A Very Merry Un-Birthday to you...

Today has been an awesome day with the Brownies. We had a play date with a dear friend and her son, who is 6 days older than Big Brownie, at JumpZone in Franklin. It was our first experience and the Brownies couldn't get enough. I had to venture up a few of the "bouncy's" so that the Brownies would know what to do. I got a little dizzy and was quite uncomfortable, but had a blast. After the JumpZone experience and a quick bite to eat, we had an awesome early afternoon visit with Daddy Brown, Pops and the all the sweet ladies at the Franklin courthouse.

Naptime was a little challenging with all the excitement of the morning and early afternoon. Little Brownie flopped around in his crib until finally playing out. However, Big Brownie was persistent about coming out of his bed to tell me such tidbits like, "Mommy, I'm out of juice", "Mama, I hear a baby crying", and "Mommy, I need to use the Big Boy Potty" Ultimately, I had to lay down with Big Brownie in order to get his nap in for the day. We all woke in a much better mood.

After having supper, I decided to make some impromptu, super simple Pumpkin Spice Muffins that a dear friend made for us this past weekend. Once Big Brownie figured out I was baking "Cupcakes", he declared it a birthday party. We had candles and we sang Happy Birthday to Everybody. Now that the sugar buzz is finally dwindling, we are hoping for an uneventful, quick bath and bedtime. Daddy Brown and Mama Brown are pretty tired. Not sure how the Brownies are like the energizer bunny, because they do keep going and going and going. It has been a great day that ended with a Very Merry Un-Birthday to YOU!!!
