Okay, this is way overdue. :( I never posted pics from the birthday celebrations for Matthias (April- he turned 6!) and Benjamin (May- he turned 8!). On their actual birthdays, we just celebrated with our family- dessert, presents, games. No big fuss but fun. Here are a few pics from those two days:
Matthias requested ice cream cake & a cowboy theme:
Benjamin requested banana sundaes & he received more items for his World War II outfit (and, now he can dig to China ;):
We did gather all the extended family together in May for a bigger birthday bash for both boys at Medieval Times. We had a grand total of 20! :) We all had a lot of fun despite the fact that our niece had to go the emergency room due to her asthma. :( (We were a bit sad that the jousting wasn't a real joust but the boys did enjoy the sword fighting.) Here are some pics from that evening:
The food was surprisingly good (all except the rib) but the portions were way too big for most of the children:
Few more family pics:
And, of course, watching all that sword fighting inspired our boys:
We praise God for our two sons! They are growing up so fast!
