Birthday Recap

Gavin's actual birthday was this past Thursday. We celebrated by taking him to McDonald's for dinner ( his choice ) and then letting Danyelle, Katelyn, and Gavin play in the play area for a little while. When we got home we sang happy birthday and had homemade cake.



This past Saturday was his big birthday bash with friends and family. We rented an inflatable water slide to keep everyone cooled off in this heat! Gavin had 3 friends from school come and that made him very happy. Here is Gavin sliding down with 2 of the boys from school. Gavin is on the far right:





Next is Gavin and cousin Ryan:


Gavin and his best buddies from school:



Everyone had a great time on the slide- even Danyelle and Alexis:


We all took a break from the slide to go in the house to open presents and have some cake.


Of course we couldn't keep the kids away from the slide for too long- so after cake everyone went back outside.

This is the view from the back of the slide where they climbed up:
The rest of the day was filled with non stop sliding fun. The company didnt come back to pick up the slide until about 730 so we had a very long day! Long enough that the grown ups put on bathing suits and fought with the kids over who was going down next!







Thanks to all of our family and friends for coming to help us celebrate Gavin's 6th birthday. We love you guys!

***PS We are leaving for vacation in a couple of hours. yay! We will be gone for the rest of the week. No worries though- I have some scheduled posts to keep you entertained while I am gone!

Have a great week everyone!

SO jealous of the waterslide! (This from the woman who just got home from a week long vacation filled with nothin' but waterslides!!!) I would have been fighting the kids for the slide, too!

Have a great vacation!
