On Sunday evening we had oodles and oodles of kids in our backyard for a party in which my kids could
play and laugh with the friends that have made their lives so wonderful these last four years.
It was bittersweet ….
we loaded up on the Izze’s……..
and stocked up on the 15 cent goldfish from the pet shop for a ball toss in which some of the kids
took home a little keepsake from the party.
I didn’t promise that any of the fish would live though….since we lost a few of them during the day…
but the winners were ecstatic to have won anyway.
a balloon toss kept kids cool along with the sprinklers going …..
lots and lots of popsicles.
this next set of photos was one of the highlights of the evening…..
because at some point….and i don’t exactly when….
but there was a little accident on my picnic table.
Three adult friends were sitting there when the seat broke and came crashing down….
but i do believe that a few of the girls were boot camp girls…
and so my mind was made up that i shouldn’t be going to bootcamp anymore.
Don’t you think?
Thank you….i agree as well.
Sharon had fun sitting on the broken bench for photos…..but all the girls promised me that they were
not dancing on it…and that they were not being over served on the wine.
Uh huh….yup……i know what happens when you mix wine with popsicles.
for some reason bryan and i didn’t get any photos of us together….
but we had lots with other people.
Sorta like swinging but without the hassle.
and who knew that holding two glasses of wine is better than one.
and even though most of the night was filled with laughter…
and blowing bubbles with friends….
there were a few tears…
from me of course….always me.
This is our last week here….but the party with all the kids and all the friends….
just proves to me that they will forever be in our hearts.
