Gunnar and Griffin's Birthday Party

We decided to combine Griffin and Gunnar's birthday parties because Gunnar's is May 15, and Griffin's is June 24... We had Tyra's in March and Gannon's in April... I think everyone would be a little tired of coming to our house once a month for a birthday party.  So we picked a date right in the middle... June 5.  We picked a great day!  70 degrees and sunshine!

Tyra, Kennedy Jackson, and Daylin Dykstra

My boys are getting big... Gunnar 3, Gannon 5, and Griffin almost 7!

Waiting for everyone to get to the party... They were slip-n-sliding by 10am!

With all immediate family there is a total of 40 people!  Plus we had a couple friends!  I couldn't imagine it any other way!  Both Grant's side and mine are big families... we obviously love that or we wouldn't have had 4 kids ourselves!

Griffin got this pitch back from Papa and Nana... Daddy suggested thats what they should get him... I think he is tired of playing catch with Griffin all the time!  Now Griffin can pitch it and catch it himself!  Griffin also got a paddle ball set, some rollerblades, sports illustrated for kids, a baseball DS game.  He was a happy birthday boy!

The huge slip-n-slide is always a big hit... the kids can go on it for hours and hours!!

Mama and her birthday boys... Nana demanded my picture to be taken!  I guess the boys will know what their mom looked like... I am usually the one behind the camera

Trying out the new blades!

Gunnar got this from Grandpa Rick and Grandma Deba and Nana and Papa, he also got crocs, candy (which he was really excited about... he is my big time snacker candy boy), a camping chair, money, and a water paddle ball set.  He was also a very happy birthday boy.  The party was great!  We were so greatful for the awesome weather!  Its so nice when the 44 people can be outside!
