Addi, Gigi, Andrea, Baron and I went to see The Wiggles on Friday night. It was a great show and the kids were mesmerized. Until Wags the Dog's song started and then Addi was up break dancing. Gigi hugged her new Dorothy stuffed blanket when Dorothy sang. It was a great night and we got some really great pictures.

We went to eat with Andrea and Baron and the kids on one of John's birthday gift certificates. As always it is good to see them and today was especially good because Addi had a great day at school. He was excited and I talked Andrea and Baron in to letting them come over for a few minutes to play in the back yard. Gigi loves playing with the monkey's from John's party. She saw that one was still hanging in the tree. Addi is so tall he is in the tree! But as summer goes we had to come in and watch The Wiggles because we were getting bit by mosquitos.

Well after planning his birthday party for about 2 months the big day was a success. With over 64 people and one fat dog celebrating, John had a great time. The backyard was turned into a Hawaiin Luau with lots of food, margarita's, music and decorations. The guests ate and were served from the Tiki bar by Bartender Andy. We had a game where John picked two teams, Viagra and Cialis, and they had to run down and put on clothes and come back and put the clothes on the next team member and run down for the next article of clothing. It was fun to watch and the team that ended with a "leg up" was Viagra. They received lottery tickets. John was roasted by Scott Klein reminising about high school pranks and all the food John eats. He presented John with a taco from Taco Bell, hamburger from Hardees and one from McDonalds. And of course ended his roast with a bottle of Jack Daniels remembering those before 21 Jack Daniels nights. Another special gift was one given by Johnny George, John's mentor when he DJ'd. Johnny gave John two CD's of John's radio show from the 80's and 90's. John was very touched by the cards and gifts he received by many of the friends, family and co-workers that were in attendance. All in all the night was everything John wanted. He had a great time.

I got to spend the day with Gigi today because Andrea is so busy and needed to sew. Gigi came over this morning and we played outside for a while and then in the "ducky room". Papa blew up a monkey for her and she loved it. We had to take it with us everywhere. Then it was time to go bye bye and do some girl shopping. First stop, Half Price Books to get Gigi, Addi and Molly a book. Then we stopped by Toys R Us for a Barbie buy. Before leaving I made the mistake of letting her ride the Pooh airplane and then leaving was a lot of No's. But not to bad. Then we went to eat at Chili's and she ate some chips and dippy and some chicken strips. Then it was off to Babies R Us to buy a baby shower gift for a friend. I had a wonderfully fun day as I always do when spending the day with the babies. I love you Gigi, Addi and Molly!
