We went to Portland on September 28th to celebrate (Great) Grandma Ruddick's 80th Birthday! The party was at Aunt Kris and Uncle Jeff's house.
|Aunt Kris always has gifts for the kids. They had fun playing with bubbles out on the front deck. The rain didn't bother us...much. ;)|
|Ronan and Dylan flying their toy airplanes.|
|Grandma was so thankful to have the whole family together! She got emotional as we all sang Happy Birthday to her...it was very sweet :)|
|Our family (please ignore the red eyes!)|
|Tate warming up to Great Grandma :)|
|The original Ruddick family! It's rare to have them all together, because Aunt Kathy lives in Virginia!|
After the party we went to Ikea--and of course had to eat dinner there, too!
Yummy! (Although, I think the meatballs triggered a migraine for me. It could have also been the craziness of having three kids at Ikea and then driving home in a torrential downpour. ;( I thought my head was going to explode.)
On Sunday, September 29th, we went to Emma's 5th Birthday Party at Chuck E Cheese's! I only got a few pictures of the Birthday girl:
Such a sweetie! We love you so much, Emma!
We know you will have lots of fun being 5!
