For Gus' party this year, he chose an Olympic theme, complete with flags, Go USA food and decorations and water balloon tosses. We had it at our VERY in-process farmhouse (note the washing machine holding utensils) and got a chance to use the new (redneck) above ground pool.
It actually turned out to be a wee bit cool for swimming, so Scott volunteered to be the designated adult swimmer, since I most definitely was not getting in.
And last but not least was the jello cake. Yes, the same kind as was requested last year! I think I see a tradition in the making.
And yes, we did put candles delicately into the jello...
and rejoiced as our little buddy turned 5!
We love you Gus!
