Happy Birthday Uncle Brett-family cookout

Normally we have family functions with my hubby's family at my in-laws house. But since the Cicadas have invaded they opted to let us have my brother-in-laws birthday cookout at our house! YEAH!!!! I always love having functions at our house-but we rarely do. Grandpa surprised the boys and brought over a slip-n-slide and big tubs to fill up with water (think little mini pools). Austin was super excited, as you can see below he is enjoying his own personal pool.

Hudson checking everything out!

Hudson was not too sure about the whole water situation today.

The weather could not have been more perfect out. It was a little overcast with a nice breeze so we spent most of the day outside. Here you can see Bernie over seeing the water park.

After a little while he decided it was his turn to take a try at the slip-n-slide. He decided it was better to just lay in the middle of it any enjoy the view.

Hudson was very interested in checking everything out in the yard. He also thought it would be a good idea to taste everything. Here Brad is pulling something out of his mouth (who knows-maybe a rock, clump of dirt or mulch).

Caelex and Zoey joined in too. Here Caelex is playing with his "my Austin" as he likes to say. The kids all seemed to have too much fun.

Here are all the little guys!

After all of our out door fun we headed in for the food. YUMMY~!

After dinner came the real party. Desert time! The kids LOVED the party blowers

Hudson got tired of waiting on his cake and decided to eat the party hat. I tell you, this kid will try to eat everything.

Uncle Brett had lots of candles on his cake this year and had to get a little help from the boys. Grandma snuck in some of those trick candles. Which lead to my dining room filling with smoke.

Hudson had his own cupcake all by himself and decided to try and eat the wrapper as well.

All of the kids enjoyed an indoor picnic while eating there cake and ice cream

After cake, Grandma gave each of the kiddos a flag and lead them in a Memorial Day parade around the house.

I think we all had a great afternoon and the kids all slept good after all the playing together.
