happy birthday, knox!

this week, on tuesday, william's buddy, knox, is turning the big 3! we got to help him celebrate a few days early this past saturday at GO. the kids had a blast running, jumping, bouncing, sliding, hula-hooping (kind of), rope swinging, rock climbing, and getting their faces painted. william was a little hesitant at first. actually, there was music overhead, so as soon as he stepped on that springy floor the first thing he did was bust a move. (the kid can't help it. if he hears music, he has to dance. it totally justifies why we sit on the very back pew....so as not to disturb anyone while we're getting jiggy to the tune of amazing grace.) anyway, it didn't take long, and he was out there sweating with everyone else. there was something for everybody...even wes wanted in on the fun. and, if all that playing weren't enough, a monster truck cake and ice cream made a good party even better! thanks, rusty and candace, for a great time. and, i'm sure i'm not the only parent who appreciates the great night of sleep that followed! i've posted some party pics below:

I'm glad to hear that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. William gets his "getting jiggy with it" honestly...if I need to refresh your memory, let me know.
