Addie & Connor's Birthday Date Night

In case you didn't know, Addie and her boyfriend Connor are almost exactly a month apart. Connor's big day is April 8th and since we won't be able to drive down for his birthday party, Tara and I thought it would be fun to get the kids together the night before Addie's party so that they could exchange gifts and have a proper date. We set it all up for them.

First, the lovebirds enjoyed a nice meal together...


Addie wasn't satisfied sitting across from her dream boat, so she switched sides...


After dinner, the two read each other's heart felt cards...


And then ripped their presents open together.


Great minds definitely think alike (and shop at Target) because we each got the kids new beach toys and a pair of sunglasses! They of course had to model them for us...


After the gifts were opened, we all sang "Happy Birthday" and the kids got to blow out their very special "2" candle. Okay...well...Addie got to blow out their very special "2" candle :-)


When we told the kids that they could taste the frosting on the cake before we cut it, Nia was listening close by...


Luckily, Addie and Connor are both excellent at sharing and they invited Nia to join them.


After a few handfuls of cake and a much needed bath, the two lovebirds snuggled up in their jammies to watch a little Elmo before bed.


I don't know about you, but I would call that a perfect date!! I am so happy that Tara and I were able to get the kiddies together again. I really wish they would move back up here so that Addie and Connor wouldn't have to have a long distance relationship. But I guess from the looks of it...they are making it work just fine :-)

  4. Connor had a blast with his girlfriend last weekend. He loves him some Addie!
    You can talk to Pat about us moving back up there--you know I'd be all over that! For now, we'll just have to keep Connor and Addie's long distance relationship going so that we can be related some day :)

  5. That is hysterical! Maybe since it is planned so far in advance, the parents of the groom could help with the wedding cost, too. :)
