Happy Birthday Gommy Petty!

My family got together this past Saturday to celebrate Gommy Petty's birthday. You know my kids enjoy a good birthday! I packed up the kids and we stayed Friday night with Grammy Pat and Papa Joe then we traveled to Dickson on Saturday. I think we all had a good time, and we got pictures to prove it!



Abby stopped to enjoy the flowers.




I had to tell her to stop enjoying the flowers so much since she kept picking them. :)



Andy had fun playing with Julia's tricycle.

Then he had fun playing Cinder Andy.

Grammy Pat had the amazing foresight to bring the water table. Everyone was drenched by the end, but no one cared. (except Isaac who had to strip down to his underwear because he couldn't handle wearing wet clothes)



Andy LOVED getting wet! If the water table needed refilling he would follow the person with the hose so he could get sprayed. Julia was the opposite, she ran as far from the hose as she could get.






Aunt Boo enjoying the shade.



Now, I don't usually pit pictures of myself in the blog, but I had to make an exception here. My new haircut is too cute! And Joanna is looking pretty ok too! :)




Grammy Pat and Grand Aunt Susie. (Aunt Susie, notice I got the name right!)

Once we finally got the kids back inside, it was time for cake! I didn't get video of us singing, but I did get the blowing out of the candles!

The adults got to enjoy the coconut cake, made by the fabulous Aunt Sandy, while the kids had cupcakes. Not just any cupcakes... Cars cupcakes! Blue and green- stain your teeth cupcakes!

Andy jumped right in! He didn't care about the wrapping, he just ate around it. Isaac started his and then would pause for dramatic effect.



Joshua had to have a green cupcake since green is his favorite color. Julia got to eat big-people cake cause she's special.



No picture of Abby. Not sure why. She ate her cupcake the way Grammy Pat eats her dinner.... s...l...o...w...l...y. Everyone else had left the table and were cleaning up by the time Abby finished her cupcake. She also finished some other food that was left on the table. So, I guess she's like her Papa Joe too. :)

Gommy's birthday party was a success! Happy birthday, Gommy!

I'm so glad you got pictures besides the water fun outside. I completely missed documenting the cake! Joshua's still talking about water play with the cousins!
