We bought this little pool for the party. It was too small but the kids didn't seem to mind. Even the big kids tried to go down that little slide.
It's nice to have friends who are willing to hold your kids. I don't think I held Cheetah the entire party.
I did not make the cake. Store bought people, store bought. It was a good week for Sam's club and Walmart, a hard week for the pocketbook. We spent a pretty penny on this thing, the food, the cakes, the presents, the water games, a folding table for outside, decorations, pinata, candy, outside games, the fireworks. Dr. J has a sort of go big attitude about holidays. I happen to love that about him!
Pinata time. I didn't get any pictures of the actual pinata swings because I was the rope holder. Little good that did. I think the sixth kid broke the thing down. You think the other kids would have been sad but when they saw the candy flying they all went running!
In the end it was a great time was had be all. We even set off fireworks at the end. Which was nice because the next month when we were in drought conditions fireworks became illegal in our city :(
