We were very excited to have all the Wagner cousins in town for the birthday party: Chase & Kylie Wagner and Maddie & (newborn) Dallen McGough. (Extra kudos to my sister-in-law Traci, who braved the trek from Florida to here in the back of Mimi's minivan with her 22-month-old and 3-week-old.) There were fourteen children in all at the party, including the birthday boys. Both Caleb and Ethan had a great time with no meltdowns, though Caleb did get a tummy ache from too much juice toward the end and elected not to play one of the running games. And Caleb (ever the cautious one) did not want to get close enough to the fire on his birthday candles to blow them out alone, so Daddy and I helped him out. Ethan's favorite part of the night was eating cake, and Caleb's favorite part was opening presents.
