Fun Monday "Five"



This weeks Fun Monday is hosted by The Nekked Lizards

This week's Fun Monday is a really simple one:
FIVE PICTURES - FIVE WORDS PER PICTURE.

Any 5 (FIVE) pictures, any subject,
and any 5 (FIVE) words to describe and/or explain each picture.

I like the easy ones! Especially with everything else going on lately.

Izzak my oldest turned 13 last Monday and Sunday was his birthday party so I thought this Fun Monday would be a good way to show some of the pictures from the party. Makes it even easier for me since it gives me a theme along with the challenge. We had Izzaks birthday party at the local pool somehow I got lucky and got it just the week after his birthday. We only have one pool on the Island so it is usually booked out months in advance.

Silly looking goggle girls swimming.....

Yep that was my best effort! Seriously at the moment my brain is still on overdrive and all the stuff going on with our familys health in the last week is not helping my own health problems since I tend to get stressed out and that exacerbates my own symptoms.

Izzak had a really great party though and most of the boys from his youth group showed up which he was soo excited about. He is the youngest in the group with most of the others being 16 and over so he felt pretty cool to have the bigger boys thinking he was cool enough to come to his party. You should have seen the grin on his face! Not to mention he got several things he was really wanting from us like a new cd player and cell phone (he actually really needed it) plus lots of money from other kids. It looks like I get to take him into town tomorrow so he can pick out his new pair of heelys.

Fun party, soggy kids. Yeah!

Megnificent said...

Great party. I love swimming.

Faye said...

Oh boy! A cell phone--life is good! Now I've just learned a new vocabulary word--heelies--I'm assuming they're those trick shoes?

Pamela said...

hands down, the feet in the air picture is the most entertaining!!! Especially where it's placed in the captions. ha ha ha ha.

Robinella said...

That last caption sounds like it belongs in Dr. Suess. It seems all of my friends bought cell phones for the kids this past year.

glad to hear things worked out with the pool for Izaak's birthday! It looks like he had a great time..and that's really neat that the older guys came to his party! How exciting for him...and wow what a great boost to a kid's self image!
Courtenay and I were just look9ing at a map of Alaska to find Ketchikan...it doesn't look like an island on the map...do you say Ketchikan because it's the next largest city?
I really hope things start looking up for you guys really soon!
take care
Heather

You did a fantastic job with this (and the party) considering everything that you have going on in you life right now. It looks like a good time was had by all at the party!

Great photo's and Izzak certainly looks like he is having a super time with his friends.

What are "Heelys"??

What ever they are - hope Izzak enjoys his teenage spending spree.

Nekked Lizard Lady said...

Poot turns 13 this year... can't believe it. Please pass along a very happy happy birthday to Izzak. Love the feet and thanks for playing.

kitten said...

What a wonderful party!!! They turned our city pool into tennis courts. I don't want to drive to Tupelo to let them swim. So, I try to keep a pool here, but some how every year it get's tore up. I hope we can just buy a liner this year. $40 verses $3-500 is a lot of difference.

Kila said...

A cell phone--how cool is that?!

Glad he had a great party!

dawn said...

The theme worked out great. It is nice you could have a fun day in your chaotic life. I hope things improve soon.

Thanks for sharing!

nikki said...

I'm glad he had a wonderful party. A little bright side to your past couple of weeks. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Sayre said...

My son would LOVE some heelys. Not gonna happen though. Not if he wants a DS - not much of anything ELSE will happen! We try to have a pool party for his birthday - since we have the pool and it's usually finally warm enough to swim.

Beccy said...

The party looks like great fun.

Sorry to hear about Kelly's sister and brother...and I hope your toothache is better.

mjd said...

I hope that you are feeling better. The pool party does look like lots of fun.

Swimming parties are great. The kids have a blast AND exhausted afterwards too!

Happy Birthday, Izzak.

Sorry to read you've been having health problems. I hope y'all get better soon.
