So about a week before June 1st, I got a call from my Wyoming brother asking if we were busy on June 1st. When I told him ‘no’, he asked if we’d like to meet at my Mom’s to play the CANDY BAR GAME. Of course I said, yes! My brother is always so good to think of the kids.
A couple nights before the event, I get an email from my mom asking if we’d be okay if she invited her brother (our uncle) over to also celebrate his birthday. We were more than okay with that. This uncle has and is always there for us and our kids. He is just amazing. I was thankful for the chance to get to spend his big day with him.
Because Eric carpools with one of his buddy’s to work, I had to go pick him up. And because of the timing, it meant we’d be at my Mom’s for a couple hours before the party was set to start. My parents had a wedding reception to go to and I was worried we’d get locked out again, so I sent her a text to leave the door open for us. Although, it ended up not mattering because they hadn’t left yet when we got there.
My parents headed to their reception and I went about making dinner for my family. And no, I didn’t mooch off of my parents. I planned ahead and brought everything I needed from home. 😉
After dinner people started showing up and we had fun visiting.
Uh, yeah – so not what we expected. LOL!
After candy, it was time for birthday fun! Sadly, I missed my uncle actually blowing out the candles because my camera was still set on video mode, but thankfully he was being goofy and I got an ‘after’ picture anyway!
We had a great time being outside and the kids absolutely loved it. It was a great way to end an already fun evening.
