Last weekend, I was invited to document James’ 6th birthday party, and it was one of those days that brings you back to your childhood. The kids had a blast and on that warm sunny day, the yard was filled with laughter, shrieking excitement and the sheer joy that only this age can have.
To say James’ mom threw a great party would be a tremendous understatement! There were all sorts of fun events and little details that made it a total blast.
There was a water balloon toss that quickly turned into an all out water balloon fight. These four images were taken in quick succession, notice the moms in the upper right running for cover! ;) Smart move, ladies!
Just as quickly as it started, it was over, and this is all that was left:
After the balloon toss was a treasure hunt, and in everyone’s treasure bag there was a little squirt gun. Guess where this is headed? The ca-RAZIEST water fight ever!! James of course as the birthday boy had a slight advantage with his super soaker.
Then we all headed to the back yard for a quick break before cake.
James didn’t think anyone was watching, but I caught him swiping a little taste as Mom lit the candles.
In true birthday fashion, he sat down with a nice slice of cake almost as big as his head and that poor cake didn’t stand a chance!
Thanks so much for letting me share your birthday, James!
