Watts's 2nd Birthday Party, Part 3

Watts finally made peace with his swashbuckling guest...


I think I forgot to mention so far that one of our favorite cousins came to spend time with us and was able to join us for Watts's birthday.  Watts calls her "Nanah" but her real name is Savanah...
Clean yourself up, kid.  I've got ice cream to eat...
Me and my favorite little buddy...



I love all the colors in this one...
Gotcha again, Skyler!  I am a camera ninja...
For some reason the side of the house became a popular play area.  Don't worry, though.  Caroline had it all under control.  If you want results, send her...

High-fiving each other goodbye...






Just like a real pirate...knife in one hand and gold doubloons in the other!
More cake never hurt anybody...

Elsa's icy punch doubled as Sea Water for Shipwrecked Pirates at this party.  If you have noticed that I have not complained about the heat, it is because a storm threatened to blow through literally as our party began.  We were tremendously blessed when the sky clouded up, the breeze got heavy, and only a few drops of rain fell before the storm went around us.  It cooled everything off and stayed nice and overcast for our party, so the heat wasn't nearly as bad as we had expected it to be.  I do try to make sure our little guests stay well-hydrated, though, so here was some refreshment...
A princess showed up at the pirate party, too...


After it was time for his friends and family to head home, Watts took a bath, put on his jammies, and opened his presents before turning in for the night.  It was a long fun day for all of us...



Watts, in some ways I cannot believe it has been two years since you were born and in some ways it feels like you have always been with us.  We love you very much, sweet boy!  You brighten our lives, Watts Ray!
