Finn's 6th Birthday Party

This weekend we celebrated my nephew's birthday. It was a swim party. I got a bit burned, but it was so fun to see all the kids running around having fun. Even the big kids (cough, cough Bob).

My Grandaddy watched the fun from the sidelines, but I noticed him being a bit mischievous with those water balloons.

My mom is known for her famous cakes. So when she asked what Finn wanted for his birthday he told her a dolphin. I really don't know how she does it. (And the best part is they always taste awesome too.)

** On a side note, I was incredibly flattered when I came to work today and saw my blog full of some of the sweetest comments/compliments ever. Thank you so much for being so nice.. I hope it didn't seem like I was fishing for compliments. I guess it's easier for other's to see what makes you special..but I think it's safe to say, my biggest talent is surrounding myself with such great people.**

That second shot could be a post card from days gone by!
looks like a great weekend- summer birthdays are kinda cool like that.

Thanks for your sweet words on my blog- it is a sad day, but as you said at the bottom of your post, surrounding ourselves with good peeps really does help.

Photoshop question for ya--how do you round your corners? I know it's probably super simple but I can't figure it out. Help!
