A BBQ, Bounce House, Baby Pool & Blog Awards

Alternate title: This post is brought to you by the letter B :-)

We had a busy long weekend which included a BBQ birthday party for a good friend on Sunday. When we told Ish we were going to a party he grabbed his shoes and insisted on wearing this ridiculously too big Mets hat (he is obsessed with saying Mets lately). We allowed him to because, well, he's so dang cute.
We loaded into the car and we were off for an afternoon of fun.
There was a bounce house at the party - Ish had a blast, especially when the big kids got in with him and really bounced him around.
I wish I had video of the hysterical laughter coming from this kid.
There was also a slip and slide - Ish of course had no idea what to do on one, so he just stood there and let the water hit him. It was about 90 degrees out, so I'm sure it was refreshing.
Then he spotted the baby pool. He walked right in - in his clothes and his non-swim diaper.
Cousin Alex soon joined him.
Then cousin Ashley decided to join in on the fun.
We ended the day out with a few snacks. And Ish went to bed early after all that fun in the sun. I love him, but boy do I like early bedtime days!
And after Ish went to bed, I logged on to find out that two great bloggers passed on some great awards to me!

Thanks to Katie over at Sluiter Nation who passed on The Sunshine Award. I have to say, I should be the one giving this to her - I LOVE her blog and always look forward to her posts. Her little guy just turned one and I'm looking forward to seeing pics from his first birthday party.
And thanks to a fellow New Yorker (YEA NY!!!), Harmskills from Baby To Go for the Sugar Doll Award. She has a great blog of travel tips, product recommendations, cute family pics and giveaways.
I encourage you to check out these lady's blogs - you won't be disappointed!
