That was how Hubs and I woke up at 5:30 this morning. Think the boys were excited for their Thomas the Train themed birthday party? The "WHAAAHHH!" sound is my sons imitating the noise the REAL trains make as they blast the horn going through our new town. They already know trains don't say "chugga-chugga" or "choo-choo" - they know they are LOUD and startling!
Our two families gathered at a nearby park and shared a picnic together this afternoon. Despite threatening weather, the rain held off until the chicken, salads, baked beans, and three delicious cakes were eaten and all the presents were opened.
What cracks me up about toddlers is that really, they just need ONE toy for a holiday or birthday. They simply aren't interested in the clothes (that I'm THRILLED they're receiving)! Or they just need some dirt and sticks, like they found at the park!
Thank you to our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins who braved the storm clouds to celebrate our sons' lives. We love you and are grateful that you can be a part of their special day! Enjoy a few of the lovely photos taken by our amateur photographer auntie:
