Week 6: February 5-11, 2011

Whew!  What a week!  We have had company, my parents, aunt and brother visiting from Canada.  We don't get to see them very often so it's been really nice to have them here!

The biggest news this week:  AJ turned THREE!  We have been celebrating his birthday for over a week now and he is quick to tell anyone who will listen that it's his birthday.  So fun to see how he gets so excited for these things now.

We kept busy with trips to the Train Park, Zoo, Peter Piper Pizza and spent some good quality time hanging out with our peeps.

I have SO many photos.  I am adding another insert this week, but it still doesn't cover all of the pictures I want to include.  But you know what?  That's OK.  The point is, I've actually got them OFF my computer and into our book versus adding another "page to do" on my 6 page list of future scrapbooking pages.

Here's our week:

Since JT had been throwing up the night before, we had to cancel AJ's birthday party...so we spent the day out at the Train Park in Scottsdale.  It was such a fun day.  AJ was a pro at climbing all over the playground equipment....something he NEVER would've done even just a few months ago.

My little snuggle-bug getting one last hug before we had to bring Marion to the airport. 
So happy they got so much time together!

This kid thought it was HYSTERICAL to shoot himself in the face with the squirt bottle.  Little weirdo. He was soaked.  It was fantastic to see him so content with something so simple!

Would someone please tell me just how exactly it is that this kid is THREE years old already?
Love his excitement for his birthday...he's been telling everyone, and we've been celebrating for days.  I suspect Christmas this year is going to be B.I.G. news :-)

And we wonder why we don't sleep well....shouldn't this kid be in his own bed?!

Busy day today!  We spent the morning at the Phoenix Zoo....it really is just lovely this time of year.  Here is JT and Grandpa admiring the elephant.  
Later that night, J stayed home with the littles and I went out with my parents and brother to the Suns game.

Our last big hurrah for AJ's birthday...we took off to Peter Piper Pizza.  SOOO fun.  He loved playing skeeball and whack a mole.  JT even got in on the action and was pretty excited to roll balls up the ramp.  He quickly figured out that he could walk up there and throw the ball in.  Little cheater ;-)

What a great week we had.....there were many frustrating parts to it given that both boys and my Dad were under the weather.  But all in all, looking back, we have much to be grateful for and we are so blessed to have had my family down these last couple of weeks.  

Have a great week!
