Ethan's Turning THREE // Pool Party Ideas

Did I read that right...THREE?!  How is possible that my little baby is turning THREE?!  So nuts!  

Being a little summer baby, we love hosting a party in our backyard {you can check out his FIRST and SECOND party here}.  After last year's party...when most of the toddlers ended up in the "fishing hole" pool, I knew I wanted to do a pool party theme for his third birthday!

Now, of course, California has been going through a major drought, so it doesn't quite seem right {even if Tahoe is a Nevada watershed}, so I may be making some tweaks, but overall, I still think a backyard party will be fun...and probably one of the last years we can get away with it since I'm guessing the majority of his parties will be at the beach in the future.

My original vision had kiddie pools galore, sprinkler toys, slip 'n slides and more!  Now, I think I'll limit the kid pool to one, have a sand box, bubbles and maybe even have some water guns.  But it should still be a fun time!  I found more ideas on Pinterest...check out my birthday board for more ideas!

Can't wait!
