Our running gag birthday party for the twins is Pink Flamingos in the Pool because we always have a huge water themed party for them and when their birthday comes around all the Hawaiian Luau stuff goes on sale. So this was our 2nd annual Flamingo bash for their very special 3rd birthday!
It really was a great party except it rained. It rained the entire day. It was 95 degrees the day before the party and than we had a high in the 60's the day of the party. Needless to say we put away Rachel's custom flamingo bathing suit and brought out the jackets. We all crowded inside while the kids bundled still made the water slide into a cool dry slide.
As I always joke I am a very Type A personality and so this was not an easy day for me at first but once I saw the happiness everyone had I loosened up. My wonderful sister came in from Vegas, we had so many great friends and family there, but most importantly my babies were happy. That is what matters for kid parties after all. Cally kept saying "oh wow" every gift he got and Rachel pranced around singing "Pink Flamingos in the Pool!" Everyone had a great time and it was a wonderful. Not as planned but in an odd way it will always be much more memorable because of that :)
