4 kids equals lots of parties and goodtimes

Happy 7th Birthday Sully! 
 We were all invited too Sully's swim party but I couldn't possibly take 4 kids swimming by myself so James, Damon and Ashley came with me.  My husband was golfing in a tournament but I'm very lucky to have a great neighbour who watched Taylor so Ashley could swim.  The kids loved every minute of the swim too.  I definitely need to find a way to take them to the pool for regular swimming this summer.  

Here's Ashley and I in the pool.  Ashley was squealing with delight the whole time. An hour of swimming from 5 until 6 had her exhausted too.  I swear she ate afterwards half sleeping she enjoyed some pizza and fries before falling asleep in the middle of the party. It was a really good time the boys couldn't stop talking about the swim too. 

James in the deep end he was the last one out of the pool.  
Check out these loot bags Sully's mom is a professional isn't she. These went over really well with the kids too.

Then Sunday another day another party.

Carter turned one on sunday and it was Taylor's  turn to enjoy a party.  I don't find it very easy to take Ashley and Taylor to a party together now that Taylor is walking he needs to be closely watched and so does Ashley. She sometimes finds all the people and noise a little overwhelming and needs to calmed which is hard to do well keeping up with Taylor.  I wasn't sure how I'd mange them both so Ashley went to Sully's party and Taylor to Carter's.

My friend Carm with Carter the birthday boy and Alexandra her little girl.
Happy Birthday Carter!
Her Cousin made this fabulous cake it was so professional and delicious.

It was such a great weekend, so nice to spend time with friends and celebrate little ones birthday's.  I need to practise my photographer skills I took many pictures at Carter's party but not one good one of Taylor and his buddy Carter.  I was always behind Taylor it seems and my photos are of his back.

Such a great weekend.  My husband was pretty happy after playing golf with some neighbours he now has some new friends and seemed to really enjoy winning the tournament.

Here's an addition to this post a photo Carm sent me of the four of us...

If you figure out an easy way to bring the four munchkins swimming by yourself be sure to share 8)

Taylor looks like a little cherub in that last picture with his little hand on his cheek! How adorable!

I would have loved to beat the heat today and take the girls to the pool by myself, but yeah. I can't do it alone either. Glad you found a way to work it out! :)

We always have soooo much fun at swim parties! If I wasn't so cheap, I'd do that for my kids. ;) We had 2 parties on Sunday this weekend. Phew!

And I love that 1 year old birthday cake! Gorgeous!
