really f*cking hot here the last couple of weeks. Holy balls. So. Hot. Because my Dad was in town last weekend, we planned to have a little party. I decided to buy a kiddie pool to keep the kids occupied help us stay a bit cooler.
Why is it that our house is looking more and more like we have a million kids?!! Fortunately, we don’t have any pool toys so I just threw in a bunch of tupperware, a pasta strainer and measuring cups. And yes, we moved our dining table and benches outside, too! White trash style. PARTY TIME!!!
Before everyone arrived, we took a minute to take a couple of pictures with my Dad.
And we hung lanterns along the house! So festive…and they light up, too!
Of course we had food. We thought it was easiest to get take-out and decided to go with Veggie Grill!
We ordered all hail kale salad, sante fe chickin’ wraps, chickin’ wings and a lot of chips! It was so easy and really good. Everyone loved it…even the meat-eaters!
AND THEN IT WAS POOL TIME!
The kids were having so much fun that some of the adults decided to join them.
We only put our feet in because the water was really effing cold. When the kids finally got out, they were freezing! And so cute to cuddle with:
The bigger kids were pretty cute too.
It was bit too hot to roast marshmallows so we decided to go with popsicles!
The kids We all loved them!
I let the kids pick out which popsicle they wanted. There were red, orange and purple popsicles. I thought Kai and Kaz would pick red because it’s their favorite color. But once Elijah said he wanted an orange one, both Kai and Kaz said they wanted orange too. So cute!
It was such a fun day.
