Callie's FAVORITE thing of the evening was jumping off the diving board. Jen would hold her hand as she walked up and then she'd just jump right off to me. All the way under. She'd wipe her hair out of her eyes, and then climb up and do it again! She LITERALLY must have done it 100 times. No kidding. I was worn out by the end of it- but she had a BALL!
Finally Callie got out of the pool (which meant I could get out!) and started "mowing" the pool deck!
Callie and Annalise followed each other around for a good bit of the evening!

The party was also to celebrate Justin (Andrea's husband) coming home from a recent deployment and then training in RI. My boys gawked at him all night. We had watched the national Memorial Day concert in DC on Monday night and so they were THRILLED to spend the evening with a REAL, LIVE soldier!!! He was great too - he tried to relieve me from swimming duty and take Callie in the pool and off my hands for a bit!
Andrea took care of Callie for me while I made a bathroom trip with one of my boys. Not sure why Callie was making such a face....
