Afterwards we had party food and had birthday cake at the park.
The boys were very lucky and got lots of lovely presents, which they loved and still love, weeks later.
The boys had their own individual cakes on their actual birthdays, but we thought it was much easier to have a combined cake for their party. I made the cake and Alex (Dad) decorated it as an Aeroplane runway cake. The boys love planes. Linc is especially obsessed with planes and often refers to any plane as "Daddy's plane."
Afterwards we hung out with Moppy, Poppy, Becc, Brise and William before they went home. The boys were lucky (and Maddi as an early b'day present) and got a trampoline from Moppy and Poppy for their birthdays. They had a great time playing with Will. The trampoline has provided hours of fun and Maddi was practically begging for one at Christmas time. We've had the sprinkler on it on hot days, and it is always used when the neighbours are on their trampoline too. Linc loves just running laps around it, but hates it when Maddi and Alex are jumping and he is being bounced around. We sure will miss spending birthdays with the family in the future. When I asked Alex who he wanted to come to his party all he wanted was his family. He often refers to his cousins as his best friends, I hope that he always calls his family his best friends.
