Brody's Day

Brody's birthday festivities all started when he got this cute frog card from his Grandma Stephanie.  He was SO excited!
Then Sunday Grandma Karla made him his birthday dinner with cupcakes and ice cream.
He got clothes from his Aunt, Uncle, and cousins, a key board...
and a guitar from his Grandma Karla.  He also got a cute pair of paints but when we tried to show it to him he shoved it away to look at...
his musical birthday card that plays the chicken dance.  He LOVES those cards!
Monday March 2nd, his actual birthday, we started the day off with blue pancakes.

Then we headed down to St. George to play at Jumpin Jacks where they have all kinds of bounce houses and kids and adults can play on.
Kurt played harder than any child there.  We also went during school hours so Drew was the oldest kid, if you exclude Kurt, and we didn't have wait in line at all!
Brody was in awe looking at...
this!  He LOVED it!
This is Drew going crazy!  She was running around hitting all these characters, clothes lining and tackling them.  I found it hilarious!
These three had SO much fun which made me completely happy.  I can't wait to be able to join them next time.
After two hours of constant playing we ate at In-n-Out Burger.

We headed back to Cedar where the kids and a long nap and Kurt and I were able to get things done around the house.  Brody's birthday cake being one of them.  So this was my first time trying fondant and beside my lack of creativeness the actual marshmallow fondant itself turned out really good and yummy!  The car was supposed to be red, and it turned out salmon.  And I had made the mistake of dying the whole roll of fondant that color so all the other colors had to be a descendent from that.  I also had no idea how to carve the cake so that's why it looks like it's gotten in a couple of fender benders.  It's a good thing I have a couple of months till Drew's birthday to practice.
The good thing is that Brody loved it!  Imperfections and all.
After cake and ice cream Brody opened his present from us.  We got him this little basketball hoop.  He loves it!
I have to say that this year I was kinda depressed when I thought of Brody's birthday party.  Since we've only been here for six months we haven't made a lot of friends his age and if we were to even have one for him with just the family, we don't have a house big enough to hold everyone.  The weather right now is too iffy to have one outside so I was just kinda sad that I wouldn't be able to throw him the party that I wanted.  Thank goodness we heard of the Jumpin Jacks place.  I embedded in my head that this day was for Brody and even if it was just us we were going to have fun.  So we invited friends and family to come with us, knowing that it was on a Monday and that people were not likely to come, and if they could make it great if not we were still going and having fun.  And we did!  The whole day was fun and seeing Brody smile every minute made me melt.  I love you Brody Boy and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I can't believe Brody's 2 already. Time flies by way too fast. He looked like he had a blast and that's all that matters. I feel bad that I can't do much for my kids now that I'm super huge. Well you take care and good luck with baby.

Happy Birthday Brody!! I can't believe how much I see Drew when she was that age in him, except he is all boy!!! Oh man, I miss you guys!!! And I'm gonna have to miss you even longer.

So you know how I said we were coming. I'm so sorry - but we can't now. A couple of different things popped up that we did not expect and totally made us have to rethink it. We were especially disappointed to know we wouldn't see you guys!! We are gonna try to make it later, but this break just isn't gonna happen. I'm really sad.
