Sharing is caring!
Due to all of the goings on in our family, we decided to celebrate my birthday over this weekend instead. My boys [the Cook Bros.] baked me the most glittery, chocolate heart covered, delicious birthday cake ever and presented me with sweet flowers and a card. They were highly secret about everything for as long as they could be – Jensen was caving in within minutes of being home with his ingredients, but Lyoto held out longer with his, “Nothing – ahhh – nothing” response each time I asked him what he was up to.
In the afternoon we drove up to IBM to let off some steam, and some bottle rockets….
The boys really enjoyed setting them off and running in the opposite direction, yelling ridiculously. Science with Daddy.
Weekends are fun – birthdays even more so. What did you get up to?
It sounds like your weekend was a blast – literally! That looks like so much more fun that what I did. It wasn't that my weekend wasn't fun. It just didn't have rockets.
What a fun post. I haven't seen bottle rockets in a long time. This brings back memories. I spent last weekend being lazy and will be going on a train tour this coming weekend.
Oh how fun! You captured some really great pictures. My brothers used to play with bottle rockets like this.
Your boys are so cute! And happy birthday to you. I hope you got everything you wished for.
They look so happy, thank you so much for sharing this wonderful post and photos 😀
Looks like everyone had a fun day. =) My kiddos would love to shoot off rockets like that. Great pictures.
Birthdays, boys, and bottle rockets sound like an excellent combination. It looks like a whole lot of fun.
Such nice pictures and family. Thank you for sharing this occasion with us.
What an awesome birthday! My husband and I drove out to Vegas for one night. Your weekend seems like it was just a little more relaxing (but no less exciting). 🙂
It looks like you guys had a blast. My son would have loved bottle rockets when he was younger.
Oh wow, that is a fun activity for the boys of your family! My son would love that! Belated happy birthday!
Happy belated birthday, glad you and the family has some fun. You have some very cute kids there.
You’re such a cool mom!!! I would love to do this with my kids too!
That looks like so much fun! Can't wait for the weather to get a little bit nicer so we can get outside and do stuff again.
So much fun in the beautiful weather, I'm totally envious. I would love to have my birthday during this time of the year were the weather is in between states.
These will be unforgettable memories for your children. My daughters are in their 30s now and they still remember all the fun stuff their dad and I did with them when they were that age.
That bottle rocket looks like a lot of fun. Gotta cherish the birthdays and time we have with our kids.
Aw, they look like they had a ton of fun. Beautiful pictures, and happy birthday 🙂
Bottle rockets look like a lot of fun – I wanna try that with my nephew. This weekend, no fun for me. Just work.
okay, those are amazing! I need to get some for my boys!
Awwwwwwww looks like y'all had a lot of fun!!!! I haven't played with bottle rockets since I was a kiddo. Brings back memories looking at your photos 🙂
Looks like you had an awesome weekend. Belated Happy Birthday! I wish I could have seen that cake.
This looks like a blast, I didn't know they made these anymore. Another week and hopefully we can start getting outside more, the little ones are going stir crazy!
That's a cute bottle rocket! I've never seen one that's actually shaped like a rocket! It looks like y'all had a great time 🙂
Oh my stars, my kids would have a blast with the bottle rockets. And my husband as well for that matter!
That looks like soo much fun! My kid's would love that. I haven't ever seen anything like this before.
What great pictures! I've been wanting to do bottle rockets with my girls but they don't seem very interested haha! They would rather have their nails painted! Lol
