Patrick's Party

We had Patrick's birthday party yesterday and it was so much fun! We decided on a fire truck theme - we even had plastic fire hats courtesy of the fire department (they actually delivered them to our house!). We originally planned for an outside party but with all the rain earlier in the day, we decided to have most of it inside. It was beautiful outside by the time everyone arrived so we were still able to take advantage of the back yard! The boys' pool was popular with the kids along with blowing bubbles.

The birthday boy and Mommy!

Blowing bubbles - little kids and big kids. :)

James and the bubble mower.

The adorable fire truck cake my Mom decorated!

Unfortunately we didn't get as many pictures as I wanted so this is just a few - we'll get more from the other photographers. :) Patrick was a happy camper and Calvin thought it was all about him. The menu was pizza (Patrick's favorite!), veggies & dip, watermelon, potato chips, hummus & pita chips, carrot cake, icecream, and popsicles. Patrick doesn't really like cake so we had popsicles in addition to cake since he LOVES them! He received many fun gifts - Calvin helped him unwrap them and play with them, of course. We were so glad to have our family and friends help us celebrate!

It was fun to see pictures of the party! So glad to hear of the surgery date -- we'll be praying for good health for that.
