Happy birthday x 36!

 Happy 36th birthday dad!  We celebrated his big day with blue rice krispies and gifts...the boys picked out a new belt and 2 new ties:)  Practical gifts for their practical dad.  He and I were able to get a night out for a birthday dinner and some drinks too.  We love you!




 36 may be close to 40, but if each year he continues to age this well...he'll be the most handsome man in history!

big top

 Conall Bear was in the circus!  His class put on an amazing show for all of us this week...there were elephants, strong men, tight rope walkers, clowns coming out of a little car, stilt walking and so much more!  It was a fantastic show!

 Walking the tight rope, more like running though!
 Taking a final bow at the end and C in front of the clown car:)

last day at the pool

 The Rivi has closed the outside pools, which means summer is over.  Although we are happy the boys are in school, we are going to miss the pool until Memorial Day.  Here's some pictures from our last day.  It was around 90 degrees, the sun was shining and the boys were loving it! 





Bye bye pool, we'll see next summer.

The little boo's go to school

This morning was the first day of school for Conall and Galvan!  Conall is in  the 4/5 class with Mrs. Conard and Galvan has Miss Patti for Mom's Day Out!  Conall was so excited and ready to go back to school...mostly to play with his buddies I think:)  Galvan went into his classroom so well, he didn't see us leave so I'm wondering when he noticed!  We're just so happy they are in such a wonderful place.  I saved my tears for the car in the parking lot:)  Here's some pics from their morning.

 
 First day of 4/5's and MDO

Conall helped Galvan hang up his backpack:) 
 He has no idea that he won't be with me today!
 
 With his best buddy Will...reading a book to start the day.

Seamus has a Mrs.!

On August 23 BC's youngest brother, Seamus, got married!  Danielle is wonderful and we're so happy to have her in our family...a new aunt for the boys!  BC was a groomsmen and Declan and Conall (along with 3 of their cousins) were ring bearers...love my guys in tuxes!  It was a great ceremony and a beautiful reception.  A special thank you to my parents who helped with the boys all weekend...we would not have been able to stay out so incredibly late with your grandparenting!  So much family was in town from the O'Rourke and Klein sides, it was awesome to catch up with them all.  We wish Seamus and Danielle a happy, happy life:)
 How about these handsome fellows?!


 Caitlin, Erin, Declan, Emmie and Conall
 The O'Rourke's (minus Galvan)
 The new Mr. & Mrs.!
 Dancing the night away!  I think Erin wants to lead!
 I have no idea how Declan still has energy...he had basketball and soccer in the morning.  And this was one of the few smiles from Galvan, Conall is obviously ready for bed!
