Happy Birthday JJ!

Last weekend (Wow, has it been a week already?) we went to Red Robin with Andreena and her kids to help her daughter JJ celebrate her birthday. Can I just say that Red Robin with 2 adults and 7 kids during the weekend lunch rush is not really my idea of fun?

My Jesse, JJ, and Andreena

After lunch we headed to a nearby park so the kids could burn off the ice cream. At this particular park they have a brand new playground. There is this climbing structure that we call The Eiffel Tower because, well, it looks like it.

I finally got bored and challenged Andreena to a race to see who could climb to the top of the tower first. Well, here's a picture of Andreena at the top of the tower:

And here's a picture of me on the ground:

After she got down we walked out the fishing pier and then headed home.

One last funny before I let you go... He has a balloon that you can't see.

Sorry, it loaded sideways AGAIN!

This looks like such a fun day. I know what you mean about Red Robin at lunch time. Happy Sunday, Kathi

That is so funny. That chicken thing that is. And I have never seen a play area like that in my life. I think all the lawyers that live around here would be chomping at the bit to have something like that here. What a really cute shot of all the kids. So fun!

Didn't you and I race to the top of that last year?

did you use Free kid's meal coupons for all those kids??

Love Jonah's hair.

My kids' favorite restaurant in Red Robin. The deal is, they can't get their balloon until they eat all of their lunch. Who knew balloons were such motivators? I should keep a helium tank in the hall closet.

Gina...hey about the tie-dye stuff. I bought 2 kits plus one extra bottle of orange and we tie-dyed (with our Girl Scouts and siblings) 10 t-shirts, 9 medium canvas bags, 2 bandanas, 2 pillowcases, and still had a tiny bit left. It goes a long way!
