Trey turns 2 and Griffin turns 6

I missed documenting about Treyson's and Griffin's birthdays this year.

Trey turned 2. And unfortunately we played his birthday REALLY low key and just gave him gifts that morning when he woke up. The only pictures we have are ones of Trey opening his gifts like this one:
Nothing too fancy that day. So I'll add in a few more from random days this summer....
We were lucky enough to go up to Aspen Grove again this summer and over the years this blue half-tube slide has gotten slower and slower. Good thing Trey had the best mom there, who figured out how to actually SLIDE down the slide and not have to scoot the whole way. I just turned his jacket inside out so the soft fleece lining was touching the surface and tucked his shoes inside his hood so the rubber sandals wouldn't slow him down. He LOVED that slide!!
(And, no, he didn't hit this kid at the bottom. Although it might have taught him a lesson. Good thing Trey has the fastest-running-downhill-in-the-brush-mom as well.)
Griffin had been into IRONMAN as his birthday rolled around, so naturally, I figured that's what the cake character would be.
(Griffin as self-made Ironman)
But, to my surprise, he asked for the exact cake he had last year:
This was last year:
The BOLT character over the one year of play had developed a scratched, paint-coming-off-nose disease that Griffin wanted no part of. So his conclusion was that the only way he could get another BOLT figurine was to ask for the exact same cake. I was looking forward to what I could come up with for an Ironman cake, but this was easier and this was what he wanted.

Griffin kind of tried to play it cool while opening presents and didn't show as much glee as I was expecting for all the gifts he'd asked for.

After telling him his smiles was how people knew how much he liked his gifts, we got my expected cheesy Griffin smiles.

Happy Birthday Treyson and Griffin!!!

How funny, I have three boys also. My oldest just turned 6 yesterday and the second one will be 4 next week. I know your brother Brian but not well, though maybe Kathryn knows him better? We did see him and his wife at the reunion. And, maybe you know my sister-in-law Lachelle Smith? She graduated in '98. Both my husband and I went to Westwood.
