Our Labor Day Fiesta

Being Labor Day weekend we simply had to have some fun. Instead of a standard swim/bbq we decided to jazz things up a bit and rented this totally fun water slide and invited a few families over in celebration. The blondies were thrilled to say the least!



Pre-fiesta before the grass and mud took over. It must have been the longest morning for T&T, they asked every five minutes when the water slide would be arriving. When it did they squealed with delight!
















Tuck sampling the slide.










































Proof for later reference that we are not always lame parents. It was actually quite fun and much faster than I anticipated. I about broke me booty bone!















The chef. It was a big job grilling that many hot dogs.




























The aftermath, total destruction and one very unhappy Chris. The water was like muddy soup. When it was emptied the water went up to the house covering the entire porch with mud and grass which was almost more than Chris could bear.


I say whatever, the kids had a marvelous time and it's just a backyard!


T&T were exhausted from their super fun party and long afternoon in the sun. They were dead asleep by 6:45, that right there makes it all worth it!

The water slide looks awesome! Ok the pink curlers my Mom put those in our hair all the time lol! I hated sleeping on those dang things.... I always told my mom it hurt my head! I love that you did that though! Denims hair is so Curley I don't think I'll need those. Also Jerseys headstone is absolutly the perfect marker for the perfect princess..... Hope you are well.....things have been really rough on my end but somehow I have to pull through right! Love ya, and still need to get together, as soon as I get my head together lol:-)

This is Kari's friend Tenneal. I saw you in Costco a few weeks ago and didn't figure out it was you until I got to the car. I hope things are going as well as they could and I think about you a lot.
