Birthday Party

So we had Jordan's birthday party, and it's always hard because, we never know who is going to be in town and secondly we never know if the weather is going to be OK. So we were scheduled to have a birthday party for her at our local rec center at the indoor pool, she has been asking to do a pool party for the longest and we kept putting it off (she's not a great swimmer). Well this year we gave in and booked the rec center and a room for afterward so we could have cake and pizza. Well as it turned out, we decided in order to accommodate the amount of adults to have with the kids we changed the location to our local pool (it's free, and our guest passes are cheap). So that is what we did and THANK YOU GOD the weather was gorgeous, clear blue sky, warm, small breeze, just gorgeous. So we had a nice party out doors (not in my house so I didn't have to clean) and it was a lot of fun. The kids had a blast. I have a wonderful husband who got in the water with the kids, since I wasn't getting in the water.

Michael did once of his famous cakes and did a swimmer in a pool, complete with white frosting to indicate splashing. You can't tell too well from this picture but he used blue jello as the base for the water. It was cute. We also had cupcakes because every kid likes cupcakes.
For her birthday she asked for an outfit to match her American Girl doll. I'm glad she picked something casual and practical, she can wear it almost anywhere.
