May was an insane month.
I'm still recovering...and that's why I'm just now posting about celebrating Carter's and Gavin's birthdays.
These boys were born 2 years and 6 days apart, so I imagine we'll be doing a joint celebration for these guys a lot in the future...that is, unless they mind.
This year, they had no choice. We were leaving for Oregon (for Brandon's graduation) the day after Carter's real birthday and driving home on Gavin's, so, we didn't ask...we just planned to celebrate Carter turning 4 and Gavin turning 2 the Saturday before the craziness.
These boys LOVE ice cream, so we decided we'd have an ice cream sundae party. We even borrowed ice cream makers from my parents and made home made vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Turns out the boys don't appreciate it...so, I will not be doing that again in the near future. We enjoyed it though! :)
They even shared their cake this year...
...and blowing out the candles. (It was fairly winding that evening, so thank Granddad and Grandma Debbie for blocking the wind so the boys could have a shot at blowing out the flame.) :)
Thanks to all of the family that came to help us celebrate these boys' lives. We sure love them!
p.s. Gavin would NOT part with his lawnmower that night...I tried to park it by his bed, but he would have none of that. It had to be on his bed. Then, I heard a bit of commotions later that evening, and when I went in to check on him, he was dragging the lawnmower back onto his bed. Apparently it had fallen off, and he was putting it back where it belonged. :)
