Cousin Matt provided loads of fun by bringing silly string for all the kids.
But I have to question--- fun for who?? Certainly not me who is still cleaning it up even after the kids did a tremendous job of picking up after themselves. Oh well---- birthdays only come once a year or in our case just once a month. ;)
Alex had a really good time. Given the fact that lots of family came over and the house was loud and chaotic, Alex was a very good boy--- all the way around. I could see his little head spinning watching all of the excitement-- more than he has ever seen in his whole life. I can't wait for it to be his birthday.
Of course, Caleb got some preferential treatment being it was his party, getting to be the first one thrown in the pool!
Everyone enjoyed hanging out while the burgers were being made.
My sister Elena came over too. She always brings fun to the party.
John cooked up a storm!
Come time to eat---- everyone dug in!
The grapes that my Mom brought were very sweet and tasty. Andrew made sure to get some.
Here is a picture of all of the kids (minus Anna who was at a birthday party) with John and I.
On a more serious note......
Isn't Rachel and Alex adorable together? Same hair color and shirt color---- I love this picture.
John went out front to play Frisbee with the kids.
