem to wear out!
