There was a bounce house (what a great way to keep a bunch of 3 to 7 year olds occupied...and expend some of their energy)
There was a pinata.
Heather and her mom made a fantastic Mystery Machine cake.
When we got home, several hours later, Devin said, "Mommy I had SO MUCH FUN at Pierce's birthday party!" Now that's what I call a successful party!
Here are Erick and Devin having a little fun in the bounce house.

Friday night Devin stayed with Grandma and Papa so that Erick and I could go on a date. We kept it low key, running errands and going to Chunky's to see Love Happens. It was a sweet girly movie, and lucky for me my hubby is so good about watching those! Devin, of course had fun spending the night at Grandma's!
Saturday morning I had a hair appointment and afterward I met up with Devin and my Mom. We went to see my Dad and his band play at the Auburn Duck Race. It was a lot of fun to watch them play, especially since Devin has never seen the whole band in action, just my Dad playing his bass at home. Devin was really grooving to the music!
There was a big (plastic) duck race, clowns making balloons for the kids, face painting, food, and more!
On Sunday Erick, Devin, and I went apple picking. The apples are great and its nice and early in the season so they aren't picked over yet. We found lots and quick!
After that we went to visit Abuela, Grandpa, Uncle Brian and Aunt Courtney. We brought them some of our freshly picked apples. We had a lot of fun visiting and the 3 of us had a new experience~ the Wii! We tried a few of Brian's games. Devin really liked the Mario Cart and the baseball game. We laughed a lot!
You know I made Apple Crisp on Sunday evening.....YUM!

Erick and I happened to think that was possibly the most humorous thing we had heard all week-end! Everyone was calling Michael "Obama" for the rest of the day. I wish we had gotten that on video!
On Friday Devin got the "regular" flu shot. Well, the way that he cried you might have thought someone was torturing him. He is usually pretty good with his shots and honestly, hasn't cried for the last several rounds of shots. Not this time! When he heard that my mother was also getting a flu shot he told her, "Grandma, you're gonna CRY when you get your flu shot!"
One of Devin's little school friends is Gabby. Yesterday I heard all about how "beautiful" Gabby is and how "beautiful" her dress was that she was wearing yesterday. Yes, he also told her, and several other girls how beautiful they were. Oye! Gabby's mother works at Devin's school and this morning Devin asked her mother, Miss "D", "Is it alright if I marry Gabby?"
Hahaha! Miss D was so impressed with his manners that she said she would love for Gabby to marry a polite boy like him.
Am I in trouble or what?!?!?!

Devin also tells us, "I'm learning to read!"
As Devin's mother and a teacher I am so excited about Devin's enthusiasm for learning and school!

What do you think???? Pretty amazing, huh?
Here is another one. I took this picture of Devin's brownie hand prints early in the summer. Remember this?
Here it is again, after being edited with picnik:
See the difference? The blue in his shirt is brighter, his face is more vibrant, even the chocolate looks yummier (haha)!
*Sorry for the varied sizes in pictures!
*Insert the only day we did anything this week-end!*
Since Erick was working on Saturday, Devin and I headed over to my parents' house for a visit. We had a good time, as usual, but the highlight of the day was definitely watching Mark, Devin, and my Dad wash the cars. Although, I'm not sure what was washed more~ Devin or the cars??
There was even a circus act!
Oh, the cars *DID* get washed!As my Mom and I watched all this from the front door, we were laughing pretty hard. Especially when Devin asked the mailman if he wanted to bring his truck over to be washed! (The mailman knows Erick, and when they got back to the office he told Erick the story and how cute and funny his little blond son is!)
Saturday when Erick got home, he wasn't feeling too well but we had received a call that his parents would be stopping by for a visit. WELL, they surprised us by bringing Erick's brother and his wife! It was a great surprise since we hadn't seen them in almost a year. Devin had been asking about them a lot lately and I think he was starting to lose his memory of them. It was a wonderful visit! I wish I had taken some pictures!
*End of the only fun day.*
Sunday when Erick woke up he felt like he his head was going to explode. Yep, he was definitely sick! He spent the majority of the day sleeping while I entertained Devin. Monday Erick was feeling considerably better so he let me sleep in. We all took it easy and hung around the house. We played outside a little, inside a lot, and watched some T.V.
Now back to work......
