The whole Higgins family got together for a BBQ/party at Aunt Ronda's house. Lots of yummy food, fun people, a cool house for babies to nap in, and endless entertainment for the kids. We all had a blast!
This is how Cayden literally spent the entire night. Soaking wet. We had to pry him away to eat dinner. Even with his favorite food available he couldn't wait to get back to the water guns.
Jan and Bruce brought their cotton candy machine. It was a huge hit. I love that Eric is waiting in line with all the little kids. :) Much to his dismay, Cayden was too caught up in playing to even go get cotton candy. Chad and I tried to get him to eat some, but he was just too busy. After we got home he was quite upset that he didn't get any cotton candy. Apparently you can never win as a parent.
Laura's first taste of cotton candy. Poor girl had never had it before. She liked it so much she tried to shove the entire wadded up ball into her mouth. (Chad did encourage this behavior.)
Of course, gagging ensued. Thankfully, cotton candy disintegrates pretty quickly so no vomiting happened.
Cute little girls convinced someone to give them a never ending ride in the wagon.
For Memorial Day we had all of Chad's family that was in town (Carlic and Steven) over for grilling and swimming. Cayden was still a little hesitant near the water, but not nearly as bad as he was last year. Laura and Grace seem to be little fishies and just love being in the water.
Cayden in the floatie that he never left. It helps him feel comfortable in the water so I guess that's all that matters. I seriously need to get this boy in swim lessons this summer.
Swimming with daddy. Laura is a little klepto and stole that inflatable fish from a little girl. She wasn't too happy when we left and she had to give it back.
Swimming with Steven.
That girl had a death grip on the fish. She didn't even let go when being thrown into the air. I love the picture of Laura midair between Steven and Chad.
This is how Grace started out swimming. She was so interested in the water that near the end we put her in.
Success! This girl loves the water! Look at those huge grins!
Chomping on some keys and relaxing while everyone else got dried off.
