The Shannon's Mudfest

So I watched the weather everyday for over a week and prayed for no rain. Well the Thursday before the party it looked as though it was going to rain all weekend. Martin quickly called a friend a we got a huge tent that covered about half of the backyard. We put a tent on the deck and a tent connecting the deck to the large tent to try to keep everyone dry. It really was not just a rain. It was a monsoon the entire weekend. Needless to say it was a wild MUDFEST..wetkids...wet people, but the libations were flowing for the kiddies and the adults and we tried very hard not to let it ruin the party! There are not many great pics b/c it was just so wild and so wet I did not even take one!

Coop right as the party was beginning!

Very Very Excited!! Finally the time has come!

The Bobcat and excavator Martin brought from work. The kids loved it!! We tried to put a tent over it too!

The setup!! To some what keep us dry! Yes we set all this up in the rain!
The next problem we had was WORMS..yes worms..not just worms, monstrous gigantic worms. I have never seen any this big. They started popping up under the big tent first. I think they were drowned out of the ground b/c it literally rained for about three days straight. Of course the boys loved them..

Amelia not so much!!!

This was supposed to be the sand pile that I buried over 150 bouncy balls in, but it turned into the mud pit!

The kids loved digging in it anyway.

This was when the wet muddy boys decided to come in and take over the house. Mud, toys, clothes, shoes, water everywhere!!

Trying to get the boys to calm down so the adults could have a little fun! This is Coop, Gracen, Grant and John.

The next morning John and Coop were enjoying some quite time..finally!

Now everyday Coop asks me what we are doing next year! I think we may skip it next year!! This was enough to make it through two bdays right??
Happy 4th Birthday Coop!!
