|For some reason I didn't remember to take pictures until after the party was over. Here is my hard working husband tearing things down in the yard.|
We also had one of the kids (a very good friend of my son's this year)RSVP that he was coming and I called the dad to make sure he knew how to get to our house, but on the day of the party he was a no-show. My son wanted me to call him, but I didn't want to pry. I'm just hoping that everything is all right.
|This is the spider man bounce house we rented. It was a hit despite the soaring temperatures.|
|My daughter decided to get in some solitary bouncing while all the boys were elsewhere!|
|Here are my three monkeys jumping around before we let the air out of the house.|
|Here are the last of the party goers winding things down with a game of beach bingo-we needed to cool off in the air condition after being outside all day.|
We did a little more water balloon games than we had originally planned to keep the kids cool (and the water balloon toss turned into an all out war of boys against the only two girls), but all in all I thought things went well. I asked my son to rate the party on a scale of 1-10 and he gave it a 9 (where I lost that one point I don't know-LOL!)
Now it's time for Succinctly Yours, another writing meme that piggy backs on the idea of Susan of the Stony River Blog. Grandma Goulash posts a picture and you are to write a 140 character or word story about it. You can also use the word of the day in your post if you wish. Once again it's late, but I wanted to quickly get this one in...
This week's word is lavender. Here is the picture and my poem (yes, poem-I couldn't think of a story this week.)
Two geese by a pond
Pensive and still
One jumps in
The other never will
Alone on the bank
Time slips by
One still sits
But now asks why
(138 characters with a lot of chopping and no punctuation, but what the heck, right? Poetic license...)
This picture made me think of taking chances in life-I don't want to be that goose left on the bank (and I hope you don't either!) Can't wait to see what everyone else wrote-I'll come by tomorrow.
