Here's Sara with her camo gear!

Singing happy birthday!
It was my mom's actual birthday so we sang to her too!

Levi about to enjoy his "camo" cupcake

I remembered after we already sang and the kids had gotten the cupcakes that I hadn't taken a picture of the tank cake...Sara did a great job decorating it!

Cameron with one of his new guns

Cameron hitting the tank pinata

Because the tank was so full of candy, the loop to hang it up broke....I just let some of the little ones use the pull Craig is shaking out the candy collecting candy
Later on...some started a football game

Touchdown! Great catch Isaac!

I thought this one turned out cool!

Levi & Miriam playing with the party favors

I didn't do so well with the pictures...I couldn't get my setting right and I forgot to take pictures of a lot of things. We stay up so late the night before the party getting ready that I'm usually worn out before the party starts and I just want to sit and visit. I hope some of my other "shooters" got some better ones.
