Pool Party

Saturday we invited Coleman's friends to help celebrate his birthday with a pool party. We had a lot of fun, and great weather for the party. We were the only people at the pool for the entire party! I know Coleman had a great time, and I think his friends did too.

We decorated the cabana area in an ocean theme. Coleman loves all things ocean right now, so he was really excited to see the decorations when he arrived at the party. He had helped make the jellyfish earlier in the week, but the other decorations were a surprise that morning.

We made a submarine, the USS Coleman, out of cardboard and let each child have their picture made in it during the party.

Oddly enough, I only got two pictures of them actually swimming. This was the easiest party we have ever thrown. They showed up, swam, ate, opened gifts, and went home good and exhausted. It was perfect for a three year old!

We served pizza, goldfish, grapes, and cupcakes.

Gigi and Papack came to stay with the boys while Brent and I set up the party. Then, they kept Jonathan at home so he could finish his morning nap. When he woke up, they got him dressed and brought him down to the pool.

I think we ate cupcakes before we opened gifts, but I don't really want to rearrange all the pictures. So here are the pictures of eating the cake. This is Coleman and his sweet friend Luke while everyone was singing.

Two wild and crazy guys! Andrew and Paul had a good time together!

I'll post about his family, and final three year old, party tomorrow.
