Last weekend Ben had his first Birthday Party with a large group of friends. He was so excited he could hardly contain himself. One of Ben's favorite things to do at school is splatter paint. So brave or crazy, I am not sure which, we decided to splatter paint pumpkins. Lucky for us it was a success!
We also had some fall crafts for the kids while they waited to splatter.
And boys will be boys, just look at them!
This is the after math from splatter painting in the Knight garage. Trevor did a great job and the mess stayed pretty well contained. All in all the party was a success and Ben is already planning his party for next year.
Ben got Rollerblades and all the safety gear needed from the Drekes for his Birthday. He has been practicing the last few days on the carpet and today we headed outside. He did great! Even when he fell or was losing his balance he did not freak out, he just kept on smiling.
On Saturday we drove to Des Moines for Trevor's cousin Chet's wedding. After the long 4 hour drive with the kids we got to the hotel and let them burn off some energy in the pool before getting ready for the wedding.
The wedding was outside at the Blank Park Zoo. The rain held off for most of the wedding.
Ben was so excited to see his "cousin" Mac. Mac is the son of Trevor's other cousin Chelsea so I guess that actually makes these boys 2nd cousins. They had a great time running around the zoo before the ceremony and hanging out at the reception. We wish they did not live in Wyoming.
Jameson was passed from one family to the next. He found a good place to sleep on Shannon's shoulder (Trevor's cousin from Pennsylvania).
As the night went on it was time to get the PJ's on and just like that the kids were asleep!
It was a quick trip but well worth the drive. We had a great time visiting all the Family that we don't see enough.
