Little Zarina stayed home from daycare yesterday (after a really, really long nap). To keep herself busy while mommy worked, she emptied out my purse and wallet, and displayed her creation to show me.
We survived hosting an outdoor party in 95 degree weather! Phew!
This year, Zach decided to only invite a few friends to his party (his BFF’s Alex, Logan, and Zach H.) so we decided to keep it low key at nearby Westlake Park. We also invited some family friends, cousins… and nannies! It was nice and “small” (at least compared to years past) so we got to catch up with everyone and the kids all got to play together. After burgers, hotdogs and cake, the kids hit a piñata, played with water guns, and enjoyed some (pedialyte) Popsicles to cool off.
I have to admit, this was one of the most challenging themes: Little Einsteins. Everything was discontinued, and toys on eBay were in the $40 range – crazy! Thank goodness for Google Images. It was a super fun day, despite the heat.
Our traditional firework display – kids were so excited / funny thing was they remembered the product names from last year e.g. Purple Rain. Zachary and Zoey even chose some classics; picolo pete, jumping jacks, snakes, … grand finale was a new product called “neon guy” that actually smiled while lit.
