Ok, here it goes. I’ve thought for many years about trying to keep a blog for friends and family to stay updated with our lives and I am finally attempting it! I thought this weekend would be a great time to start as it was E’s 6th birthday party. It was a very eventful weekend–Owen’s parents came into town on Friday afternoon and my parents were here as well enjoying their new condo (4 blocks from our house!) They plan to be up in Denver part-time to spend more time with us (or more accurately, the kiddos 🙂 Anyway, we started the weekend off caravaning en masse to Claire’s at the mall to get E’s ears pierced. She had the most witnessed ear piercing ever! After that we had our annual tea party downtown and as we were walking out of the restaurant I ran into 2 students who were in my Music Appreciation class in Beijing, China! We were all surprised and shocked. These students are here studying economics at UCD. We exchanged numbers and I hope to see them again soon.
Sunday was E’s party. We hired Connie the magician who did a “bird and bunny show”. She showed up with 3 live rabbits and a dove and incorporated them into her magic act. E was the star of the show and the whole thing was fantastic. Next came park playtime with hot dogs and cotton candy cupcakes. How lucky are we to have all grandparents together for this special weekend??
