Jared and Mama enjoying some reading time
And now it's time for Cousin Ethan's 4th birthday party. Here's Jared helping Uncle Chuck tie up some balloons
Ethan's party was at Caesarland in Lansing. It's a Little Caesar's, but huge, with all sorts of crawling places, video games and more

Here's Grandma helping out the boy ride a train
Cake time! Mmmmmmmmmmmm

Jared helping Ethan off the slide

And in true post-Thanksgiving fashion, here's a shot of Daddy relaxing in the recliner with his two kitty babies
