summer smorgasbord

 

A little catch up on the summer fun we’ve been having so far…..

Mia and Sophie had “Bring a Friend” night for their last dance class.
Mia chose to bring her cousin Olivia & Sophie chose our neighbor’s little girl Lily.

After dance, Olivia spent the night for Mia’s very first SLUMBER PARTY!
Root beer floats were on the menu.

Along with a scavenger hunt, or two.
Both Steve & I made one for all the girls & then they picked who had the best one.
I may or may not have won…..Dum Dum Suckers in the mailbox for the final stop helped me seal the deal.

The girls (along with Booty cat if you can see her!) posing with their prizes in front of our house.

Next stop. Ella & Tyler's birthday celebration at Haley’s house….. aka NEVERLAND RANCH.
Bounce house, huge new play set, trampoline, some kind of carnival car that I was driving around all day……

tent, pool……

outdoor TV hanging above the outdoor fireplace to watch the Cardinal’s game….

snow cone machine, cotton candy machine & even a home made Carnival Photo Booth!
Now you see why I nicknamed Haley’s house NEVERLAND and why Sophie
asks, “Can I live here?” whenever we visit.

Here I am driving the car around with Gracie, Ella & Mia.
I loved this thing!

Steve and Sophie posed for me by Ella and Tyler’s new play set.

Ella looked so adorable running around in her new cape I made her.

Sophie & Mia inhaled a few pounds of cotton candy.

And last weekend it was time to party at our house for
Mia’s 6th birthday (Taylor Swift style) & Gracie’s 2nd birthday (Ducky fun!)
More pictures coming soon…….

I had to incorporate the guitar ribbon somehow so I made this fun skirt for Mia to wear!
I will have a tutorial coming up in the next few days on how to make one of your own. 
It was so easy and super cute on her!

Hope your summer is a smorgasbord of fun, just as ours has been so far!

The ribbon skirt is adorable! That is one crazy big back yard. What a fun party though. :)
