"Good morning Birthday Boy!!"
His favorite breakfast pastry and favorite fruit were served.
Kinda lame... I know.... but he LOVED it!
My lovely and talented sister, Katie, came over to make Treyson's "cake" with me.
("Cake" in quotations because I sculpted it out of rice cereal treats this time,
so it would hold it's shape better.)
Katie and I would love to do this all day, every day.
And maybe we even WILL someday.
If you couldn't tell, or are not a Transformers fan, this is Bumblebee.
Rear view mirrors and all!
Check out the sweet detail Katie did on the tires.
Did we go over board?...... No way. NEVER!
Okay, maybe sometimes.
Treyson really did love the cake as well,
but I think Katie and I loved it more.
For the actual party, I knew the only things Trey cared about were presents.
So, just to make it simple, we blew up a whole bunch of water balloons and went to the park by our house.
There's no way I could have done all this work without Katie here. (I can neither confirm nor deny her missing work that day to help me.) She filled up almost all the balloons while I made cupcakes.
During the fill-up task, a never before seen alien balloon was discovered:
...Three openings!? Amazing.
Jeff's sister owns a balloon launcher and were kind enough to bring it....
.....along with their new snow cone making machine.
Although the weather was slightly cooler than usual and windy, everyone seemed to have a good time.
My mom got some nice shots of people NOT catching the water balloons.
It was only possible with a towel and even THAT didn't work sometimes:
Less than halfway through our water balloon stash, we opened up the coolers for everyone to
Then it was time for "Happy Birthday" and presents.
As I was going through all the pictures, I couldn't believe how many different facial expressions Treyson used!! Funny.
Love you Trey!!!
