The hydrotube was open - I honestly think it was in answer to my prayers. The slide had been broken, then the water was too cold, etc., but Saturday they finally had it ready to go! All the kids had a blast on the hydrotube - they had already taken the cover off for summer though, so it was pretty cold when they hit the Cedar City wind. Here is Miles - he had pretty good balance - I couldn't do that.
Miles also figured out how to do a flip without smacking his back at the party - I couldn't figure out how to get a good picture however.
Here are some of the "party-goers". It was cold water, so a few got out of the water and spent the rest of the party squirting water at those in the pool. Miles had a great turnout - 10 out of the 13 kids we invited were there - lots better that last year (3 out of 9).
I didn't dare light candles inside so Miles "pretended" to blow out his fingers - yep, he still blew germs all over the cupcakes.
This is what you get when you get more than one 9 year old boy together - they all try to stuff the whole cupcake in their mouth. Guess who got to clean up all the crumbs - me.
I found the beach balls at the dollar store and used them as the party favors.
And I forgot to mention - Miles scored in the present department. The kids were very generous. Most of them knew how much Miles likes Legos - so he had quite a few Legos to put together. True to form, Miles had all the Legos done that night - here are most of them.
