Five and three

The last week of November is probably the most important time of the year for family. Usually at this time of year we are blowing up balloons, ordering cake and gearing up to celebrate double birthdays. This year we decided to do something a little different and celebrated my son's fifth and my daughter's third birthdays at the children's museum.

It was the best idea we ever had. Instead of spending time cleaning the house and cooking, we spent the morning dressing up and taking pictures at home. Here's some of the cuteness that ensued.

When we pulled in to the parking lot we were shocked to see a familiar license plate two cars a away from us. My parents, aunt an cousin surprised us and drove two hours to join the birthday celebration. They were the first people to arrive.
Soon the little ones had arrived and my daughter's messy hands theme party started. There was story telling, coloring and playing with a parachute.

The messy theme continued in the party room with cupcake decorating and finally the piece de resistance - they had Dora Birthday Cake.

As soon as her little friend left we quickly switched over to my son's dinosaur themed party. It started of with a little lesson on dinosaurs and then the children were allowed to handle real dinosaur fossils. They even got to examine fossilized dinosaur poop - ewwww.

After spending some time in the dinosaur exhibit, the kids gathered round for the birthday cake - which in my son's case was a rendition of Spiderman.

My son got some wonderful presents and some great hugs from all his friends and then his party was over.
