Abram recently turned 7, Lucy 5, and Daniel will soon be 3 years old.
Because... (1) their birthdays are just a total of 6 weeks apart
(2) they live 2 hours away from all of the rest of the family
(3) it's easier to have one big party than 3 smaller ones so close together
(4) and right now they are young enough not to care!
...Kyler and Kara have combined their birthday celebrations into one big hoopla of fun craziness!
As in both sets of grandparents, 6 aunts/uncles, 8 cousins-on-a-rainy-day-fun craziness!
Three of the Gray boy cousins...Krew (who is also 7), Abram, and Daniel....a lot of ornery cuteness right there!
Lucy and cousin Juni (who's also 5) were hiding from the boys, who couldn't have cared less where they were as long as they weren't bothering them.
Local favorite LaRosa's pizza for lunch!
The boys' table....
...and the girls' table + Daniel.
LOTS of presents to open! The 3 birthday kiddos were very patient, taking turns so all could "ooo & aaah" over each gift.
Lucy loves dresses, so I got her a TwirlyGirl dress that is reversible...how fun!
Abram is our little bird enthusiast, so we got him 16 different birds that all make their unique bird calls.
A replacement "Shark"...apparently the last one tried to fly and didn't survive the fall...
Daniel loves construction equipment and especially cranes, so of course we had to get him a crane!
Apparently Lucy fell in love with this dress back in the winter, but Kara said "no" and tears ensued. So of course Grandma Peggy had to come through with the special dress!
These 3 have always had a fascination with fire...like their Daddy Kyler....
Make a wish and blow 'em out!
Hard to beat an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen!
Daniel checking out the birds...
A bucket and a giant geode (handpicked from southern Indiana)...perfect gifts for Abram!
Talk about a perfect gift...just look at that expression!
The two archeologists-in-training digging out dinosaurs....
Cutest crane operator ever!
Check out those bling-bling clip-on earrings!
Hard to believe Baby Daniel will be 3 in a couple of weeks!
We adore these fun-loving children and we all had a great time at their...
