My Big Guy Turns 5!

We held My Big Guy's birthday party last Saturday. It coincided with a massive heat wave that hit the tri-state area the same morning (i.e. Global Warming Scare!!, Global Warming Scare!! - because we all know weather NEVER gives us surprises).

But as you can see, the heat did nothing to dampen the spirits of my Big Guy. If you've ever met him - you'll understand when I say he's full of personality and opinions. I keep a word doc of my favorite Big Guy quotes so I can keep laughing. The best quote this month -

Greg: "If you kiss a girl frog she will turn into a princess and then you can marry her."

Big Guy: "I'm not marrying a frog!"

10 kids, 2 pools, lunch for all, clean up and presents - Greg and I were exhausted!

That looks like a fun little party! Happy Birthday James! I love the James comments too! Hillarious.

So here is the link to my on-line work out;jsessionid=OMBYQBMBCBDF1QFIBRACBHQ?lid=1348327103
You can copy and paste it, or you can just go to and search all of their on-line videos. They have lots of good ones! I just like this one, because it works out everything at once!

Dang, I wish we could be there. Your house looks soooo nice. And that looks really fun. Five seems so old, doesn't it?
Ironically, we have been having a colossal non-heatwave. It's barely warm enough to go swimming in a heated pool on most days. Weird huh? Must be global warming.

Looks like fun! Thanks for posting pics. That first picture is classic James. Wish we could have been there. Next step, kindergarten! AHH!! Also, Ethan LOVES dinosaurs too. Have you ever looked into the Imaginex ones?

Happy Birthday James! I can't believe he is 5 already. I am waiting for global warming to kick in here in Utah because it is supposed to snowing in the mountains tomorrow!!

Unfortunately its really cold here in Utah so I am very jealous. I can't wait to go swimming and lay out. I can't believe James is %, time flies. Looks like it was a great b-day and party.

I love how absolutely excited he looks in all of those pictures. Way to go super-parents. It seems like throwing a true birthday party is one of those real rites of passage.
