Even more partying......

Today the Twincredible Twosome had their "real" birthday party with all of our family and friends!  We had a cooking and playing party.   First, the kids decorated their own chef's aprons, and then they made little pizzas, salad on a stick, and fruit scultpures with toothpicks.  Then,  I had planned to have all of the kids play in a wonderful enclosed, totally safe playground, so the parents could all relax and the kids could have a great time.   However, it rained all throughout most of the day and all of the playground equipment was wet and super slippery and dangerous.   So, we ended up having to play inside which wasn't as much fun, but I still hope that everyone had a good time!

Of course, we took lots of pictures!

Before the party even began, Riley grabbed a bagel and started enjoying himself!!

Ross was VERY serious about decorating his apron.  If you look closely, you will see that he has written 1-2-3-4-5 on it, and drew some monsters!!  He also wrote his name on the top of it.  Riley decorated his in about 22 seconds, declared it "all done," and went back to eating that bagel.
Twin pizza chefs...
Singing some songs while we wait for our pizza to cook.
It looks like everyone still had fun playing inside.

This cake was really cool.....half was decorated with musical notes for Ross and half was Thomas the Train for Riley!

This picture absolutely illustrates my boys' personalities perfectly.  We were singing "Happy Birthday" and Ross was lit up, smiling and excited about the music.  Riley was intently planning the most effective approach to blowing out the candles.   He's always thinking ahead.

Maybe it's a twin mom thing....but I can't get enough of seeing them blow out those candles together.

How fun! I think I'll have to look into an indoor venue for my boys' next birthday. (February in our tiny house just isn't cutting it!)

Love the apron decorating and that cake! Great idea--my boys birthday's are 9 days apart and I figure that every other year we'll celebrate separately. This is a great idea for when we celebrate with one big party!

Happy Birthday to Ross and Riley--you made some great memories!

Sounds like a lot of fun even if it was inside!
And I love the cake decorations!
