Happy Birthday Riley!

Riley's annual pool party is one of the highlights of our summer! Gotta love summer birthday parties in the country! Here is a shot of the goofy birthday girl herself. Happy 10th, Riles!

Andy wore his new Microsoft hat.
Mayah is a little waterbaby and was straight into the pool.
While Elisabeth watched longingly from the ladder. I have a confession to make. For the second time in as many days, I didn't pack beach gear for the kids. They never show any desire to go in this pool so I didn't think it was necessary.

Luckily, Mayah and Tinkertot are the same size and Mayah graciously lent her a swimsuit. Look at that smile on her face!

The big kids partied under the Japanese Maple. What a neat little hiding spot!

Then they moved the party to the pool too. Have you noticed yet that Riley is a giant HAM!?
Meggie is a handtalker!
Trampoline + Sprinkler. Awesome!

When we went to Seth's birthday in December we didn't have any money. So no present. (I know. We're like the lamest friends ever. We're lucky the Abelmans love us anyway.) So this time we came prepared with a matching spiderman shirt for Seth. Apparently he liked it!

Andrew drooling over Riley's Transformers.
Another highlight, at least for the younger boys, was these lawnmowers and digging machines. They played with them for hours.

Yup, I definitely say that the spidey shirt was a hit.

Meanwhile, Elisabeth is wondering if Tash is ever going to serve that cake?

Ashlie and Ashlee. New friends.
