I am so very sorry that I have been gone for so long!
Thanks for all the positive comments on my haiku! First time for everything, as they say!
The Twilight Tiki Buffet was a blast! Everyone loved the wings, the salad, the shrimp cocktail, the heroes etc. The kids made the Smore's over the fire pit at about 11pm. It was fun! The kids played, the adults yakked and drank! lol The wiffle ball game was fun too! The kids lost to the dads 5-3! Very close! We even had some fireworks! The party finally broke up at about 12:30am. All our friends have since said that it was so much fun they can't wait to do it again!
Maybe we will do a Pre-School Twilight Buffet on Labor Day Weekend...we will see!
Sunday my cousin came up to visit for the afternoon before taking her son home. She came with her other son who is 8 years old, so the five kids ran around and played all day and then we all had a nice barbecue dinner of hot dogs and hamburgers before they headed out! My nephew had a great visit over the weekend and wants to do it again! I think I will wait a while on that one, though. lol
My hubby was great and took care of all the clean-up on Sunday while I visited with my cousin and dealt with the kids. I was tired from the late night and probably a bit too much Margarita. I was naughty and drank. Not good for my blood sugar, I know, but I didn't eat dessert. In my mind it was a fair trade!
Yesterday, the 4th, was parade time! The morning came early for everyone but we all shuffled out to the parade on time! Ds10 and hubby walked with the Cub Scouts and dd8 walked with her grandpa with the school float. They were celebrating 50 years this year. After the parade we went to the firehouse for a sprinkler wet down for the kids and free hot dogs and beer and soda. I ran into lots of friends and lots of old friends and neighbors I had not seen in a while which was very nice!
So that was that...
