party for 7

Turning seven that is…

I spent an evening last week knotting strips of scrap fabric on to a piece of twine.

Lulu wanted a camp theme so we set a plan for an afternoon in the backyard with a tent full of balloons and games like bocce and basketball.  Then it turned out to be the hottest and most humid day we’ve had this year.  We still had the tent, but went with a water fight to try to cool off.
Then they painted birdhouses.

They decorated bangle bracelets made from popsicle sticks. (here they are undecorated)

They made paper fortune tellers and signs for their rooms.

We had a sundae bar with all the fixin’s along with cupcakes.

After all of that, they each went home with their own hobo bindle filled with goodies…

…and I slumped into a chair and didn’t move for hours.

what do you think?
