Cole's First Sleepover

Wow! What a milestone! Cole had his first sleepover tonight. His friend (and my best friend's son) Andrew came home with us after the Pirate Party so he could escape his sister's slumber party happening at his house! Both boys had looked so forward to it for days and they did great with it! I wasn't sure how it would go because they're still so little, but luckily he felt really comfortable here.

Cole was thrilled to discover a big "drawer" under his bed. We'd never needed it before, so he didn't know it pulled out to make another sleeping place. Of course, the idea was for Andrew to sleep down there and Cole to sleep up on his regular mattress...but they needed to be "together" so they both squeezed in to the lower part.

They had a lot of trouble going to sleep because they were so excited, but after lots of drinks of water and "reading" several books to each other, I finally got to take this picture of them fast asleep. I'm so thankful the flash didn't wake them up!

Moms and Mateys

The boys and I attended the annual Moms and Mateys (Mother/Son) Pirate Party. We had fun dragging out all the pirate gear from last year and Cole's 3rd birthday and even adding to it a bit. The moms didn't go as "all out" this year as we did last year. But we did still have our "pre-party" on the Mesa Rosa patio to drag out the fun!
Here are some pictures before we left the house...when the boys still liked their accessories! They lost the patch and earrings fairly quickly. Cole said the patch made his eyeball sweat!

Cole's friend Andrew joined us because there was an 8-year old girl slumber party going on at his house...yuck!

My little mateys...

Travis' most menacing pirate snarl!

Here's a couple of pictures before church on Sunday...
