Happy Birthday Hubby!!!

My most favorite-est person ever
is now 27! Happy Birthday Honey! I love you!

I like the next four months for one very important reason. For the next four months John and I are the same age, and I'm not 'the older woman'. :)

Probably it wasn't the best year for me to be making food for a crowd, because to me, everything sounds disgusting and tastes like ash. Oh well! John seemed to enjoy it, and that was the point. We got the idea to have a 'pool party' earlier in the month, just joking around. Since we neither have a pool, or wanted to go to one it didn't seem likely to happen, but it WAS really hot. So we went ahead and improvised.

The kids did not need to be told twice, they were ready and willing to jump in the water. It took Kyla about 30 seconds after arriving.

We bought some awesome painters plastic, really long and put it on a slight incline. Very fun (well so I hear, I was informed that I was much too prego for slip and slides).

Emily pushed Caden down the slide, he seemed to enjoy it alright.

Kyla was a slip an' slidin maniac. She was just going and going
and going.
I love her face in this. You can see how seriously she
takes her slidin', she's got her
game face on.

The less slippery crowd. And me, I'm slaving away with the cups.

After a hard days work slidin' John takes a soak in the
whale slide tub.
Vance seems to think he should get out,
that he's hogging all the

The chow line.

The hungry, hot, masses.

The kids table was a hit. Guess we need a bigger kids table!

Happy Birthday little JOHHHHNNNNNYYYYYY!!!!

Two of the three dessert options. That creamy strawberry
pie was a first try - something printed off the internet ages ago,
and it was fortunately very delightful. Perfect for summer.
