Andrew's birthday

6 Years ago on Easter Day Andrew Ames was born(getting me out of a few last finals before graduation) To celebrate.....Saturday we went to the zoo. The kids had a good time....I was a little underwhelmed by Miller Park Zoo....and felt sorry for the animals in their tiny habitats....but whatever it takes to give Andrew a Happy Birthday! ;) Saturday night after the kids went to bed I decided to make Drew a spongebob pinata....because I think it's good for kids to get rewarded when hitting someone with a stick until their guts fall out. Anyway I'm quite proud of it and the kids were so excited to beat the life out of it. Andrew said it was a good job, but both he and Ash noticed the imperfections. I was shocked to learn that the stripes were usually a little higher on his socks and other various mistakes I made. Here it is.

Not too shabby. We had a party on Sunday with my family....grilled out...hit the pinata...had cake....and blew was great and Andrew had a happy birthday.

The twins are getting more and more active these days...with the help of my new best friends...the exersaucers. Occasionally they run into eachother and are aware of one another.

Wow, I'm so impressed with your pinata! That's awesome. And your little boys are so cute. SO cute. I wish we all lived closer so we could spend more time together!

That really was a good pinata. Pretty soon I bet Henry and Max will be playing bumber cars intentionally.
