Birthday Selfie

One of my favorite things about grilling is the kids coming in and out to eagerly check on me and the food.

I know it’s partially because they’re hungry and they’re eager to eat, but they share anecdotes about what they’ve been up to inside, dance, or just chill with me between meat checks and flips.


Birthday Rainbow Road Racing

Off to the races again! For this last birthday racing video I actually merged the two clips to see how that turns out. It was great racing with so many real people in Mario Kart. I think my favorite bit is probably poor Superman and how he ended up crossing the finish line. You can sort of see it on the first half but at the very end you can see it from a different angle.


Egg Catchers

Seems better to do the back yard a little bit as a montage. Newbie was probably the MVP hunter back here, jumping up to pull one from a tree…

Climbing the swing set…

And then surveying the yard to see if she can find any more.

Thunderer was always proud of her finds too though.


Tree Talkers

They gathered at the tree because the hint was “I can see an egg from here” and their assumption was naturally that it was at the tree.

The problem is you can just barely see a bit of green on this image on the opposite side of the driveway, so none of them are looking in the right place at this very moment.

Newbie eventually spotted it and shot off to claim the egg.


Pickup Hunters

There he goes, the guy with a massive height advantage over the other hunters, and he’s leaning down to take the ground level eggs.

I’m glad we distribute the candy inside evenly after the hunt or else he’d have gotten sick from all the sugar for sure.

The others were close behind him though, he won’t get them all!

Thunderer paused to watch out for more in the tree. I enjoy this shot because there’s nothing left, but they don’t know that yet.
