Camp Olivia

Kingston’s friend Olivia had her 7th birthday party out at the camp ground in Moss Park on the evening of February 3rd. It’s a bit of a drive out there so we thought Harbor might take a nap in the car since he had to miss it in order for us to leave on time. But first Kingston fell asleep, then Zekie, and finally Harbor. All three out for the count.

Kingston woke up as we drove into the park, but the other two we had to wake up when we got there. We stopped at the bathrooms first, which were by the playground, and then Zekie spent the next 30 minutes whining about how he wanted to go to the park. While he whined the rest of us greeted Olivia and her family and checked out how they had set up the campsite. Olivia and her sister and cousin were going to be staying the night after everyone else went home.

Once most of the guests arrived it was time for a scavenger hunt, complete with magnify glasses to really inspect what they found. At first Kingston and Zekie didn’t want to play, but after Harbor started off, they changed their minds. Jeremy took off with Harbor and Zekie and Kingston and I started looking. Kingston didn’t want to look for any of the easy items, mostly right under our feet, he wanted to look for a flower first (which there were none of). Eventually we met back up with Jeremy and the other boys and they took off while Harbor and I went exploring on our own.  He was so fun, holding the magnifying glass up to trees and leaves and logs on the ground, checking everything out, fearlessly walking deeper into the woods and through (not around) low lying tree branches. Hahaha. He kept turning around to me and saying “Come on Mommy. Come on Mommy” so I would keep following him. He was fascinated by bark and pulled a few pieces off before he found a nice big piece on the ground that he wanted to keep. Into the bag it went.

Before the boys finished collecting everything on the list it was time to eat. There were hotdogs, oranges, candy dipped pretzels, and a make your own trail mix section. After eating the kids took off for the playground for a little bit.

Then it was time for cake and presents before it got dark.

It got dark pretty fast during presents and then I started to feel a little stressed keeping track of everyone. They had smores supplies, so now there were a bunch of kids running around a fire with sharp sticks and it was dark so I couldn’t see well and Kingston was whining cause he wanted smores, but when we toasted the marshmallows he didn’t like it and wanted something different, and I was done at that point.

So we gathered everyone up and we said our goodbyes and headed home. Everyone got undressed in the laundry room once we got home and clothes went straight in the wash since we all smelled like campfire and I didn’t want that smell sticking around till I got to laundry.

Even with a few whiny moments it was still a fun party and the boys enjoyed being outside exploring with friends.

Indoor Driving

The boys have a vintage power wheel type of car that Jeremy’s Aunt Toni gave him years ago (because Jeremy’s first car was a VW bug). Jeremy repainted it yellow to go with the room and now the boys drive it around and around the house with a little help from each other.

Happy 4th Birthday Riley

We spent the day down at Red Bug Lake Park in Oviedo to celebrate Riley D’s Octonaut-themed 4th birthday party. The park had a nice new playground that featured a zip line which the boys LOVED. We had to wait in line a bunch for it but it was fun. The boys kept asking for a push so that they could be sent soaring at the end of the line. The party had really cute Octonaut decor and after some food and cake the kids set their sights on the piñata.

The boys a had a blast and didn’t want to leave. On our way home, the boys went through their goodie boxes and Kingston couldn’t wait to try on his eyepatch and play with the assortment of toys.

Happy Birthday Riley! Thanks for letting us celebrate with you.

Jeepin

The boys usually only drive their jeeps in the backyard, but since they’re becoming better drivers they wanted to hit the sidewalk and cruise by their friend Lily’s house hoping to take her out for a drive.
