Pictures from the Parties

First, we had a combined birthday party for the kids this year, and it was a few weeks ago.  Yea, I know I've been slacking on the cute kid pictures on here lately.  We did a joint party for both kids because we splurged getting a GIANT bouncy castle rented for the entire day!  It started early in the morning with our kids and the neighbors bouncing around, and by the end of the day....

Kelley's dad was doing face painting

Evil Genius with her main squeeze

We had 2 cakes and lots of ice cream

Mickey with our niece Kaileigh

EG with the secondary squeeze - both boyfriends at the same party?

Bigun opening presents

We had games all over the yard

seriously - Giant bouncy house

Marcus and I ended up drunk and in the bouncy house after the kids left

jumping around is a helluva workout!
We had the cornhole boards out, and other games.  Plus we had a tin tub out with waters and juice boxes for the kids.  But since it is summertime in the south, we ended up with lots of cold beer in there.  That's when I had to tell the other dads "Well Ferb, I know what we're going to do today".  And then by 5 pm after the kids had all gone home, my brother in law and I ended up cutting flips in the bouncy castle.  We talked a few of the other grownups into it too, but they didn't have the mustard to cut flips.

On the more low-key note, my birthday was this past sunday and I turned 38.  Nothing happens when you turn 38, so the whole day was pretty boring.  I don't make a big deal about my birthday, so we certainly downplayed it.
boring old man

Evil Genius got me some underwear.  She wanted to get me a bra for some reason.

Bigun went with a fluorescent running shirt.  These kids know me well.

Kelley ordered me a new Garmin 310xt, but it didn't get here yet so she wrapped up our old garmin instead. 
It was a good birthday, I certainly felt loved by my family and friends.  Thanks for all the well wishes!

First off - Kelley's dad is a great face painter!

Second off - how are you and Kelley making the same motion with your arm/hand in those photos? Was that intentional or are you two just that in sync? :)

Third off - I am glad you had a good birthday. I was expecting EG to give you something with Bieber on it, which she would then perpetually 'borrow' from you. ;)

I would have done mad flips in the bouncy castile. As a matter of fact, there is a bday party this weekend at a gymnastics place and I am gonna have soooo much fun!

Happy birthday! I am glad you are older than me because it makes me hopeful that I can still kick a** when I become your age ;)
