Preston's 5th birthday was a big hit with the inhabitants of bikini bottom. It was filled with lots of under the sea fun. We feasted on Crabby Patties and SpongeBob Macaroni and Cheese. We raced to build the fastest crabby patty and had a crab walk relay. The kids also got a little crazy making their very own "sponge"Bob. I love the creativity. And ended the party with the many faces of spongebob. Happy birthday to my amazing little butter. We love you!
Birthday Party...To celebrate all the girls' birthdays. We decorated cupcakes, had a gift exchange, played party games, sang Happy Birthday to everyone and broke open a pinata.
Under the Sea...The girls created sea shell friends, made sea (lava like) bottles, enjoyed "fish" sandwiches, goldfish and swedish fish for lunch and went on an undersea treasure hunt.
Nature day... Painted and decorated bird houses, painted rock ladybugs, ate a butterfly wrap for lunch and finished off the day by making their own trail mix. YUM!
You know I can't pass up blogging about a great party so these go in for highlights of summer too. First is a baby shower that my great friends threw for me. We went to Thanksgiving point for dessert and had a fun night. Thanks to Harmony and Erin for the darling baby shower.
Then earlier in the spring, Harmony and I hosted a baby shower for Emily. It was so fun to plan a baby girl shower. It was cute and everyone had a great time.
I feel like I should try to catch up on all the blogging I haven't done, but there is no way that will ever happen. So here are a bunch of pictures from our summer. This will be one of my longest posts since pictures are worth 1000 words and the great part is you won't have to read all those words. (I'm not one for reading). Enjoy our summer!
Dane's Birthday at Cowabunga Bay
We had the park to ourselves for the first hour. It was a little chilly but the water was like a bathtub so no one even noticed the temp. They all had a great time.
Happy 10th birthday Dane! We love you!

Maggie's 12th Birthday
A trip to Lagoon and Late Night at Cowabunga
I was just too big and pregnant and tired and hot to do anymore than this.
Happy birthday to Julie who shares the same birthday as Maggie and Calvin whose birthday is 2 days later. Oh wait I did do something else. We went to lunch at Dear lizzie (the cutest store and restaurant ever) where the girls tried on prom dresses and then headed to Nordstrom for their first Mac makeover. Before
Oh and she got her first phone and texted me all night from her bedroom. She's one happy tween!
