We woke up that morning and looked out the window apprehensively. We were not sure that the weather was going to hold out for our outdoor party. Jack and I prayed for good weather with our bedtime prayers the night before. The day started out gray. But, as you can see, it perked up in time for the cuties to get in the pool!
This is Jack's niece, Elise who is almost exactly 6 months older than he is [yeah, we're one of those families :)]. We had the wading pools that were not so deep and the bigger lounge pool. The lounge pool was not very deep for Jack's cousin, McCahill, but it was just right for the smaller cousins.
Look at that beautiful blue sky. Thank you, Lord (and I mean that quite literally).
There was fun for everyone even the littlest of our party guests.
Bounce, bounce, bounce. Michael said the bouncy castle was a little hard to bounce in but it was still fun.
Ta da...this year's grill master, Dave! It was awesome that David was actually able to be at Jack's party this year. Last year, he was terribly bummed because he had to work.
Fun fun fun fun for everyone......
Boys will be boys....there was a bit roughhousing in the pools but nobody got hurt and everybody enjoyed themselves.
A cookie and a kiss....what more does a boy need? Brock was having fun!
The Happy Family.....
Two cuties with cookie face
"What? How did the papparazzi find out I was here?"
Our yard was turned into a soupy mess.....
Still, there was more fun to be had with bubbles! [Thank you, Aunt Lisa]
and squirt guns!
The last holdout in the pool. There was a big crack of thunder and we made everybody get out. Jack stayed in as long as he possibly could. Look how nasty that water got by the end of the party. Ewwwww!
It was an awesome party. The weather held up right until the end of the party.
