Simultaneous Parties

It's Monday night and the Sixers are having a hard time in Boston.  It's still too cold out but finally it's going to get warmer tomorrow.  Aden's math homework is getting harder.  I'm going to have to start relearning things so I can help him.  The twins were running around with the neighborhood big kids outside and can pretty much keep up with them.  Speaking of little kids, a friend from when I was little was going through some home movies he found and saw me all ready for Halloween!
Last Sunday the boys got a treat.  McDonalds!  It's happening more and more these days and I'm not thrilled.  I have not eaten fast food since the 80s.  This is a pretty recent change.  I haven't eaten anything but I had have a couple of bites.  The fries are ok.  The nuggets and hamburgers are gross!  
 Finn's dad took Aden to football.  
I took Ariel to 2 simultaneous birthday parties at Altitude.  That was convenient.  It was super crowded there.
 And she's off.
 There's Ashley.

 Climbing wall?

 Go Ariel!
 Patty Cake.

 This was Ben's party a few tables down.  
 Back to Sofia's party.

 Ariel made a friend, of course.

 I know, not the most exciting post but I don't have a lot of pictures from last week so I'm doing what I can!  I still have to share Ariel's show.

Super Strong Pinata

It's Sunday night and we are watching Disney night on American Idol.  Amy and the older two are singing along behind me.  Katie Perry just took a drink from her shoe.  Yuck.  We tried something new for dinner tonight.  We had Uber Eats deliver food from a restaurant in Yardley we like.  The food came quickly but it was almost all wrong!  Not sure how that can happen.  You check off what you want on an electronic form.  How do you mess that up?  Uber refunded our money and the restaurant re-delivered the right food.  Score I guess.  Last night we went to a beautiful and over the top Bar Mitzvah.  More on that later.

Back to last weekend.  The boys love playing outside.  

 Noah was cruising for chicks.  
 Aden's baseball game.  My dad brought him while we were at the cheerleading competition.  I made it to watch a few innings.  

 Always doing this dance.  All the kids do.  

Then I took Ariel to a birthday party at a friend's house.  
 They had an awesome backyard.  

 The kids played sports.
 Then tried to break a pinata.  I think they had to give up eventually.

Cheering Again

It's Thursday night.  I just ate a chocolate turtle from Jagielky's in Margate.  Yummy.  It was warm today.  We all went to Aden's baseball game and had a nice picnic.  We have a Bar Mitzvah this weekend.  That should be fun.  

Here are the twins in their natural habitat.  
 Last Friday night, Melissa and Mark came for dinner.
 We played outside.

 Then we ate.

 Eli really loves his cake.

Pure joy!
 Have fun boys, we are headed to the City for Ariel's cheerleading competition.
 Back to Temple University!  
 It was early.  We had to be there at 9.  
 The girls were ready!
 But we had some time to wait so some smart parent brought coloring books.

 Ok, time to head out.

 Here we go!

Great job baby!
 It was almost 3 hours till the awards ceremony.  
 We didn't wait.  Ariel was not happy, but was happy to later lean they came in first place!
