Birthday Season is Upon Us.

And it couldn't have come at a better time. A lot of our friends' children have birthdays this time of year. We had two this past weekend, and we have two more next weekend. This may sound like sheer torture for some folks, but for us it's great.  Jon is so busy getting ready for the Water Safari this time of year that Amery and I need to find ways to keep busy without him.  Enter birthday parties - or what I like to call "Operation Energy Burn-Off."

First we hit Connor's birthday party on Saturday at an awesome, shady little park with a cool playscape and a trackless train for all the kids:

Jon joined us later that day and we cruised up to Grammy and Grampy's pool in Lago Vista.  I don't know if he was more excited about the pool or that fact that he got a whole bag of Cheetos to himself and didn't have to share:

On Sunday we had an awesome time at Jack's party at a "jumpy place" but I didn't get any pictures because Amery wouldn't stop moving long enough for me to snap one.  On Monday we cruised around town for a bit, then headed down to San Marcos for some Water Safari necessities and a little time swimming and throwing rocks into the San Marcos River:

 Amery and I broke in the pool for the season on Monday night - a perfect end to the busy weekend.

I'm kind of in love with this video.  It's short and very sweet.
