I was excited to have a joint birthday party for the boys at the pool again this year. We had a great time last year and its fun getting all our friends together. We have had thunderstorms pretty much every afternoon this week so I was carefully eyeing the weather for the big day. It looked it like would be clear for at least a little bit. I hauled everything over to the pool and right at 6 when the party started...
it started pouring and thundering and lightning. We all hovered under the shelter and ate the pizza. It looked the storm was passing but then radar was showing another big storm behind. So when the rain let up most of us headed back across the street to our house for cupcakes.

We crammed everyone in and sand happy birthday to the boys.
Good thing we don't have a dining room table! Everyone was so flexible and ate wherever. Kids played in all the different rooms. Around 7:30pm Brad said that it looked like it was clearing up and if people wanted they could still head to pool. Families with little kids headed home but some of the older kids went back to swim.
The few that did get in pool enjoyed it.
Good thing they didn't realize what they were missing!

Everyone said they still had fun and that I was super flexible but it was hard to not be disappointed after last year where the weather was perfect. Oh well. I'm kinda glad its over and I'm not checking the weather every few minutes!
