Extra Kids

We had extra kids this weekend.  We had an extra 4-year-old and an extra 7-year-old for the whole weekend, and we had 3 additional extra 7-year-olds Saturday night.  One the the seven-year-olds could not stay the whole night, so we only had a total of 6 boys (7 if you count me) spending the night Saturday.

The 2 4-year-olds did the dishes Friday night.  Not sure why they think that is so much fun.  Very weird children. (note to facebook readers:  videos don't come through the facebook import of my blog.  If you want to see the videos, you'll have to go to the actual blog post:  http://blog.ericshepard.com/2010/03/extra-kids.html)

Batman and a fireman playing LeapPad.

Here are the older goofballs that came over for Tyler's birthday party.  Clockwise starting with the birthday boy:  Genghis Khan, Mongolian Warrior, Dead Man, General Straub (not sure I am spelling that right), and General Zaharas. 

The above is a video of us exploding diet coke using mentos. This was not the time that Mongolian Warrior got completely soaked.  (don't tell his mom that we doused her kid with diet coke).

A video of the singing of the birthday song.  Cha cha cha.

A picture of cake and kids.

Fun was had by all.  It was much easier than I expected.  Sort of makes me wish we had 7 boys all the time.

By the way... in case DeadMan's and Oso #4's parents come by, here is a link to the youtube video we told you about:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKoB0MHVBvM (others can look too)


  1. Glad to hear that everyone survived.
    That batman is really something. He was at our house this weekend, too. I guess that's why they call him a super hero--he can be everywhere at once.

  2. You can't tell me that those kids ate ALL that cake.....ERIC? Maybe I'm glad there were no leftovers - the one day a year it's ok to spit all over the cake that others are going to be eating. :-)

  3. Just for the record, Mrs. Reid, I never said the kids ate all that cake. We just wanted to save it for T's actual birthday. We had some last night ... and it was great.
