We started out by giving them balloons as soon as they woke up. They were so happy and kept hugging the balloons. In fact we had to end up hiding the balloons so we could get them to eat and get dressed and stuff.
After presents we went on to activity #1. Jeremy and I took them to the pool. It was nice to be able to leave Landon for a bit and focus on them. The pool is indoor and heated but the boys got pretty cold anyway and we didn't stay too long. They sure do love swimming though. I can't wait for the summer and our pool pass!
After presents we fed them lunch and then put them down for a nap. I'm still hardcore about naps and not even a birthday will sway me from that schedule.
Once they woke up we hurried and headed down south to a place called Monkey Bizness where they have bounce houses and slides and stuff. Unfortunately being New Years Day it was pretty crowded. It was a good thing we had extra hands to help. Hayden loved going down the big slide. Hunter not so much due to a traumatic slide experience. I will try to add the videos if I can.
There was one funny incident when the boys were playing on this little climber/slide thing and there was another little boy on it as well. We turned around and sure enough we saw Hayden hitting the kid so Jeremy ran over to stop him and tell him no. The kids mom was right there and she said to Jeremy oh it's okay it was actually this other little boy (meaning Hunter) who started it. Um. Yeah. He's ours as well. So then she felt kind of dumb cause she was blaming the whole thing on Hunter not realizing he belonged to us. When we tell her they are twins she goes on and on about how she is in awe of moms of twins because her kids are really close at 22 months apart and it is so hard and she doesn't know how we do it. I just smiled and nodded all the while thinking please don't notice my third child over there so I don't have to explain that they are all just 18 months apart.
And finally to end the day we went home and ate pizza and had donuts for dessert. It was fun to have a day where we were able to just let loose and have fun. I guess that is what it's like when you aren't always outnumbered by babies. We sure are lucky to have these little boys though. They are so funny and wild and we wouldn't want it any other way. Sure they are a handful and completely out of control but they are also so cute together sometimes and having twins really is a lot of fun.
