Yesterday was our 2nd annual "Moorehead Christmas in July Party" at our house. Scott and I love to throw parties and this is our big shindig! When we lived in Noblesville we always had a Christmas Party but with the busy Holiday season we decided now that we live in Marion we need a summer party instead, especially since we have a nice outdoor party house. The weather man was predicting a record low for the day so we were a little bummed thinking people would have to wear sweatshirts and the pool wouldn't even get used. Luckily he was wrong and it turned out to be a great day! I cranked to pool up to 90 degrees so the kids were even able to enjoy that (and the adults late night!) We want to thank all of our friends for coming and a big thanks to all the grandparents for taking the kids away so we could play too!! Here are some pictures from the day activities; night time was fun but no need for those pictures on the family blog!!
Marlee was happy to have so many friends to play with! Mason was too. He spent a good portion of the party in the pool with his buddies!
Wyatt was the last kid standing at the party and was ready to keep going when he was finally packed up (Swollen eye and all.... there were a few bumps and bruises in the kid department... oh, I think in the adult department too.... hehehehe)
Here is Mason and Cousin Anna on the jeep
Ace was loving the jeep too, dodging babies the whole way!
Preston got a little worn out as the day went on!
Meredith was showing us her biking skills!
Noah and Isabella were giving Ruby lots of lovin'!
Here's AJ giving Noah the tour!
The water bug of the day, Tyler!
His little bro Trevor kept the lawn looking nice!
Thanks so much Arden and Asa for bringing the Roller Coaster! It was a hit with the little ones (and a few of the big ones later!) Notice Ace underneath, Masons the one going down and Arden is supervising as usual!!!
Longest drive goes to Maggie who came all the way from Cincinnati to play with Marlee! Thanks for coming Bakers, it was great to see you!
Here are Preston, Marlee and Brady. Preston and Brady were born on the same day exactly 3 weeks before Marlee. Won't these 3 be causing trouble next year!
There were quite a few more kids here; Stella, Norah and Ryan, Conner, Ashton, and Drew but with naps, packing the kids up and getting dinner set up I missed the photos of that group. I'm thinking Tricia will have some good pics of them on her blog soon!
Me and my brother Jace, thanks for coming and making margaritas for us!
After the kids made their way home we played a round of kickball. It was so much fun and sure to be a tradition we continue for years to come! This was the winning team.
And here are the losers! But we all had a blast!!
Thanks again for coming friends!!! We love you!!!!!!!!
See you soon!
