Ginormous bits of my weekend, vol 10b

Make sure you saw 10a to see the first part of the weekend! Before you roll your eyes about how.many.pictures (oh, the pictures!) I posted from this weekend, know that I fought for you. I fought my way through over 1000 photos and narrowed it down. Feel loved, cherished and honored in my lengthy posts.

This weekend was not only Russ' CD release party (This Moment by Fundamental Elements, not available on their website, amazon, and iTunes until Tuesdayish!) but it was also E-man's 4th birthday. We had a bigger gathering (albeit spontaneous) last year and have taken the 'every other year will just be Eliot +1' idea.

So, Saturday morning we picked up E's friend A. Here's the rundown of the following 5 hours of what I like to call Transportation Blitz 2010 : Starbucks, KW firehouse, Metrolink, Spiderman tattoos (What? he's his own transportation) lunch, Transportation museum, and ending with Lightening McQueen cupcakes (You win, Disney, you win. I caved.) Did I mention it rained all morning? No worries, it was a couple of 4 yr old boys, they love a good rainy field trip.






















The picture of success...

I stole another idea from Whittaker Woman for birthdays. We bought Eliot a few things, hung string (or crepe paper if that's all you could find) starting from his room to those few presents so that he has to follow the string to find his gifts. He was not.a.fan. when he woke up from his nap and walked out of his room into this web. As you can see, he got over it.






Birthday dinner was at our fav local restaurant, Amigo Joes, with the Amundsons!



Bloggees, meet Luis. He's one of E's best friends. They love each other. It's adorable.

We've spent SOOOO much time making sure E doesn't get into puddles (rain much, st. louis?) that Russ thought we should just let him embrace it.

The final moment of the birthday weekend! So far, being four is pretty awesome.
