Happy Birthday to my honey! He was out of town on his birthday (which was over a week ago) so we had a small celebration at home with family for him.
His brother, wife & their son were there. That baby boy is a sweetie, he is always so content and smily. A little on the shy side (but not clingy) and always ready with a grin! He was having a fantastic time, splashing on the steps & posing for photos.
My brother, sister-in-law and nephew came too. My nephew is the one with the pool noodle AND the arm floaties, he wanted to be doubly protected, I guess? He's just not ready to let them go yet...I tried...he screamed very loudly!
My fiance's daughter finally braved going off the diving board alone and of course, once she tried it a few times we couldn't keep away and she happily jumped all day! Her favorite thing is having her dad toss her high in the air inside the swimming pool...again...and again! That's my honey tossing the kids...Lookin' pretty hot in those tinted goggles, honey!
Getting tossed is NOT my son's favorite thing to do in the pool but I think he wanted to show off for his cousin so he had my fiance toss him too...talk about "fish out of water!"
We ate barbequed turkey burgers, Italian sausages on buns, baked beans, chips and Diet 7-up. The kids were starving and ate like we'd never seen before! Something about swimming for hours in the hot sun really works up the appetite.
After we retired to the front yard in the shade of our tree, my sister-in-law cooked up a batch of pancit and we sang "Happy Birthday" to my fiance with a mocha cake they'd bought at the grocery. I'd planned on baking him a cake from scratch as a surprise but 1. It was too darned hot to turn on the oven and 2. I was with him all day long the entire weekend!
The day ended sweetly with a rare treat bought from the ice cream truck. And we all had a slight souvenir of the day on our bodies in the pinkness of our skin!
