The 5th

Way back in April I volunteered to host the July get-together for my ladies group.  I knew that I wanted to do a pool party/birthday party for Maryellen (her birthday is on the 4th).  In April it seemed like the day would never come, but in the blink of an eye it was here.
Spencer started out the party with a bang.  He bit into a piece of licorice and lost his tooth.  It's been loose for months and he was thrilled to finally have it out.

We've been trying to get a group shot during every get together.

Maryellen opening her presents.

After a lot of snacking and sangria it was time for swimming.  I took this picture on my camera.  All the rest of the pictures were taking on Cynthia's waterproof camera.  We had so much fun with that thing. 
These pictures are not in chronological order because I copied them from facebook and they saved randomly. 


After swimming we had dinner. 

And then ice cream cake.  I made one of those pinterest ice cream cakes where you layer ice cream sandwiches with ice cream and then frost it with cool whip. 

Elliott was not happy that he didn't get to blow out the candles.  So he took a turn.
Then Spencer took a turn.
Then Desmond took a turn.
The party was hugely successful.  I am signed up to host October.  I need to figure out something to top this.

Fun party! I am amazed that Elliott participated so happily in the underwater pictures! He looks so happy underwater! I am sure you can definitely think of a fun party in October since you love holiday themes. :-)

Looks like fun. I'm sure (with the help of Pinterest) you can come up with something cool for October.
