“End of Summer” party…

Really it’s not the end of the summer but since school starts up next week it’s the end of summer vacation so each year I try and do something big for my kids. We’ve had parties at the park, we’ve gone to the zoo, we’ve gone swimming and we’ve had parties here. I was told this years party was the best yet but they said that last year with our Candy Land party.

This year our theme was Red, White and Blue. Yep, just the colors. We thought of many different things but we kept coming back to this. So today we tie dyed, played balloon wars, and a game called telephone. Then they played with Mike and the fire hose while I fixed lunch. Then to end we had dunking for apples in the pool. There was 12 kids and 4 adults. Got pictures, wanna see?

The kids were my daycare kids, my cousins little ones, my friend and her little ones and of course Mike. It was great.

I love the pics everyone looks so busy having such a good time. It's a blessing to have an occupation you are passionate about and this way it never feels like "work" and in your words and illustrations it shows you are loving what you do. Thanks for sharing and see ya next post.
