Chloe's Pool Party

This is the 2nd year in a row that we have done Chloe's birthday party at the pool on Pioneer Days weekend. It has worked out really well and been perfect weather for it. This year she wanted an Olaf themed party and since her birthday is in the summer I got her a summer Olaf cake. It turned out so cute!!

Chloe cannonball!

Layla enjoyed swimming this year as well!

"Take a picture of me under the water mom!"

Sami was so sweet with Layla making sure she was ok in the pool at all times.

Friends Trey and McGuire. You can tell by this picture that McGuire HATES the pool.

Chloe and Sawyer playing with Layla

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy BIRTHDAY CHLOE KAY, Happy Birthday to YOU!

The whole birthday crew being silly and then all smiles!

Pioneer Days

The Carstensen's were back up for Pioneer Days on July 18th. All the kids wanted to be in the kiddie parade of course. The little girls, Elle and Layla were too adorable dressed alike scooter riding while the big kids rode their bikes.

Ready, set, GO!

Elle had a melt down and only made it over the start line but Layla continued scootering on until she found daddy, Nana and Poppy about half way thru and stopped.

Chloe, Joel, Layla and Sami waitng for candy.

After the parade we went and got tattoos.

It was a fun morning that was continued on in the afternoon with Chloe's birthday party....

Party Trolley

I bid on and won 2 hours on the Spokane Party Trolley at the Growing Gorilla's preschool auction. The plan was to dress up in Americana and go on July 2nd before the 4th. But with mom just passing I wasn't ready. On July 17th we made it happen and we still wore our Red, White and Blue! This seriously was the most fun 2 hours! My face hurt from laughing so much!! It was pedal, pedal, pedal and then giggle, giggle, giggle. TOO MUCH FUN! Enjoy all the #selfies...
Here is the whole group before we started!
The back crew doesn't have to pedal so we were just hanging out while all the others worked!
AND THEN they made me do the Spoon Shot!



At O'Doherty's Angie broke out the red lipstick - oh boy!!  


These two love the mules and the copper cups!

The 2 hours on the trolley went SO fast! Afterwards we all went out to dinner and then this small group of us headed to Quest to dance before the night was over. I think this by far was one of the most fun girls nights out! Good friends, lots of laughs and just plain FUN!
