Wesley probably will not realize the hard work that went into his wrapping, but the girls had fun and they finally got to use those Bingo dobbers Mimi J gave them.
After the wrapping paper was dry we wrapped the present and headed to Bryan. This trip is becoming increasingly harder!!! It is less than two hours, but the girls seem to always lose it before we get there. Story slept most of the way this time, but Lyric was up and ready to be there! We played the pass game for awhile and she LOVES that, but I tend to get bored with it. One person starts telling a story and then passes to the other person and they continue the story. She loves it! We finally made it to Bryan after one potty break and a bag of cookies:-)
On Saturday, we went to Wesley's patry. I did not take my camera, well actually, I did, but I didn't take it out of the car. I may try to add pictures from my mom's camera later. Wesley was too cute! He had a really good time with the cake. I think he enjoyed clapping while covered with cake or at least the adults enjoyed watching him clap while covered with cake. Yes, he was outside so it was okay that it was flying everywhere. I can't believe he is already one!
They had a pinata at the party, which was a first for my girls. We have seen pinatas before, but have never been to a party with one. We told them when it busts open there would be candy inside and they could run and get some. Lyric was so cute. The pinata was busted open and candy went flying. She walked up and got one piece and walked back to my mom, "Grammy, I got one!" She would have been completely satisfied with that one piece, but we explained you could have more than one. Aunt Kendra passed out little bags for the candy and Lyric filled it about half way up. Story on the other hand was clueless! She just stared at the candy on the ground. Kendra gave her a bag and she just kind of looked at it. I tried to help, but she showed no interest. Sydni took over and Story's bag was overflowing with candy in the end. I will have to say Sydni has been around a pinata a time or two. I wonder how long it will take my girls to get the hang of it?
We drove back to Round Rock after the party. It was a really long ride! We left Bryan about 8:30 expecting the girls to sleep on the way home, NOT! Well, Story did sleep some of the way, but not Lyric. She was up the entire time. She wanted to play the pass game, she wanted me to tell her a story, she wanted to hear a CD (and another CD and another CD and the radio and another CD). Cadence slept most of the way, but woke up about 5 minutes from home. Yes, we eventually made it.
Sunday was the Kite Festival at Zilker Park. This was our third year to attend. It was a lot of fun, as usual. We started out with the girls wanting to fly their kite.
There were tons of kites out there, but daddy tried flying it for his girls.
Cadence liked being out and seeing all of the people and kites.
Story had a great time flying the kite. I think daddy was a little nervous she may let it go, but she did awesome.
We saw quite a few Nemo kites, which was very exciting for Story. "It's Nemo, mama. Look mama it's Nemo. Mama, there's Nemo!"
The girls decided they wanted to jump in one of the Moon Walks. Okay, sure you guys can jump. But they had to jump in the Princesses. Of course, it has a huge line because it is the Princesses. Spider Man had no line, but wait I have girls, so we wait in the line. We finally get to the front get the girls shoes off and get them in. Ah, it is nice to be in the princess jumpy. There are only little girls age four and under. It was worth the wait!
While the girls were jumping Cadence was playing Peek A Boo with daddy.
After jumping Uncle Brandon and Katie joined us. We decided to find a spot and spread our blankets. I fed Cadence and Devon and the girls went to a puppet show. We all had some food (the festival wouldn't be complete without some "festival" aka: fried food) and enjoyed the kites. After awhile we decided to go fly the kite again before heading out. The girls were really into it this time:-) Daddy and Uncle Brandon were working so hard for "them".
On the walk back to the car we discovered we pushed the girls a little too far. Cadence was completely out, but the other two were really cranky! I pushed Lyric in the stroller and Daddy somehow managed to lug the other two. It was a pretty long walk, but we eventually made it.
The girls and I were so tired we were in bed asleep by 7:00 Sunday night. Story slept until 7:00 Monday, but I don't think it was enough. We got to Lyric's Spanish class this morning and she said, "Can you carry me, I too tired to walk." She may have been tired, but she was able to make it the 15 feet up the driveway and to the door.
About the time they get recovered we will be heading to Bryan again for the birth of Finley.
