Jackson's Birthday Party

We had Jackson's construction themed birthday party this weekend, and it was great! I did get the cake, tons of friends and family came, and I think our house has imploded from all the toys Jackson got. I decided to do cake and ice cream, chips and dip, and because it was a construction theme, I made Dirt dessert that was served in a sand pail with a shovel. I had worms coming out of the dirt. It was pretty cute, and tasted good too!

We had a blast! Jackson wanted to spend the majority of the party outside, which was pretty funny (and not about to happen), and he really had no interest in opening the presents. He was too busy playing with the trucks at Nana's house. Some of the other kids that came ended up opening some of the presents, which I thought was hilarious. As soon as he would see a new present opened he would say, "Take it out" meaning for one of us to take it out of the package. Then he would run off to the newest toy. That was pretty funny. Also, when we would tell him to say thank you to the person whose gift he had just opened, he would take the gift back to them and say, "here you go." He's so sweet!

After we ate, and the presents were opened, we headed to the back yard where the older kids, Bella Hope, Gracie, and Jackson played in the sand box. Then they decided to put their feet in the pool. Jackson ended up getting stripped down to his diaper, and the girls both sat down on the steps of the pool. Gracie finally just ended up swimming with my Dad. We had a great day, and were so happy with everything!

Enjoy the pictures (there's only about a million of them!)

Kellyn was my official photographer and she commandeered my camera long enough for some self photos with Dad.
I'm sure I'm gonna hear it for this one :)

I LOVE the fact that my Grandparent's smiling faces are in the background of this picture. They were never able to meet Jackson (he was the first great grandchild on that side of the family), but I know they are still with us in spirit...

I love all of the pictures. It is so hard for me to believe Jackson is 2! And all of those "babies" are just growing too fast. Looked like a really fun party. You did a great job!
