How we spent our summer vacation.

Last week we grabbed the grandparents and drove down to our favorite condo at Blue Mountain Beach.

We did lots of swimming and practiced our cannonballs.

We completely wore out the boardwalk with our wrinkly feet.

We played with our shell friends.

We almost lost Parker in the ocean (more than once).

We overindulged.  But it was worth it.

And I almost cried when it was time to come home.

Let’s PARTY.

Since THIS describes my life right now:

You KNOW that Parker’s 7th birthday party theme had to be this:

I have to say, I was a little worried about having the party at home, especially when it started pouring down rain 45 minutes before party time… of course it was AFTER I had sprayed the yard for mosquitoes and hung tons of paper streamers all over our deck (FYI – soggy streamers don’t look very festive).  Luckily the rain stopped just in time for me to drag out all of the tables again right before the boys arrived.  It wasn’t quite as easy as renting one of the popular places around town, but it sure was so much fun!  I think Parker enjoyed it even more because it was at our house.   The boys bounced on our old blow-up jumper, splashed around in Parker’s water table, played Lego Bingo (I printed it out for free… ask me if you want details), and got a huge kick out of the donut game.

And a quick game of Twister before the grandparents left the next morning was very entertaining, especially from my vantage point.  :)
