After a weekend full of celebrating, Carrington's actual birth DAY was on Monday, October 29th. The kids actual had a teacher work day at school, so we headed down to Monkey Joes with Allie (yay for Allie spending the day with us on Carrington's birthday!!!) to meet Becky, Evan, and Drew for some bouncy FUN!!! One thing I'd like to say about Monkey Joes- that place is WILD! The kids had a blast, but could only take about an hour and a half of the madness before we split and headed across the street to Chik Fil A for a much quieter setting and some happy meals!!! After a very nice, drama-free lunch, we let the kids play outside on the playground. Everyone was having a mostly fab time, but the fact is Drew and Carrington weren't quite big enough to climb inside, so (BLESS HER) Becky would boost them up the first 3 platforms over and over again. :) She's a saint! At the end, we attempted a group pic... this looks terrible, and it kind of was (in a very hilarious sort of way), but I'm not lying when I said the kids really did have a super fun morning!!!
That afternoon we came home for naps, and then Carrington got to have her favorite dinner- macaroni and cheese and hotdogs! We opened up the gifts from Uncle Adam, Aunt Shannon, and Allie (a baby doll and all the accessories- woohoo!!!) and Miss Jean, Sydney, and Brooke (jewelry and a purse- another SCORE!!!) and called it a night. All in all, an excellent 2nd birthday DAY.
