Birthday Bonanza November 15, 2011

Here are some pictures from our birthday bonanza this past weekend.  Eric, Andrea, and the kids came over to help celebrate all the November birthdays!

Jack, Papa, and I went to George George Park on Friday afternoon while the girls were napping.  He had a lot of fun playing in the park.  We had a good ol’ game of tag on the playground equipment, and then we took a walk down to see if there were any ducks left in the pond.

This tower is one of Jack's "safe" spots in the tag game.

Some of the few remaining trees with leaves on them!


Sure enough, ducks were still swimming in the pond.

After we got back from the park, we did birthday presents, dinner, and birthday cake with ice cream.  Bill and I got Jack a Darth Vader alarm clock/FM radio and a C3PO wristwatch.  Papa and Grandma got him a Hotwheels boat with a shark that eats the people!

We had multiple cakes, as usual… There were two layer cakes and bear cakes.  Eric and Jack got chocolate cakes with chocolate buttercream frosting, and Bill got a white cake with buttercream frosting.

Jack loved his bear cake -- he ate every crumb!

Also, on a side note, the kids got their journals over the weekend.  Jack LOVED his journal, which brought a smile to my face.  He used it immediately, and I was glad to see how much confidence he’s gained recently about his abilities.  The first journal I’d made him wasn’t nearly as big a hit with him since he didn’t want to draw or write in it.  This time, he jumped in with both feet!  Emma had fun doing swirls in her notebook, and Papa also traced her hand in it and dated it.  Julia carried hers around… but at least she left the other kids’ journals alone!

Michigan and the Great Lakes

These are my two favorite pages that Jack did over the weekend.
