Yesterday was a pretty yucky day for the eldest two Lewis kids. Abby was diagnosed with swine flu, and Jack spiked a pretty high fever during the afternoon, leading us to believe that he was hot on her piggy heels.
With the exception of a sore throat and a mild fever, Abby's feeling good. And Jack...well, he never missed a beat in the first place. Thank you, God!
Now for party pictures...
The birthday soiree this weekend was casual, low-key, and loads of fun. The birthday kids certainly enjoyed it (notice the large chunk of honeydew melon in Jack's hand--out of control).
It was really, really cold that morning, but just about the time the party began, the skies cleared, and it made for a gorgeous afternoon with lots of sunshine.
But what everybody really cares about is the cake, right? I'm not a big cake-eater myself, but those sweet-toothers out there (and you know who you are!) said it was delish.
There was a bit of a candle issue, though. Tandum blowing-out-of-the-candles is much harder than it might seem. Abby blew hers out on the first try, and Jack was a couple of puffs behind her...
...but as hard as he tried, Brayden just couldn't get that flame to die.
So Abby, as the eldest cousin, was quick to jump in with a little lift. As you can see, sticking your tongue out is apparently crucial to the success of an intense task.
I wonder if Bethany and I do that?
