One Night, Two Parties...

Usually on a Saturday night we are doing...

well, not much.

Like last night for excitement the kids were riding their bikes through the sprinkler.  My new neighbor was out tending her lawn & I saw her and peeking over with just her eyeballs, I'm sure wondering what the rowdy bunch was up to now.  I yelled a greeting & she called back smiling, "I think it's awesome."  I think she was just glad we actually were watering our lawn!

But LAST Saturday...

ooooooo...did we have fun!!!
 
 
First, we were invited to the kids' party of the year...
 
Marble painting & spin art...

An Arcade Tent...

Even Swimming!
 
But the kids had crazy fun when they pulled out camo marshmallow shooters handmade for each kid!!!
 
 
4 for my family alone!
 
The girls posted up top to shoot
at the dozen boys running around below.
 

Roo just walked around eatin' the ammo :)
 
All too soon we left the kids with the sitters
& headed to my little sister's housewarming party!
 
It was decorated by
 

And was it ever fabulous! 
 
 


















It felt so ritzy that I almost felt like a movie star :)
but then I looked down at my hands...


Okay, so I am not movie star material...
I'm okay with that...
and glad that it soon got dark so
no one could see my spin art hands.





And as night fell...it just got more beautiful.






 
Too soon the clock struck "midnight"
& the Cinderella magic was gone.
 
Back to our own,
ride our bikes through the sprinkler on a Saturday night,
fairytale.
 
But these pictures are my glass slipper...
I'll always have them to remind me
of our magical night.
