Kaiden's Birthday

Today, was my friend B's sons 5th birthday. I have to admit, I wasn't feeling it. I didn't feel like going, because honestly I'm still not feeling 100% & there was a lot I had to do to get ready, like wrap presents, cook, bake....blah blah blah.

I was up at 6:00am this morning baking ziti:

Didn't come out amazing, but what can I say - I CANNOT cook. At all. Ever. I can bake, but no cooking.

The party was @ 3:00, I got there around 3:30ish, and was greeted by this beauty:

Arianna, who was attached to my hip for most of the day/night. I adore her, and well I think the feeling is mutual. As I was stumbling out the door (after one too many mojitos, thanks B!), Ari said to me:

“Please don't go yet Brandi, I wanna come home with you and Mr. Paul”
I said “Oh, really?”
She said all casually “Yeah, I’m gonna go pack a overnight bag and be right back ok? Don’t tell my mom ok?"

HA! Love this kid to pieces but she still didn’t come home with me and Mr. Paul.

So the birthday boy, wanted a "Diego" party. I think Diego is Dora's "friend", not to be confused with "Boots" (and I don't know HOW I know this).

Well, guess who showed up???

Diego!!! Ari, was SO excited! She kept saying "I wanna talk to Diego, can I hug him? Why does he dance like that? What's in his backpack? Can I touch it?" So, so cute!!

Her Brother on the other hand??

Not so sure how he felt about Diego at first, but they quickly became pals.

Oh and Spiderman showed up too. I have to honest, he scared me a little. He was wearing his Speidi suit, which...ummm, was really tight. And he was dancing and shaking around, and I was a little frieghtened, for him and the children. But we won't talk about that.

There was a lot going on, tons of people, lots of food, lots of fun though.

But I'm happy to be home, maybe the fact that there are no screaming kids, or that I had a few mojitos but either way life is good.
