we had a shaun the sheep birthday party for trey. it was definitely different from all his other birthday party's. mainly because we had more of his friends there rather than just our friends....although we a truly blessed that we are so close to all of our friends and we all have children the same age!
we decided to do an evening dinner/pool party since it is usually so hot in july. it was nice though a little overcast out (gotta luv monsoon season). party throwing is sooo not my gift but i do have to say we had a blast!!
it was simple, we didn't go broke, and most importantly trey LOVED it! i also have to give jodi credit for finding the website for the cupcakes, how cute were they!!
we had such a lovely 4th! i actually had to work the entire weekend but had monday off. so let me tell you, a day by the pool was sooooo what i needed!
david rocked this ice cream cake!! unfortunately for him, he is now the official ice cream cake maker of the family lol!~
as you can tell we had some fun with our own "fireworks". we were pretty excited, it was the first year we could have them legally :)
it was a good thing too, all the fun in the sun made the kids pooped and they were asleep even before the big show at the country club. owell, i think our own show was pretty spectacular! thanks to ian and britteny for risking your lives/limbs for our show :)
my future sis in law, whitney, was in town a few weeks ago from Waco, Texas (yes it has taken me this long to blog about it!) for a bridal shower for all her phoenix/ west coast family and friends.
it was such an adorable shower. from the colors, food, flowers and laughing with fellow ladies it was wonderful.
*thank you Abby for his AWESOME picture!* my bil and whitney are getting married in september in coeur d' alene, idaho. it is safe to say the entire family is looking forward to ending this hot summer in the pines to celebrate the joining of the lives of an amazing couple!
