Bri's Splash Bash! (5th Birthday Party!)

my beautiful girl, ready for her 5th birthday party called "Bri's Splash Bash!"
Today we celebrated Bri's 5th Birthday and it was a huge hit.  But it didn't start out that way...We were worried about extreme heat but never dreamed that we would need to worry about RAIN!  Sure enough, it poured buckets just minutes before the doorbell rang.  Bri was sad but she took it like a champ.  Elise and I (daddy) were so proud of how she handled the disappointment.  So we quickly scrambled up a Plan B (or, to be exact, Elise did).  We moved everything inside and played games:  Freeze Dance, darts, charades, and the classic limbo.  It was a non-stop frenzy and then we gulped down some of the best chocolate cake this side of Butde's Mississippi Mud Pie and then - wouldn't you know it - the rain stopped and we ran outside and had an EPIC water fight.  Water balloons, guns, bazooka blasters (kind of), kiddie pools, you name it.  The drenching went on for at least a good hour.  

Showing off a gift!
Mom made a family favorite!

freeze dance!

Daddy was the happy "fall guy" for the festivities!

The girls treated these buckets like little Jacuzzi's..

Brianna,  your Mommy and Daddy love you so much and we could NOT be prouder to have you as our daughter.  Happy Birthday sweet girl.  We pray that God will continue to nurture that sparkle in you.
