Anyway, the reason why we went was to celebrate this guy:
where's my cake?
Bo turned 1 on Friday, so they had a little hoedown birthday party for him. It is so fun to have a baby so close in age with friends. We share lots of stories and experiences. You might remember Bo from his visit to Mass in September. Both boys have grown so much since then. It is fun to watch them together.
boys in overalls!
Kyalo had a great time at the party. . .
and rolling around in the dirt. . .and chasing Moose, Bo's bulldog around.
After a sufficient time getting dirty, it was time to put two dirty boys into the bath!
when babies take baths together, it ensures a life long friendship... right, Alisa?
It was a nice little excursion for us, a nice break from schoolwork for Dexter and wonderful to reconnect with Matt and Erica. (We were only gone about 30 hours, but still it felt like much more than that - and it felt wonderful!) We are only about two hours away from them...but they're moving down to Tennessee (jerks) in July so we won't see them too much. Even so, I'm glad for the boys to have had another little bonding experience. They're at a fun stage in life...so active and engaged in everything, and mostly willing to share and do things together.
Kyalo really did love Moose so much, I'm afraid we're going to need to get a dog at some point! (I wonder if we can fake him out with a cat?!)
Happy Birthday Bo Bear! Can't wait for you & Kyalo to celebrate the next one!
