On December 29th, Kade and Ky turned 7! They were super excited that their birthday was on a Saturday so that daddy could be home with them all day. After much deliberation, we decided not to do a friends birthday party this year. Not because we didn't want to...the boys love having a party and I love creating the invites, the decorations, games, party favors etc. But, there were some issues with the invite list, so we decided to forgo the whole thing this year, and instead, we spent the entire day playing!
Next we did a little shopping to spend some of the money the boys got for Christmas and their birthday.
Next stop: the jumping place at the mall. Kade and Ky have asked to do this several times, but we've never forked over the cash for it. But, their birthday seemed like the perfect day to splurge and let them jump to their little hearts' content. Kade was the first one to get strapped up, and he looked pretty nervous at first. But, slowly he got more comfortable, until he was doing back flip after back flip! By the time he was done, the bands holding him up were so twisted. Just before getting him down, the guy working there changed his bands to tighter ones, pulled him down far, and launched him into the air. He went higher than the tops of the support bars, and he got to do this 7 times since it was his seventh birthday! He loved it, and my cheeks hurt from smiling so much while watching him!
