Party at Blacktail Dam

Alex's little friend Wyatt had his birthday party at Blacktail Dam. Alex was thrilled because the party would include friends, cake, and fishing. It cannot get any better in his eyes.

Alex decorated the paper and then helped me wrap up the gift. Then he decorated some more.

It was really windy and everything was blowing away so Guy moved their car to try to block the wind. It helped a little! It was nice because the wind kept the bugs away.

We couldn't keep the kids away from the water. It was colder than last time we went so at least they weren't trying to get into the water.

We had tacos in a bag for dinner. The kids went off to play again and Larissa (Wyatt's mom, and party thrower extraordinaire), Abby, and Maggie started putting together the cattails.

Alex found a dead crawdad and carried it around. It smelled really bad.

The kids came back around for cake. Alex and Edison each had three cake pops.

Alex and Edison didn't catch any fish this time. They didn't mind though. They would fish into a swimming pool and still be happy.

We left just a few minutes after sunset. It was so dark without a fire going so we all headed out.

The boys loved their party favors and played with them for hours the next day. I almost bought this for Wyatt for his gift but decided on something else instead. That would have been really embarrassing!

And for a little flashback to the last time we went to Blacktail Dam. I was so sad that we didn't have any pictures of Alex catching his very first fish. It turns out that Maggie did take pictures of it! I am so happy!
