Happy Birthday Cuddlebug & Bearhug!!

This week was Bearhug & Cuddlebug's 7th birthday! We planned a party a local jumpy place for late afternoon, but had agreed to let them open their presents that morning (can you imagine trying to make them wait all day?). They took us at our word and tried to get us up at 6:30am, yikes! Should have seen that one coming...

We managed to hold them off for a while but then it was present time. They opened everything up, with Little Bitty following along and checking out the things they'd already opened. The first they all wanted to play with was the new Thomas trains, all three grabbed those and ran upstairs to play. A while later they came back down to check out some of their other presents.

We let them relax and play all day until it was time for the party. At the party, four of their friends came, so there were 7 kids total. All the kids had a great time running around and playing, climbing, sliding, etc. By the time playtime was over and it was time for pizza and cake, everyone was tired and ready to go eat.

It was such a great day overall. You never know sometimes how these things will go, and I'm always nervous when we plan something out of the ordinary, even if it is for a special event. Our kids are so easily overstimulated and so often the things that are fun and exciting for most kids are just overwhelming and stressful for them. We tried to keep it low-key and made sure they were familiar with the place first, but you just never know. Anytime we have a successful outing / get-together it is something to be excited about :).
