A Birthday Filled Weekend

Well Maggie Rae turned 6 this week. She had her birthday party at Flame on Saturday. Ashton had the time of his life! He didn't even seem to notice that he was 4 years younger than all the other kids. Maggie Rae was so sweet! She wanted Ashton to sit next to her during the cake and she also wanted to open his present first. Oh, I almost forgot...she even let him "cut" so that he could jump on the trampoline since he wasn't very good at waiting his turn. Those two are not only cousins but best friends. It is so much more of a brother and sister relationship than just cousins. They can sure be sweet but they can also really duke it out!

Sunday was Russ' birthday. He is 35 now! That is so funny considering he still gets carded when we go out! We had a really fun day after we made it through breadfast. We took all three to IHOP (Russ'favorite) Wow...when we walked in I swear the entire place stopped and looked at us! I had all three kids dressed alike which only draws more attention but REALLY! Breakfast turned into a much longer event. By the time all the sweet old people came up and talked to us, Ashton was having a complete meltdown. I had to carry the twins out and Russ was dealing with Ashton giving his best two year old tantrum (which included rolling around on the floor while Russ was paying.) Not good! I was so embarrassed. Needless to say, it will be a long time before we all go out again without backup!
