Captain Adorable’s Splash Party

Captain Adorable is my only summer baby, so I am happy to do an outdoor party. I groan inwardly whenever Captain Adorable suggests an indoor venue for his birthday. This party was MONTHs and MONTHs in the making. Captain Adorable loved to randomly start talking about his plans for his birthday party. He changed the theme of the┬áparty and kept adding things and people. He wanted to make sure we invited a friend for each of his sisters. At one point he wanted a Ninja Turtle Mario party with four hours of playing video games, an hour of a playdoh ball war, and then running to the local pool and swimming for another three hours. I explained┬áto him that birthday parties do not last that long. So, we brainstormed, we were going to go to a local park and do water balloons, but then we decided to just do it at home in our backyard because the access to water was easier. He was very excited about his splash party and he said it was going to be so much cooler than his friend’s parties.

We had a couple of splashing games and we had a bunch of water balloons.

I tried to organize a water balloon toss so that the balloons didn’t disappear immediately.

Then Handsome Husband came out and dared the kids to throw water balloons at him.

Handsome Husband may have been questioning the wisdom of making himself the party target at this point.

I was so glad Handsome Husband came home from work on his lunch break, he really helped to make the party run smoothly.

The kids loved trying to pass the water, I was pretty impressed that they were able to fill the cup at the end of the line.

Then we had cupcakes made by Baby Dragon. Captain Adorable wanted cupcakes, cookies, donuts and watermelon (for me). He had a lot of fun planning this party.
