~ Sounding the Alarm ~

~ Fire Truck Cake ~
Curious J helped make his birthday cake , Saturday night. He loves to cook and enjoyed making it , as much as the party or eating it. Our cake turned out a little lopsided , but Curious J loved it and that's all that counts. My Son-in-Law , said the fire truck was just going around a curve (LOL).

Blowing out the candles and making a Wish !

Pa Pa got his tire swing hung , so I added a little decoration. At first he was a little intimidated by the swing , but after awhile ...........................

He was getting the hang of it . I'm sure he'll be swinging like a monkey before long.
We had lots of water balloons , they played a game called " Put Out the Flame. You had to take a towel and get a water balloon , wrap the balloon (Flame) to smother it and put out the flame , by sitting on it or stomping it. They couldn't get the balloons to burst , it was so funny. They finally had to throw them up in air or against something to bust them.

It was a great party , the adults had alot of fun with the water balloons too. Water Guns and Water Balloons were the perfect thing for a hot August day , most of the adults went home wet too.

I was proud of the older kids , they helped me pick-up all the busted balloon pieces , and I didn't have to ask them to help. I'm planning to use them in an art project and on a scrapbook page.

Hope you had some childlike fun over the weekend !

Lib , Will definitely say a prayer for you , I know how hard it is to keep up with a two year old. Sometimes they're fussy , sometimes they're enjoyable. Happy to hear Little Shadow got excited about the photos. I show Curious J Peggy's blog often , he likes the goats especially when they're wearing their party hats.

The cake is wonderful and I adore the picture of him blowing out the candles. The party sounds fun and I think I might try that game with my niece and nephew.

That cake is so cute! It brought back a lot of memories for me of when my kids were small and I made special cakes for them. It sounds like you all had a lot of fun with those water balloons!!
