I took Ian to his friend Reese's birthday party this afternoon at the bowling alley. Thank goodness we took the kids bowling last weekend! I think Ian's favorite part was getting to drink pop. He was so excited to come home and tell Daddy that he drank Dr. Pepper. :) The occasion was a little sad though because Lia was very upset that she was not able to go to the party. I think this was the first birthday party Ian has gone to without Lia. She did not understand why she was not invited and she cried when I told her that she was not going with us. She loves her brother so much and wants to do everything with Ian.
