I always say I will NEVER do another party at my house, but this one was actually such a joy! Since Oscar has a summer birthday, I thought we should celebrate with a “beach” party. This was a risky theme considering late June in Texas could mean some sweltering temps. The party gods smiled happily on us, and we had a nice partly cloudy day that was so pleasant.

We decorated the backyard like a beach, which everything but the sand (I hate sand unless it’s actually on a beach. And even then I hate how it sticks with you for.ev.er.). We even had an inflatable water slide and a snocone truck!
Oscar had a blast, but I think Walt had the most fun 😉 This is fine by me, considering his January birthday never allows for such parties.
|If you squint your eyes, this really does make the backyard feel like a beach #fakesand|
|The water slide was easily the hit of the party.|
|Oscar with both his grandmas. Happy boy!|
|Oscar and Papa Chuck being super silly.|
And a few quick videos to show how much fun was really had. Oscar dancing with Papa Chuck 🙂
