There were however a lot of bubbles. And water balloons. And happy girls, but you'll only see us because posting other people's kids without permission isn't cool.
I took some Whiskers pictures first because I knew he wouldn't be around much during the party. He did make one brave pass through the water soaked back yard.
Those water balloons were gone in about 10 minutes and a steady supply was manufactured throughout the party. This little device worked pretty well except for the fact that it was missing the top handle part and we should have had three. It ties them too which was cool.
Anne brought Emily some cool purple bubbles.
And Caleb used them for target practice.
Also his sister.
That's one of those caught just before impact pictures.
Grape juice bubble:
Karen is the coolest mom ever.
Caleb knows how to rock a kiddie pool.
We hadn't had much success convincing invincible 12 year olds to put sunscreen on and there was a lot of pasty white skin. I'm not really proud of this but I took my pizza leftover and the sun screen over to them and suggested that if they didn't want their skin to look like this when they are 45 they might want to apply some protection.
That got about half of them so I feel good about that.
A badminton racquet makes a great bubble wand.

I decided I wanted to get wet and Caleb was happy to assist.
Great party Emily. Happy summer!
So yeah back at the hummingbird ranch I was just getting started taking pictures of wingless birds...
When Batman cat decided he needed to get in touch with nature.
