Aidan's Birthday Party

I have been meaning to write this post for a week now but I was so busy entertaining I took no pictures of my own so I had to wait to steal some from friends on facebook.  I am a terrible picture taking mom these days. 

For the kids, the day was perfect. Jump house turned water slide, pinatas, presents and cupcakes.   For the adults, the food and company was as well but the heat was another story.  It was 95 degrees and there was no way we were all going to fit in our little house so we were forced to hang outside and there wasn't enough water or Mexican dip to make any of us feel better.  Watching Aidan have the time of his life made it a little bit more bearable. 

I did manage to snap this photo before everyone came over of Aidan in his birthday shirt.  It of course had to have a fire truck on it.
The second the bounce house was blown up, Aidan was glued to it.
He was getting a little hot here.
We got this brilliant idea to fill up the baby pool Mike got Aidan and put it at the end of the slide to keep the boys cool.
And it starts...
The next thing I knew, he was naked and having the time of his life.
It does look like fun doesn't it?
This was his pull apart cake we got from Polka Dot Bake Shop here in Charlotte. We love their cupcakes.
At this point I was super disorganized and happy to even get Aidan to come inside for 5 minutes to blow out candles so everyone could have a cupcake.  That is the reason he is sitting on the dining room table.  He loved having everyone sing to him.
His candles spelt out his name.  He let Daddy help him blow them out so that we didn't have spit all over everything.

I did decorate in firetrucks but sadly there are no pictures. 
These were our plates.
Cups for the kids.
We had a ton of balloons blown up and tied to the umbrellas and tiki torches out back.
The fire truck balloons.
And in typical Aidan birthday weekend fashion, Sunday we hit the boat with Jordan and Hannah to finish off the weekend.  It was so nice out. 
Daddy, Aidan and Uncle Jordan.
I just think this photo is adorable.  Look at those little flip flops.  He loves the boat so much.

Thanks to Hannah and Mandi for the pictures from the weekend and for everyone who came out and helped our little guy celebrate.  We are so blessed to have so many wonderful family members and friends to love Aidan as much as us.

He is so adorable! Glad he had a great birthday! And, don't feel bad about not taking pictures, my girls had their parties together, and I didn't get hardly any!
