|It is amazing how much Luke's team has improved since last year.|
This year we celebrated Lily's birthday a week later than usual. Andy, Evie and I drove out on Wednesday, May 13 so we could see some of Luke and Lily's ball games and gymnastics. The party on Saturday was the biggest party yet and there were at least 30 children and we didn't even bother to count the adults that included friends and parents of the party goers. Lily got a trampoline for her birthday and that was the most popular while the giant slide was a close 2nd. Pop Pop Ed and Pop Pop Andy manned the snow cone machine and were busy all afternoon crushing ice and getting sticky from the syrup. The pinata this year was packed, by me, with small toys and not so much candy. I must have overloaded it because when Ed lowered it from the upstairs balcony it broke loose from the handle and fell to the deck below. Thank goodness no one was hurt. The kids each had a ribbon to pull so they were not directly under the Rainbow Pony when it came crashing down. Everyone had a great time, so good in fact, that we weren't sure they were ever going to go home. It started looking more and more like rain and we deflated the slide so it wouldn't get wet.

|Trish and Chad's backyard looked like a carnival!|
|Deflating the giant slide, where's Tom Brady when you need him?!!|
On Sunday after Luke and Lily had their practice for an upcoming gymnastics/parkour meet, we drove down to Rehobeth Beach and spent some time at Funland. Evie was so cute when we finished our rides and went out on the Boardwalk she turned to me and asked, "Mamaw, is that the beach?". She was so excited that we had to kick off our shoes and head to the water.
