Back to their actual birthday. We jam packed their birthday with all their favorites, starting with their first donut for breakfast, and then a few presents.
After the twins woke up from the morning nap my mom came over and we took the children to Washington Park to play and have lunch. Reese and William had a blast and Henry eventually warmed up to the water. It is so fun seeing the beginnings of the relationships with one another emerge and watching them become true friends.
One thing I have learned in my nearly three years as a mom is to quit while you're ahead, which is exactly what we did. We made it home in time for afternoon naps and Tom surprised the kids by leaving work early. We treated the children to Alagamesis Ice Cream and a stroll through the toy store. Alagamesis is a special place for us; we used to take Gouda there and also took Reese for her first ice cream when she turned one. It was only fitting Henry and William got to try it as well!
Turns out, they weren't too impressed with chocolate ice cream 😀
Happy Birthday to the dynamic duo! You keep me on my toes in the most wonderful way and you are so, so loved. I hope you had the best day.
