More birthday fun..

Okay, I was working on a really big, deep, thought provoking post - the kind that comes with spending the first birthday with your sons, but the week is getting away from me, so I'll just post a few more pictures from Tuesday.

Here are the boys in front of their tree. Last year, when they weren't home, we decided to give them some roots in Virginia by planting a Dogwood tree for them.

Their tree being planted on their birthday in 2007.

This year, standing in front of their tree - just like I always imagined!

Like their birthday shirts!?! Again, Nonnie got them for us...they have their names (duh!) on them and a bunch of 2's all over and say "Austin is two and terrific!" and "Logan is two and terrific!"
(Katie, there are times when I see Brayden's younger pictures that I think he looks like the twins, and when I saw this picture, I thought of Brayden, again.)
"Mommy took us to the park while we were waiting for Daddy to get off of work."

"Then, we went out to eat at a very fun restaurant. They even made balloons for us."

"There were lots of kids and we even got to run around and play when some of our friends joined us."

"But we will share a little warning with all you other kids that read our blog. We heard Mommy and Daddy ask for some free birthday ice cream, which sounded really good to us. But what we got instead was about twelve men and women all dressed in black showing up out of nowhere, marching right up to the table and yelling and clapping at us very, very loudly. We were expecting ice cream, so this was incredibly scary. They might have been singing, we're not sure, it was hard to hear them over our screaming. It was all very chaotic. SO, if you ever hear your parents ask for "free ice cream" at a restaurant and it's your birthday. RUN!!"

Thanks for all the special birthday messages!! You guys are awesome!

Poor boys!! What a great story it will be to tell of your first birthday with them!!

OK, the tree put me in tears. What a great way it was to mark their day last year, and in the coming years.

Loved the shirts!!

I love the tree planting. What a great idea.

I narrowly avoided a clapping/singing birthday thing in Disney, but I have been there before when a birthday was going on so I told the waitress, "please no, no, no". Kevin just got a birthday cupcake and decorations instead.
