|This is right before he launched him across the pool. James knows it’s coming.

Having been in our house for almost two years, and making some pretty good progress on fixing it up (which I know I need to blog about), we thought we’d finally throw a little shindig here. Since it was August in Florida, we went with a pool party! Our sizable backyard now boasts a treehouse, a swing, and for that day, a homemade slip-n-slide!
|The kids were launching little foam airplanes from the treehouse.
|Giant sheet of plastic + dish soap + water hose = slip-n-slide fun!
|Goggles helped prevent soap in the eyes. Plus, let’s face it, they look cool.
|Hose in backyard leads to mud which leads to very dirty and very happy little children.
|My friend, Larcy, made this amazing cake! So blown away by this!
|Chris and Tia attempt to teeter totter in the pool. They were not upright for long.
I have been banned from posting any other pictures or videos of our friends attempting this.
|Pool party fun! Thanks to those of you who joined us!
2018 travel plans are already in the works… so stay tuned!
