This beautiful momma was turning the big 30, and being 35 weeks pregnant, her celebration options were a bit limited. So, we packed up our crew and headed to Virginia to help her celebrate!
When you're pregnant on your birthday, you have an eat all the cake you can pass. I hear there was a pre-cake, cake, which I was sorry to have missed, but check out this beauty! It was as delicious as it looks.
Meyer didn't waste a whole lot of time making himself at home in their awesome new backyard. We spent the first evening celebrating and hanging out with family.
Saturday morning, the boys took the kids to the Air and Space Museum, while the girls set up for the party.
Andy sent me this picture and I almost cried. Why in the world does Meyer look like he's 14? I can't.
This cousin love is just too much for me. Max loves him some Meyer man, and I'm pretty confident the feeling is mutual.
The boys know what's up...coming through with these pictures from their adventure...making the "mommarazi" proud!
While the boys looked convinced, Hadley is just thinking..."orange is definitely NOT the new black."
Meanwhile, the girls had everything under control for the big backyard party. They seriously have the best backyard. I'm a wee bit jelly.
I was a terrible photographer that afternoon, but they had so many sweet friends there to celebrate. It's hard being away from family, but seeing the wonderful people they are surrounded by, sure helps.
The pictures I couldn't resist snapping were of this guy...
...and his buddy, Max.
Meyer decided to take Max exploring, and if you don't believe me when I say he was thrilled...see picture below.
Let me show you over here buddy!
Just a little helping hand...
Are they not the cutest EVER?
The birthday girl was surrounded by family!
The Moskowitz Family
The Hermann Family (growing by the minute!)
Our flight didn't leave until later in the day on Sunday, so we braved the heat and walked down the road (yes, they have a zoo right down the road..lucky) to the Reston Zoo. It's a cute little zoo, perfect for toddlers and younger kids. My kids loved feeding the animals!
We were so sad to say goodbye to our sweet Max (and his mom and dad of course), but the next time we see them, they will have welcomed baby sister. This is SO exciting!
