Happy 2nd Birthday, Cason!!

I can't believe it has been a year since our friend, Cason's, first birthday. But time is flying oh so fast, and it was time to celebrate his second birthday this weekend. He had a fun party at Pump It Up, which has bounce houses, slides, etc... for the kids to play on.

Christina made this adorable Blues Clues cake...she's so talented! It tasted as good as it looked!
Eric and Cason practicing, "I'm 2!!!"
Matt, me, Christina and Eric...These guys have been in our community group at church for over 2 years and are now moving away to another city. We will miss them VERY much and our community group will not be the same. But we are excited for the new opportunities that await them!

Caroline was terrified of the bounce houses at the beginning of the party. She finally started to warm up on this big, inflatable slide and ended up having a good ole' time climbing and sliding. Her she is with Matt, Parker and Jason, getting ready to slide.

Matt and I did everything possible to help Caroline feel comfortable...including playing in the bounce houses ourselves. We both agreed it was fun to feel like kids again :-) Sweet Laura, trying to help me cheer Caroline up

Looks like a fun party!! Olivia hated bounce house and all things inflatable until sometime this year. Not that that is encouraging just want you to feel like Caroline is alone in her fear! :)
