Party, Party, Party

I am sure that is all you think Caden and I do on the weekends! We do attend a lot of birthday parties, I hold them high on a priority list. All of our little friends will be growing up just as fast as Caden is, therefore, I don't want to us miss the opportunities to celebrate with our favorite buddies. Not that if we don't make it, you aren't a favorite. We only miss if we had previous plans for something important. Its ok if you dont feel the way we do about these celebrations, it does keep us going non stop. But one day they will become few and far between, so we are taking part as often as we can!

This past Saturday, we drove back from Prattville to make it in time for two birthday parties and a back to school party. I wasn't able to make another friend's baby shower as I had hoped to fit in as well. First up was John Morgan's 2nd birthday party. It was at our church and Mickey Mouse themed, we all know I am a little Mickey crazy right now!

They had a water balloon toss

When they told the kids to put on their flip flops, little Emma said, "Well, I have leopard shoes!" Haha I love her! So here she is with her leopard shoes, trying to squash a balloon!

Little Mickey cupcakes!

Our next party was Katlyn's, a girl from Caden's first grade class. I love her, probably because she reminds me of myself in elementary school! Her party was at Scoops of Fun, a game room and ice cream parlor in our town. Really funny story about this party...last year Caden began to like this little girl, Amanda. She is so cute and sweet, but she doesn't talk very much. Like, at all! I couldn't believe that my wild boy was all about a shy little girl! Well I never push him to like anyone, but he talked about her non stop all summer and even got her that pink ring I told you about in this post. When we pulled up, he spotted Amanada getting out of her car. There my son was squatting in the seat, hoping she couldn't see him. I laughed a little and said, "Caden, you have to give her the ring!" He had been saying he was going to give it to her at school, but I knew that wouldn't happen or be allowed. He finally got out of the car, only to hide in the first room he saw. He got better after a while, but never got the courage to talk to her. It makes me wonder if he has ever talked to her at all! He made me give her the ring, which may have been better since I was able to explain to her aunt a little! I am just so shocked at his behavior with this! It is so unlike him, but hilarious at the same time!!

This is Caden, fake smiling with Katlyn. Isnt she the cutest ever?! They are sweet friends, I think he was just all torn up over Amanada being there!!

After singing Happy Birthday, her daddy got her with silly string!

That evening, we went to a Back to School swimming party with friends from church. The kids were as wild as ever and didnt let any rain slow them down! (It didnt thunder or lightning) We, moms just sat around and chatted while the dads cooked up our hot dogs and splashed around with the kids. I am glad we had the opportunity for the kids to all play together outside of church before school started. Thank you Trey and Kaylan for having us all over!

Being boys!

Being that Saturday was non stop, Sunday we went straight home after church and I did nothing but clean and organize. No way was I beginning a new school year in the mess I had! We got out school clothes and everything else ready for the morning to come and start another fun, and busy year!

I just wanted to let you know, that you are a really great mother! There are so many moms out there that just put their kids (and their activities) on the back burner so that they can do what they want! You always put Caden first and I admire you for that! Hopefully one day I can try to be a great positive mom like you!
Hope all is well!
