Okay, I know it seems like we have celebrated Finn's birthday for the past two weeks (and technically we have), but we had Finn's actual party on Thursday. It was the only time slot available at FBC Hendersonville. We chose FBC because it has a great play area and it is very reasonable.
Finn had a great time playing with his cousins and friends. They played from 6:00 to 7:00.

I love this one of Sam and Hank.
Check out this cake - probably my all-time favorite "Kake Lady" cake.
Finn requested face painting and balloons. Finn decided on a ninja turtle mask.
Finn, JT and Ethan.
Sam broke the mold and went for Batman.
At the end of the party we hurriedly opened Finn's presents. We told Finn that he was to LOVE everything - no questions asked. He explained to him that he might get something that he already has and if that happens that he is to smile, say thank you and not mention that …
On Saturday mom, Michael and I ran in the Hendersonville Christrian Cross K. It is basically a 5K run cross country style.
Gran and Pa brought Sam and Finn to cheer us on.
I don't mind saying that this was a really, really hard race. We ran partially in a grassy field and partially on a wooded path. I really thought that I would vomit.
Finn and Sam running with daddy. We made four laps around the trail. Every time we would pass the area where they were standing - they would chase after us and run with us for a while. Finn ran with us every single time. Sam was done after one try.

Even though it was really hard, my time went down by over a minute. I finished in 28:18.
After the race we went to Panera bread for breakfast.
On Thursday, Gran and Pa threw a birthday party for Finn. Since Pa would not be able to come to Finn's party at FBC Hendersonville, we wanted for him to be able to celebrate with Finn before he left town. It was a really fun night. Dave, Eve, Brother Tim, Jean, and Aunt Chelsea came.
Gran made Godzilla cupcakes.
Sam really likes Mr. Dave.
