OK, this is going to be a long one because I finally downloaded all my pictures and got them edited and titled (and ordered about six months worth of prints because Sony had a sale!).
So I will start with the Birthday party at Chuck E Cheese last Friday night. It really seems like as long time ago. Less than a week though. The boys wanted to do something different and we have been having at-home birthday parties for years. They opted for Chuck E Cheese. They do a pretty good party there and for boys it's pretty much ideal because they can really play hard and be as silly as they want! Brendan didn't care for the whole dancing/singing/meet the mouse routine. He is a lot like his mother. Paul was hamming it up all night. He really does enjoy a good party.
Our guests were: The Beyers, Callum and Aiden, our friends from TORCH, and Kevin Hoppel.
The Hauf boys were sick and we really missed them. So this is how the youngest Merkel boys spent their birthdays this year.
