Birthday Party #1

...for the crazy month of February.

Do you see where this is going? Hold on tight, we've got jam-packed weekends coming!

Cousin Matthew held a party on Friday night at our local bounce house play arena. He turns FIVE on the 5th. Apparently, he's been sucked into this Power Ranger "cult" as other 5-year old boys have. Hence, the attire for the night, and the theme of his party. Dominic had a blast, of course. Donovan was a little "under the weather" for the night, but perked up some after getting adjusted to the surroundings.

I'm not sure why my sister-in-law trusted me with a camera (she forgot hers and only had the video camera) so I had "still photo" duties, mainly for the cake and guest-gathering area. I'm sure after she sees how crumby a photographer I am (or how crappy my camera is ... or a little of each!) that I won't ever get these duties again. Very hard to capture these active kids without blurs of superhero speed showing up on the photos.

Sydney's reaction to how OLD Matthew is!

Luckily we don't get too many of these poses for photos.

I think they purposely put black, red and blue icing on the cake so that us adults avoid it for fear of, well, looking like Matthew below!

I didn't even see Matthew open presents, I was stuck on the other side of the room, watching the girls play with the frosting... I think you got some good pics... Glad she didn't ask me to take any.

Love the pics and captions. Looking forward to next weekend.

Hopefully DJ won't feel under the weather, someone's gotta run with these girls.
