Busy Birthday Bees

After AP's princess bash Friday night we got up early Saturday and drug all of our out-of-town guests around town all day for C's baseball game, AP's soccer game, C's b-day party, and then Nanna's b-day party. It was a crazy busy day, but loads of fun!

The little girls were ready to watch C's game. I'm not sure they saw any of it, though. They mostly played in little T's stroller, changed their babies' diapers, and fought over crayons.
C got a hit at a crucial point in the game. He ended up getting out at first, but advanced the runner that ended up tying us up. It was so cute because after he went back to the dugout he said "I tore it up!". He ended up getting a gameball. You can see in the picture below that the coach is about to give it to him and if you look closely you can see that C is just giggling away :)After C's game we had about thirty minutes to run home and get ready for AP's game. I got a few cute action shots, but don't let them fool you. She was definitely not feeling soccer that day.Isn't she so pretty? Cousin S was there to cheer on AP. It won't be long until she can get out there, too.AP's team played one of her good friend's team. He is the star of their team. Despite our pleas for him to go easy on us, he kept scoring goal after goal after goal. He just might be the next David Beckham.After AP's game we again rushed home, added layers of clothes, and headed downtown to C's ice skating party. C's actual birthday is tomorrow. He will be SEVEN! He chose an ice hockey cake since we would be ice skating.AP lasted about ten minutes on the ice, she can't quite balance yet. Daddy is not too steady himself, so they went down together :)C's party guests got a short lesson on tying their skates.Then they got a short lesson on the ice. They were practicing the right way to fall.C really got the hang of it after a while. He and Daddy still took a few tumbles together!Time to blow out the candles!C and K were loving on each other quite a bit...After C's party, we took our bruised up selves straight to my aunt and uncle's house for my mom's birthday party. The story behind this doll is that my uncle went to an auction and apparently the lady who had owned the house also collected dolls. My uncle paid $11 for a literal truck bed full of dolls! He thought this one looked my mom :) More on the freakiness of some of those dolls later.My mom and her sister at the end of our jam-packed day!
