Happy Birthday, Marshall!

Last weekend, we headed up to my parents’ house to celebrate my nephew Marshall’s second birthday. It was a fun gathering of friends and family in my parents’ backyard.

My brother set up a fun little water park-type thing. The kids had a ton of fun. There was an elephant that sprayed water out of its trunk, a giraffe sprinkler and an alligator pool. Lucy loved the pool but wasn’t a fan of getting sprayed. But, although she was trepidatious at first, she soon warmed up and said it was “her pool”. She didn’t want anyone else getting in it!

Eventually, the kids came out for the singing of “Happy Birthday” and cake.

Lucy had to be bribed with a cupcake. Typical.

The birthday boy enjoyed his cupcake, too!

Big brother Harrison wanted to help Marshall open his presents. Laid-back Marshall just went with the flow. šŸ™‚

Marshall got an orb, and the kids took turns rolling in it. Lucy hated it. I was a little surprised.

After we got a chilly Lucy out of the pool (kicking and screaming, I might add) and changed into her clothes, she and her Daddy went for a canoe ride on my parents’ lake.
