on saturday, we had the colellas over to celebrate family and of course, a certain birthday boy. it was great weather, everyone brought a dish to share and we had a great time together.
the birthday boy. he likes cake (mostly the icing), but give him some chocolate ice cream and he's set. (just like his momma!!)
reese found the bubble gun and then found herself in a cloud of bubbles.
mikah was all about the slip n slide. girlfriend would run and run...
... and then fall. so, maybe we should call it a run n fall?
okay, maybe not. this one knows how to do it right!
the girls were content in the baby pool, pouring water on each other and out of the pool.
finally...time for cake! roman said he wanted a ninja turtle cake, so i recruited maddy (in town for the weekend from college) and she brought macee and rylee too. i think it turned out really well and i am so grateful for their help!
but, of course, we couldn't have it be completely perfect, right? see in the picture above how the bottom cupcake icing is smooth and the others are textured? yeah. because this happened. right before i was taking it outside. so, with no extra green cupcakes to spare, i scooped it up, put the icing back on and marched that sucker outside. no shame. i regret nothing. (fyi, i took it off the tray as soon as he was done blowing out the candles. i may or may not have eaten that one myself. you'll never know.)
and then, we sang.
i think she likes it...what do you think?
look at this handsome fella. i just love his smile.
are we redneck or what? trunks and drawers hanging out to dry on the palm tree. hee hee
this was really funny. gage was driving the police car around the garage and ended up running into the bushes. roman ran over and made him get out so he could fix it. so, gage is walking away all dejected and roman looks to be reprimanding him for his erratic driving.
roman even got to open a few really cool presents too!
we had a great time celebrating roman's upcoming birthday with our family. we should probably do it more often, huh?
