Birthday Weekend

On Sunday we drove out to the Quad Cities (about 2 hours away) to celebrate our nephew Noah's golden birthday (he turned 4 on the 4th of July!). Jay had only met his cousins once before, when he was about 2 months old and he was quite in shock then to see a baby close to his size! This time around, he's a few months older and he seemed to interact with his cousin Lucas a bit more (Lucas is about 3 or 4 months older than Jay).

The birthday theme was a hodge-podge of some of Noah's current favorite things - Iron Man, Thomas the Train, and Transformers. They had Iron Man masks and I couldn't resist putting one on Jay for a picture, lol...

It was held at one of the playgrounds near them and they had reserved the pavilion for the afternoon and had to chase a few LARPers (Live Action Role Players) away to a different area of the park - it was pretty awesome though, hubby and his older brother both said that if they busted out in an all out LARPing battle they were definitely going to get it on video, lol...

It got pretty hot though so we ended up stripping Jay down to just his onesie - poor kiddo was getting tired but it was too hot for him to sleep! He passed out within 10 minutes of us getting in the car! LOL...

It was nice to see everyone again, as we don't get to see hubby's older brother and his family too often since they live a few hours away, despite us keeping touch on Facebook. I hope we get to see each other at least a few times a year - it'd be nice for Jay to at least know who his cousins are, since hubby's younger brothers don't seem to be settling down anytime soon.

Jay also seemed to LOVE his spray bottle water mist fan thingy! He would lean forward and wait for me to spray it and then pull back after I sprayed it at him... and then come back for more! LOL... too funny!
