Almost all the kids, spouses, and grandkids were present for a triple birthday party at our house this weekend. We greatly missed the Californians who couldn’t make the trip.
The weather was perfect for filling the pool and water balloons.
Even after he was dried off and dressed
JD was ready to bring out the big guns for the big guys.
We had our own version of Olympic volleyball and badminton.
Going for the gold. No holding back here.
There were also skits.
And what's a party without dancing.
The complete lack of breezes made it possible to
light the candles outside—first for the ten-year-old.
Then a pink cake and singing for the eleven-year-old.
The big numbers were brought out for Grandpa.
Then we cut the cake…
…and brought out the hand-cranked homemade ice cream.
