What started on July 6 didn't wrap up until July 18!
The 12 days of birthday, since Julia was turning 12.
-Just worked out that way-
Her party with friends was a pool party.
Not just a little either.
While I won't complain because some of our country is in a very serious drought,
I will say that another time for this onslaught of water would have
certainly been more convenient!
Luck was on my side, though and at 6:15, the rain stopped.
Oh, everything was soaked and a real
muddy mess, but we still got to swim.
The rain held off until the last partier was picked up about
9:15... and it started again.
In the meantime, we had a great time!
|We used pink and orange for|
Julia's colors. I made this
invitation using "Life's a Beach"
|Every girl got a monogrammed pail (but of course, this is the South)|
with her supper in it. Thanks to Mamma for helping with the menu of
ham and turkey pinwheels (Summer issue of Celebrate), goldfish,
fruit kabobs, cake and butterfinger ice cream.
|Waiting on the rain to end.|
