I mean..I could say it ten more times.
This last weekend was just so much fun. The kind of overdue, much-needed quality time with good friends that was just refreshing and so much fun.
Friday night we unexpectedly got to hang out with the Barstads! We played cars in the street and went to eat at Rosa's and just hung out. The kids laughed and played and just had fun.
Saturday, we got to celebrate McKenzie's 1st birthday! It was a Minnie Mouse theme and Natalie did an amazing job at creating such a fun and fabulous Minnie Mouse party! We busted out Kinley's Minnie Mouse Costume from 2 Halloween's ago and it was a little tight but, amazingly fit her! We loved getting to see lots of family. We had to leave earlier than expected and I was sad about that but, I was so excited to be there.
Kinley and Aubrey were two peas in a pod as usual.
When the real Minnie mouse came out Kinley was very timid. She pretty much hates anyone in a character costume. She sat paralyzed in Josh's lap the entire time Minnie was around.
But, she did submit to one picture with Minnie as long as Ben would hold her.
As soon as we got home from McKenzie's party we jumped in the car with Kristen, Avery, Ben and Sassy for the most fun ride ever to Ella's Glitter, Sparkle & Shine 5th birthday party!
When we got to the party only Allison could go inside to set up so we spent some time running around in a field outside and pre-partying in the car. It was so fun!
The party was just amazing. There was so much to do and so many kids. They just ran and jumped around like crazy.
Everything was perfect except for one casualty. At some point, Kinley and Sassy ran off a trampoline into the block pit and collided somehow. They must have hit hard because Kinley pretty much bit through her entire tongue on one side and knocked off half her tooth on the other side. These pictures are from the next day but you get the idea. We are going to make an appt with the pediatric dentist and figure out what to do. It's a baby tooth right!? I mean, what do you do??
Kinley was so strong and I was so proud of how she handled her little injury. She was definitely in a ton of pain but, she just wanted to keep the party going. She kept saying through teary eyes, "I'm just not going to think about it" and when they let the kids back in the gym to play after singing Happy Birthday she wanted to go back again and said "I won't get hurt this time."
After the party we all went back to the Booth's for a slumber party! It really went so well! All the kids played and went to sleep and slept all night long. I was shocked at how great they did and how comfortable everyone slept. I already want to do it again!
On Sunday we made the road trip back home and took our time. We stopped at McDonalds for lunch and watched movies and had dance parties in the car. It was just so fun.
