Old Fashion Pool Party!

I was about to plan a robotics lego party for Ryan when my friend Casey texted me about doing a joint triple birthday party. Since most of the kids would be inviting the same crew it kinda made sense...Ryan was on board so we said YES :) 

We sent out an evite and the party planning began. We kept it really simple cake, watermelon and goldfish. The kids swam the whole time anyways....and to get everyone out of the pool area at the end we had some beachball pinatas to bust at the park outside. 



We rented the whole tietze park pool out for the party! It worked out really well!




Kevin was brave as the man in charge of the pinatas - so many kids swinging the bat. So many close calls....




Everyone had a blast! We were lucky that the "cold front" came through the night before and the high was only in the 90s! Wohoo!
Birthday party success!!!

Ryan Turns SEVEN!


The birthday boy requested cheerios for his birthday breakfast...I even offered donuts but he declined.  He does not take his birthday celebrations serious enough yet. 

I think he wanted to power through eating so he could open gifts :)

Hayden and Grayson had summer camp so Ryan and I hung out at home for a little bit and for lunch we picked up his friend Cooper and headed to Chuck e Cheese!

We had our cousins over for Ryan's birthday dinner! We ate, sang happy birthday, opened presents and ate cake! 

And a cookie cake with BB8!

Happy 4th Y'all!

We started out our morning with the Lakewood Parade!

Ready to roll!

Waiting patiently for the parade to start!



It was pretty hot



The Stonewall Jackson "float"

Loved seeing our friends in the parade!


Love that basically everyone had either OurVillageJewelry or Swag Designs earrings on! Loved all the 4th of July options!!!
I am wearing these:
Check out: OurVillageJewelry for more designs!

Checking out their loot...

Ready for lunch!

We headed over to Matt's El Rancho for some Tex-Mex

Then up to Lakewood to continue out July 4th festivities!


Cotton candy for all.

Sweet girl!

And lastly, a little Martha Washington for your July4th celebration...brought to you by me....and a frozen deep eddy ;)

It was a tough decision but we decided to skip the fireworks this year - probably the last year we can get away with doing that.  

And as for our usual July 4th celebration at the Terry's - well this year was a little crazy with our beach vacation falling the week before...and then July 4th falling on a Tuesday. BUT we did make an appearance - we drove down to Cedar Creek on Sunday to hang out with everyone. Always a good time - wish we had more!

Another great holiday in the books!
