Birthday Bash at the Beach


Tomorrow is Meenie's 4th birthday. Today we invited a few friends to meet us at a local lake for some summer fun. While planning this, I never thought it would end up to be the hottest day of the year (so far). Those of you in New England, I don't think I need to tell you how HOT it was today. Those of you not here, it was Freakin' Hot! Around 95 with high humidity. Thankfully up at the lake, it was cooler. Plus you had the water.

Anyway, we arrived and served up cake first. I figured it would be best as I didn't want the pudding to sour. Then we basically hit the water.

I brought sun hats for the kids to paint, but it was just too hot. So I sent them home with the moms and they can paint them later. I also gave each kid a new pail and shovel, sunblock and swim goggles. There were three families and 15 kids total. One other family had a last minute emergency so they couldn't make it. All in all, it was alot of fun!

Yup. The rocks were chocolate coated and tasted like M&M's. The Sea shell and Starfish were sugar.
