The pool was finally ready, thanks to Darling Man's TWO WEEKS' worth of efforts. The day was warm enough and the water only just warm enough for the kids to jump in and have great raging water battles. These included not only water guns, but water balloons as well.
After everyone left, we finally found the Happy Birthday masks. ZBoy and his grandmother Buba modeled the masks and the hats for us.
Z said it was the best party ever. He had two of his friends spend the night, and they were all so worn out that silence descended before 10pm ever came.
I am glad, however, that it will be another year before we do another party!
