Elmo Birthday Party

Cooper had his Elmo birthday party last night and despite the rain, the kids had a great time!! I was so worried all day long that it was going to rain. Everyone kept saying, "No, don't worry, it is not supposed to rain until Saturday!" Boy were they all wrong!! I just knew that as soon as we got down to the Riverpark and set everything up, it would start raining. Well guess what, it did!!! As soon as everything was ready to go and a couple of people got there, the rain started!! At first the kids hung out under the pavillion, but then they spotted a water hole (which later became a mud hole). That was the end of the pavillion for most of them. As you can see from some of the pictures below, they did not let a little bit of rain slow them down! Eventually the rain did stop and the kids got to play on the playgroud! All in all, I think that everyone had a good time! Thanks to all of our family and friends who help celebrate Cooper's eventful 2nd birthday party with us!

Cooper, Heidi and Meghan playing in the water hole!
Cooper's Elmo cupcake! (I think the candle was bigger than the cupcake!)

After cake the rain stopped, but the kids then learned that the mud hole was still there! (Thanks Riley and Caleb for the net and the digging tools! They were great for digging in the mud.)

Dayne got Cooper 3 wonderful tractors and they boys were testing them out to make sure that they worked!!! (Dayne, Cooper and Riley)

By the time the party was over, Cooper was soaking wet and covered in mud.
We decided to just strip him down and take him home! (FYI: His bath water was about the color of the muddy water he had been playing in!)

Even though we were late, we had the best time!!! Don't ever worry about rain- I think the children never noticed it. Dayne had a blast and thank you for having us- the park was great!! It was awesome to see everyone in your family and be with you guys, thanks again!!
Love you
