Story Time with Seth...Birthday at the Park for the Twins

This gripping look of concern on Jasper's face is due to the fact that he can't have 3 cupcakes...yes, he already had 2.  More to come on that in a minute.

First stop this morning after picking up Evan and Abigail was the Gibson Library for our 2nd story time session with Seth .  It went splendidly.  

Jasper's love language is glue sticks and markers.  He walked in and grabbed a craft tray and sat down.  Of course the craft comes at the end, so I had to convince him to put it back for 15 minutes.

Our theme today was pigs.  Jasper has been saying, "oink oink" all afternoon.  We read If You Give a Pig a Pancake and Olivia. The kids loved the pop up book The Long Nosed Pig --  Lots of ooohhhs and aaaahhhhhs when the long noses popped out.  

The craft today was a cute little pig on a stick.  Jasper loved every minute of glue and marker time.

My favorite line from the Olivia book is when her mother tucks her in at night and says, "You know, you really wear me out. But I love you anyway," Olivia precociously pronounces, "I love you anyway too."

Everyone loved O'Callaghan park today. The weather is 65 and to die for.  Today was the 2nd birthday for Paige and Elyse so Kandice brought cupcakes and the kids were all in heaven.  

We sung Happy Birthday to the girls and they smiled and said "hooray".  

They were eating their cupcakes as if they were participants in the county fair pie eating contest.  They did not want to get their hands messy -- which of course just increased the amount of frosting on their faces.  Cute, cute little girls.

Our group at the park today included the Abbott's, Schroeder's, Wakumoto's, Sowell's and Christiansen's.  It was so fun to spend time with our friends.  For me and Jasper.

See you next week!
