Tyler's Birthday Party

We had Tyler's birthday party in our backyard on August 9th. We've done parks and we did Funtastic last year, but this year we wanted to keep it close to home. And avoid Zach having to barbecue! He gets so hot and sweaty and nobody needs to see that. We decided it would be fun to get this waterslide and just let the kids go wild for a few hours...and boy did they go wild. From the looks of the kids faces in these pictures it would appear that they had a good time. Especially Aria! I don't think she stopped going down that slide from the moment she got there until the moment the party ended. She loves that thing!

Tyler's theme this year was dinosaurs. He's REALLY, REALLY into them! Safeway made a really neat (and yummy) cake and it looked spectacular...before Mommy dropped it anyways. Luckily, Grandma and Grandpa (the cake experts that they are) came over and saved the day...and Mommy's sanity. But, Tyler blew out four candles on the cake and then got excited to open his presents. He would tell you it was the BEST DAY EVER! And I sure hope it was...until next year.

We thought Tyler might be ready for a big boy bike, so that's what he got for his birthday present from Mom & Dad. And boy was he ready! He hopped right on and rode all over the house on his new bike. He's a pro already....well, minus a few spills here and there. He rode all the way to Grandma Karla's house last night!

Lucy was NOT excited for Tyler to get his bike, though. She started crying and screaming, "Mine, mine!" It was the first time she's thrown a legitimate fit. She really wanted that bike and wasn't going to relent until someone told her it was for her. And Tyler certainly wasn't going to tell her that. She told Bobo that he needed to share. Silly girl!
