Double Trouble

The McKinney's have been in town this week so we have gotten to spend lots of time with them. On Wednesday we hung out with Amelia and Melisa and Ian showed off his table manners by breaking a glass plate on the restaurant floor at lunch. That was embarassing. The funny thing is Amelia talks just as nonstop and loud as Ian so they are a good pair.

On Thursday we met the McKinney's and Curt for lunch and playtime in the park - then dinner and a birthday party for the kids at our house (they are almost exactly a year a part). Melisa and Josh brought them their own cakes and they totally loved them.


Ian taught amelia how to eat the frosting first.



Ian was way more excited about the "dozers" on the bag than he was about opening the present.


His new hat that Melisa knit for him.


Amelia opening her gift.


She liked her candle better than the cake.


Ian tried out his candle too - in the pool.

But decided that the cake was better.
Amelia and Ian had so much fun playing together and she could totally hold her own with him - which was really impressive. I'm sure we will have many many fun visits together in the future - and who knows, maybe they are meant to be...

Those pictures are so cute! And happy early birthday to Ian. :)

ps) where did you get that cool Chinese kids table? (I don't know if it's really Chinese, but I know it's not English.)

It is just an ikea kids table that I painted and a japanese mat that I found at this totally random japanese store by our house. I pick you up one if you want...

Oh my gosh, I'm so sad I missed all that. They ARE meant to be. It's so beautiful!
