Cooper's 3rd Birthday Party

Every year, rain is usually a big concern for Cooper's party.  With it always being outside, in the afternoon, at the end of June - we usually have to worry about afternoon summer showers.  Luckily, this year there was zero rain in the forecast!  It was nice to not have to stress about it!

When Cooper woke up from his nap at 3, we headed straight out to the pool to play and wait for people to start arriving!  Aunt Laura brought some water guns, and they were a big hit!

I love this face!

Matt enjoys getting some baby snuggles in when he can.  :)

Next year the Ray's will have another sweet baby to bring to the party!

The kids are all a little bigger this year and had a blast jumping in all over the place!

This is the first year that Kayla and Andrew have been able to come.  Cooper was so happy!

These sweet girls had to stick together!

We swam for a while, and then we served pizza (so easy!).  Then it was time for cake!  We surprised Coop with this super cool Lightening McQueen cake from Publix.

Cooper was so precious when everyone was singing to him.  :)

It was a little windy, so the candles were trying to go out on their own.  Thankfully Daddy was able to block them enough for Cooper to blow them out on his own.

Our sweet boy is 3!

Waiting for the first piece of his birthday cake!

Sweet Britt was so patient waiting for her piece.

This boy chowed down on his cake!

After cake, we let Cooper open his presents.  The nice thing was, the kids could watch if they wanted, or they could just keep swimming.  Everyone was happy!

Cooper hugging Kye as a "thank you" for his present.

Andrew was so sweet and watched the whole thing.

Cooper got a toy plane just like Nunu's - and took it straight to him to put the stickers on correctly.  :)

After presents, all the kids wanted a turn being thrown up in the air!

I love LL's sweet face in this one.

Ha!  Cooper lost his pants during his turn!

I was so happy that LL's best friend Madeline could come to the party!  LL needed another girl with all these boys around!

After everyone left, my favorite girls helped me get everything all cleaned up!

KK's - the baby whisperer.

It really was such a fun party!  The thing I love about a pool party is that all the kids have so much fun!  You can take a look back at Cooper's other parties here:
