Cade celebrated his birthday for the third time this weekend. With his birthday being so close to the 4th of July, we postponed his party. But he was so full of himself seeing that he had celebrated for almost an entire month!
Cade wanted to have a swimming/fishing/campout party. We accomplished the swimming and the fishing, but the weather wasn’t going to cooperate for tent-sleeping.
I think these pictures say it all! All of these little boys, and one brave little girl found their spot along the pond, and had a blast.
I wanted so badly to get a picture of all of the kids together with fishing poles, but this is as close as I got. And just where did they think they were going?
All the way around the other side of the pond!
But Rob and Justin were serious about fishing. They just had to decide which variety of worm was the best. Cade talked me into buying every species of worm that Alachua Farm and Lumber had to offer.
Even Mrs. Sarah got in on the action. But Mr. Justin is pulling in the big one.
Oh wait….maybe not!
It looks like Kate wasn’t afraid of the mud. She hung in there with the best of the boys!
And Emory didn’t let a little mud stop him from fishing. (Y’all, isn’t he just the cutest? He is SG’s little boyfriend, so she says. It does seem to change on a daily basis, though. These two little redheads can do some damage together.)
Ben made sure he got a little dirty, too.
Benjamin and Zachariah were like little fish in the pool. I’m pretty sure these boys slept really good that night.
It was finally time for cake! Cade had specific instructions for how his cake should look. He even had to oversee the placement of the military machines.
And a word to the wise…if you are ever tempted to use black icing on a cake, BEWARE! You may end up looking like this…
