Eventful weekend...

Wow, what a full weekend we had! Not only did I get to celebrate Father's Day, the kids had party upon party to go to, and they both had a blast! Isaiah enjoyed the fresh faces and all the hustle and bustle as we went from birthday party to birthday party to graduation party, all on Saturday. Makenna was beside herself trying to keep up with all the new kids she ran into. At the first birthday party we went to, there was an inflatable water slide set up, which looked like a lot of fun. Makenna was still too young to play on it, but she admired it from afar. When Enz took her inside to change her diaper, she took Kenna's sandals off, so she could at least splash around and get her feet wet (she had a pretty little dress on). Bad idea! Kenna immediately found the tub filled with water guns and splash bombs (reusable water balloons), and then acted like it was time to take a bath! She had a blast playing with the water, so Enz just stripped her down to her diaper and let her get it out of her system. She was exhausted by the time we left, but woke up for the next party.

The second party was another birthday party, this one being right around Makenna's age group. Isaiah was bright eyed, and enjoyed himself as every parent commented on his cheeks and proceeded to give them a "test squeeze!" Makenna, being the social butterfly she is, made herself at home, and entertained everyone with her dancing skills!

The final party, was a high school graduation party, and it was the wind down for the kids. The family took turns holding and passing Isaiah around. He loved all the attention, much like his sister, and didn't put up much of a fuss at all. Kenna did her thing and entertained all her cousins, aunts, uncles, and everyone else. It's like she was born to perform or something. It's not like she was singing a power ballad, or dancing the paso doble; she was just being a kid, but however she does it, it makes her entire family laugh and smile =)

On Father's Day, we took a trip to the cemetery so the kids could visit Grandpa. It was Isaiah's first time there, and once we got there, he was chatting away, almost as if he was talking to someone. I'll post a video later on, but for now, it's like he finally found his voice! We can't believe we're already at that stage with this little guy! In the afternoon, we spent time with Nonno & Nonna, celebrating Father's Day on that side. Again, Makenna had a blast doing her best to keep up with the boys! Isaiah was already exhausted by that time, and for the most part, spent time resting in the crib. What an exciting weekend for the little ones! I'm sure they've got the bags under their eyes to show for it =)
