This was such a cold day! But I insisted we go to our local Mardi Gras parade and I'm glad we did. The kids had so much fun and its always fun to see them get so excited. Joe and I of course get in the moment and try to get as much 'cool' stuff as we can and then once we get home we wonder where in the world are we going to put all this crap? At the beginning Kaiden was getting so frustrated that every float wasn't throwing him something. He was yelling "Throw me something!!" which is totally fine but you could hear in his voice it was out of anger and not excitement. It was pretty funny and luckily he finally calmed down and just enjoyed himself.
We signed Kalli up for gymnastics and boy does she love it! She has a hard time following directions (didn't see that one coming!) and listening to what her teachers say b/c she wants to do whatever she wants of course! But it is so much fun to see her each week.
Way to stay hydrated! She LOVES the trampoline! But instead of jumping she just runs all the way across and usually goes back to do it again (even though she's been told multiple times not too!) On the beam. (for some reason my flash hasn't been working too well.)
Still working on that balance! This was after class.

Kaiden turned the BiG 5!! He was so very excited and was happy to share the day with his friends at school. I dropped a King Cake off at school for him to share with his friends and when I picked him up he had a cool birthday hat on that his teacher gave him. Needless to say he was all smiles! Joe was able to leave school early enough to beat work traffic on a Friday and we headed to Chuck-E-Cheese for some family fun and greasy pizza. The kids had so much fun running around to all the new rides and games in our newly renovated CEC. After being there for possibly hours we headed to my mom's for another King Cake and to open a few presents. In all it was a great day and Kaiden was still able to look forward to a joined b-day party with his little sis in a few weeks.
Kaiden loves playing air hockey on my phone and was even more excited to play against his dad.
