Aloha! I know we are well into October, and Halloween in on the radar…So…the only thing I can say is that I have to hurry and get this summer round up completed so I can delve into skeletons bones and black cauldrons!
The kids enjoyed the day show complete with colored fireworks and Mentos and Diet Coke explosions. D-lyn taught all the little girls Hulu lessons (after becoming a self-trained instructor via library videos) which they were head-over-heels for. There was also a lot of swimming, slip-and-sliding, chatting, eating, reminiscing, giggling, running, playing, laughing, chasing, movie watching, napping, game playing, fire work watching and more going on throughout the weekend. I can’t think of a more perfect way to have celebrated the 4th. (Although we all agree that for next year’s theme, we’re going to have to keep to the red, white and blue color scheme…makes things really feel more patriotic…naturally. Plans for a nautical/pirate 2011 4th of July are in the works…I mean, it just wouldn’t be an Allred party if we didn’t put a slant on it…right?).
