On Saturday we celebrated Chance's "half" birthday. While it is weird celebrating the half, it's much better than trying to celebrate it in between Christmas and New Year's. It's funny asking Chance "How old are you?" because the answer is still "2 years old."
But we had a great time. Summer parties are the best!
We had a triple-wide slip'n'slide, which was a big hit with the 10 boys and 1 girl in attendance. We were so blessed to have so many friends, and to play like kids for awhile. Chuck barbequed (yumm!). We had a pinata, which was busted by the girl, thank you very much! ;) Way to go, Addison!!! I think the biggest highlight of the party, though, was the water balloon fight. It was typically the kids versus the dads. Check out these shots:
And here's my favorite...
Addison has the biggest balloon of them all, while the kids are having her dad look up in the sky for a plane... It was hilarious!
Our friend Holly made the beautiful and delicious cupcakes! I'm not much of a baker, so it's extra special to me to have friends who can make such great tasting treats!! If you're interested, she's thinking of starting a business.... She also videoed us singing to Chance:

And finally, later that day, Big Daddy came to visit. He told Chance Happy Birthday in his own special way...
