Birthday Party!

On Sunday, we celebrated Weston's 2nd birthday. His birthday is on September 18th, but Sunday was the only day that fit everyone's schedule. It turned out to be the perfect day! Papaw and Honey were able to come for the weekend too. The only problem was the HEAT! When we found out it was going to be 95 degrees, I told Nathan we were going to need water to make it through the day. We decided to rent a water slide to help keep everyone cool. I think Weston really enjoyed his birthday party this year. He has been singing "Happy Birthday" to himself for almost a month and then asking for birthday cake when he is finished. I still can't believe he is going to be two on Thursday!

This year I made him a very long train cake.

We set up a net so we could play volleyball and badminton.

The water slide!

My best friend and her two sons came to the party.

The kids were not interested in eating hot dogs-they only ate the cake.

Weston was so serious when he opened his presents.

By the end of the day, Weston was really bossy! He demanded to go down the slide by himself! We let him do it, but someone had to catch him at the bottom.

On Sunday, Brandon told my sister that he didn't want Weston to get older. He wants him to stay little forever. Brandon, I feel the same way sometimes!


Nana finally worked up the nerve to go down the slide about an hour before it came down.

The water slide was a GREAT idea. Only our weather would warrant a water slide in September:( I also loved the cake... so creative. I can hardly believe Weston is 2 either. It seems like just yesterday we were all waiting on these babies to arrive. Happy Birthday Weston!
