We had a birthday lunch where Jack tore through gifts from his aunt and uncle and grandparents
Baby Jacob will stop whatever he is doing to pose for pictures-- how cute is that?
Harry got a couple of things, too
After lunch, we adjourned to Pump It Up for some serious bounce house action-- it was way fun. The grownups bounced and slid down the huge slides, too. I didn't get any good pictures of Harry because he was never holding still, and his cheeks were so red they were almost magenta. The birthday boy was hesitant at first and only wanted to ride in cars, but he perked up.
He loved sitting on the blow-up throne
So did Harry
Flashing the double thumbs-up after he blew out his candle
Harry started to lose his mind from all the jumping and the sugar. He looks reasonably okay in this picture,
But here you can see I have to hold him on the freaking bench because he was starting to tweak
After all the little guests and our kids selected balloons from the bunches in the party room, Ben opted not to wrestle the rest into the car, and we left them at Pump It Up. Then, loading Harry and Jack into the car, I accidentally let Harry's balloon escape. Instant hysterical tears. Ben was a total dick to me about it, but he went back in and grabbed another balloon and POPPED IT when he shut the trunk-- ha! Balloon number 3 made it home safe and sound, but Harry was traumatized anyway.
Jack maintained his good spirits until bed time. When Ben read him his stories tonight, Jack said, "Dada, me a big boy now. Me three."
