Taylor had a wonderful 6th birthday thanks to all our wonderful friends and family. To everyone that was able to help us celebrate Taylor's big day, Thank you! To those who were not able to make it, we missed you!

Taylor had so much fun and played so hard all day long! Here are some pictures of all the fun:

It was a hit!)There she goes!Aunt Patricia and TuckerMrs. Melinda with Carter

the slide with water, 2X the fun!

We had hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, cotton candy, lemonade, pickles, pretzels, animal crackers, and of course cupcakes to eat. We played pick a pop, ring toss x 2, ping pong bounce, pin the nose on the clown, bean bag toss x 2, potato sack races, and a quarterback toss. We swang on the swings, and slid down the huge slide. We got tattooed up and we got to design loot bags that we later filled up with prizes. Taylor got so many great presents and he got to spend time with many of his good friends and his family. We had the best day! Thank you all!

***I owe a special thanks to Wade for doing so much last week to help me prepare. He built a picnic table and a swing set, planted my poor tree, and made clothes line posts for me (although they're not up yet). He was my courier, bringing tables and chairs and other odds and ends home for me (with lots of help from Uncle Cliff). Thanks Uncle Cliff! Most of all, he put up with frazzled, stressed out me. Thanks dear.

And Mom. Thanks for bringing the other sets of tables and chairs, and helping me all morning with the final touches. We wouldn't have had balloons or pin the nose on the clown without your help!

Thank you everyone who helped hold and take care of babies, so Wade and I could focus on Taylor and his day!***

Aunt Sonya - Brayden misses you!

Now that we have the groundwork laid, the next carnival party will be much easier! I hope everyone had as much fun as we did!

Thank you for coming! I swear Madilyn and Taylor are going to get married! Those pictures are cute - and he's holding your baby.

You are so right! They already argue like an old married couple! Give my Tucker a kiss for me and tell Carter and Brayden I love them too!
