Say Uncle

Saturday afternoon the Wangs celebrated Noah’s 4th birthday that was full of Angry Birds. I happened to know this, so when i was at the mall buying him some birthday socks (which i’m going to be doing from now on for everyone) i found a mini black angry bird which i added to his Nordstroms bag of socks (also another permanent gift giving tradition).

Considering that i’m going to be a real uncle next year, i figured it was time to really put in some times with the rug rats and since most of my friends have one or two it was a good introduction to dealing with a bunch of four year olds. I spent a good 30-40 minutes keeping Christian, Alexis and her brother Ryan entertained. I must have done a good job because none of the parents came looking for us or checked in to see if they were still alive.

I started off with joining them in the bounce house where i basically just jumped really high and playingly chased them around in circles. We did this for a while until the gas generator ran out of gas i had to get them all out before it all came crashing down on them. It was pretty surprising how much fun they had helping deflate the castle and all i had to do was make sure they did jump on the area that was on the cement.

Next up was something i had no idea kids now a days learn. They wanted to play zombie which is basically like tag, but i only have to walk to get them (best game ever for an adult). Had a couple tears out of the boys from getting hurt, not nothing too big which they got over pretty quickly (thankfully).

The rest of the party included a taco lady serving up beef and chicken tacos, and i guess she made pork tacos at the end but didn’t get to personally. Janelle also ordered the ice cream man to come so everyone got some ice cream for dessert after the tacos. Too bad he was such an asshole that it seemed to lower everyone’s mood. Basically he was on the clock and gave everyone attitude, unlike your normal friendly ice cream man. He just kept saying time is money.
