Birthday Party - Take Two!

Last weekend, we had a whale of a time at Nathan's swim party!! I love my little squirt. :)

And... a HUGE surprise! Friday, Jon and I decided to spend the night at Gammy and Pops' house since we were having the party at their pool. That way, I could get up Saturday and get busy decorating while Nathan took his nap, etc.

Friday night, Pops kept delaying Nathan's bedtime and the doorbell rang at almost nine. I went over to answer it and found my dear, dear friends Jen, Greg, Barb and Noah standing there!! I was TOTALLY shocked! And Nathan was so excited to see his friend Noah!! :)

I'm not sure that we could have gotten everything done without their help! We decorated and baked and spent Saturday hanging out with all of Nathan's sweet friends. What a wonderful, wonderful day!

I got a few pictures of the decorations before all the guests arrived. Here's where all the snacks were! I hung pictures of each month of Nathan's life on the windows behind the table. :)

The cake!! Don't look too closely at the fondant - it was my first time working with it. :)

All of the little guests got a pail of party treats! I think we had seven little ones all together - SO FUN.

Swim party fun! We are so blessed to have such sweet friends in our lives!

Nathan's new favorite thing to do is sit on the edge of the pool and launch himself off into our arms. Scares me to death, but he LOVES it!

This time, the Nater Tot was pretty much a pro when it came to eating cake. He dove into that cake like there was no tomorrow! Ha! We had to hose him off afterward! Good thing he was in his swim suit. ;)

Yet again, Nathan was completely spoiled rotten in the gifts department. He got so many fun toys! He had help opening his presents this time too, which was just hilarious! Gammy and Pops gave him a basketball hoop - that got rave reviews from the peanut gallery. ;)

Jon and I had seen this waterwheel play set on Amazon and thought it looked so fun, especially for a kid who loves to splash so much! It was a HUGE hit this weekend!

"Thank you for my new car, Joel!!" Nathan loves his friend Joel. :)

Ali bought him an adorable little puppy and Nathan spent the rest of the afternoon "being sweet" to it.

We had such a great time! Thank you so much to everyone who made Saturday such a FABULOUS day!!

Sunday, Noah and Nathan had to try out the waterwheel toy. I think they liked it. :)

And Jen, Greg, Jon and I got to go out for another double date! I love those! We went to Chili's and then met the rest of the crew at our new favorite place - Menchie's Frozen Yogurt!

The weekend went by way too fast. We went to lunch with everyone on Monday at Johnny Rockets and then the Colorado gang had to start the drive home. I'm SO GLAD they came to visit!!

Nathan and I went to Lunch Bunch for a little bit afterward, came home and Nathan took a LONG nap. Then we went to watch Jon's softball game. Needless to say, we need a day at home today! He's still taking his morning nap and I'm trying to figure out if we have enough food in the house to not have to make a trip to the grocery store. It's not looking good. ;)

What a great weekend!
