The kids are sick, but we talked to the immediate fam (who live around here) with kids and decided to go ahead with the family party we had scheduled for tonight. It was combined with cousin Noah who has a birthday soon too. The birthday kiddos seemed to have a great time (except for when James freaked out when the lights went out to sing happy bday to him–see picture below)! Thanks to Auntie Ann and Uncle Jeff for hosting!

It sure is fun having my siblings and their kids close by. We were also glad my Dad was in town and that Amber (Steimle) is close by and could come. (Thanks to Amber for taking most of the pics!)
