After all of the "things that had to be done" were out of the way, it was time to have fun! We had asked everyone to bring their swimsuits so that we could have some fun in the water to beat the Texas heat.
Last year, I did not get out there to play on the slide with Emmy until it was almost dark. This year, since I scaled back the party, there was plenty of time for everyone to join in the fun.
The kids had so much fun.
They slid down the slide.
They played in the pool at the bottom.
They played in the kiddie pool that we had set up beside the slide.
They laughed, giggled and screamed in glee.
Kayela and Kelley were such a big help the whole party and for sure during this part. They tirelessly took kids up and down the slide. They CARRIED them up and down the climbing wall on the back and everything. I am in their debt.
Some people didn't care to get wet, but that didn't stop them from having some fun.
Eventually Grannie decided that she would try the slide. I didn't know until she was already down the slide that she was going to do it, so I didn't get a pictures. :(
