Here are some pics of the party decorations. I loved personalizing the inner tubes: Drew, Est. 8-1-07 @ 3:47, etc.
Gotta love Pinterest! My BFF Liz helped me set everything up. Love her. SHE is a true LIFE SAVER.
The Lemonade and Water stand…
If adults are required to endure a 7-year-old birthday party, outside at the end of summer, in Texas, with 40+ kids running around screaming~ some “21+ Punch” might make things a little more “enjoyable/bearable/worth while”
Ready for our buddies to arrive! (Drew, Sav, Ethan, and Ben)
We pulled out the trusty old bounce house that we’ve had since the kids were babies! (Best purchase ever, btw). We have used it and lent it out SO many times. Funny how small the bounce house seems know that the kids are significantly bigger in size!
We had our pavement area set up with riding toys, hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, and our Step 2 roller coaster.
We hired an AWESOME balloon artist who goes by the name “Stretch” from Clowing Around!! Think Santa on a Harley Davidson motorcycle with a “Balloon Commander” shirt. He was hilarious and SO good with the kids. His balloons were incredible.
How cute is my widdle nephew
…and then of course, we had to put our pool to good use! (This day marked the one year anniversary that we moved into the house~ very cool to celebrate with friends and fam)
Ben and his BFF, Joe…aren’t they cute?!
When planning this pool party, the first thing I did was secure a lifeguard/pool monitor or I would have been stressed out to the max! Thanks Jessica!
The kids had an absolute blast!
Sav- healthy plate-o-food there, girlfriend…
The Steece men were in charge of grillin’ the dawgs…

We lured the kiddies out of the pool for a group pic & cupcakes!
Sang Happy Birthday to the quadlings…
and then handed out cupcakes (that I begrudgingly did not bake myself…)
As the kiddos were leaving, they could pick out their very own beach ball to take home…
I know, I know…super cheese…but I like it.
Liz and Chris about to pass out from sheer exhaustion…these 2 were amazing and worked their tails off to help us get ready for this party.
The little princess opened up some of her presents and magically transformed into an arrow shootin’ Elsa meets Katniss/Merida.
Such a GREAT day! Thank you SO much to all who have blessed our lives, especially over these last 7/8 years.
And to all of you, bloggie friends, who have been following our story from afar~ just wanted to say thank you for all of your love.
Happy Birthday, babies. So proud to be your Mama.
