Baby Bash 2011

Yesterday was the third annual Baby Bash. 
Started a few years ago when this motley crew came into the world. 

Tess, Logan, Reagan, and Madelyn 2009

The Originals
Logan, Reagan, Tess, and Madelyn

There have been a few additions since then. 





It was a perfect day for a cookout.
We ate.....
Gracie 2011
Big Sis Maddy in 2010.
Those Smith girls like their cupcakes.
Some of us thought toes were better than cupcakes.
We played 

We laughed 

We chit chatted 

Whoa buddy, that's not chit chat.
Missed the money shot but trust me, he kissed the girl.
Logan, the true lady's man. 
There were some big kids, but they have a tendency to avoid the adults during these kinds of things. 
And lest you think that getting four 3 and almost 3 yr olds together for a pic is easy.... 

Almost got em all..... 
Nope, maybe not. 
There were about 5 other shots of intolerant kids too but you get the point.
And don't let Logan fool you. He knew there was a cupcake waiting for him if he stood still for the picture.

Last weekend was our first Pee Wee game, the Greyhounds versus the Bulldogs.
Now do you get the title?
The alternate title was "A Sea of Red". Get it?
We didn't really go to watch the game though. We went to see this girl in action. 

I think she had fun, even though she was a sweaty mess.

The team didn't do too bad either.
We got a TD in the first few minutes, then were tied up until the last 2 minutes of the game. Darnit.
Isn't it funny how you think you're not really into football
until you find yourself yelling from the stands during a Pee Wee game? 

Anyway, off to Monroe today. Home game schedule to follow.

I missed it

Last week my blog celebrated 5 years, with very little pomp and circumstance. I guess since I actually didn't notice, we'll have to celebrate with a party!! Or at least some party pics.
Prepare to be bombarded.
Tess's 3rd birthday was August 10th.

We celebrated at the park 
in an outfit made by Grandma  
with cupcakes from Gigi's

Chocolate salted caramel anyone? 
Tess was a bit shy for her shining moment 
But she did manage to blow out the candle with a little help from big sis. 
Cousin Mia came out to celebrate with us! 
A few other friends came out to enjoy the fun too. 
Kenley and Logan 

And Owen and Missy 
He was super excited, can't you tell? Until we told him he couldn't have a cupcake. :op

And then came the presents 

A bit of a Dora obsession 

After the wrapping paper was cleaned up and the cupcakes stuffed into our bellies,
we headed into the Tippecanoe Aquatic Center for some awesome fun. 

There was something for everyone.

Even cousin Braeden came out to play. These two were like fish though.
We rarely saw them out of the water which made it difficult to snap pics. 

Everybody had a great time welcoming Tess into her fourth year.
