Plan B and a Birthday Party

At the beginning of summer, we planned to go to Yosemite with the Workmans this past week. Well August rolled around and schedules changed. So we opted for Plan B. Camping in the backyard. It was GREAT! The Workmans came over at 6pm and the dads' set up the tents. The kids played...and the moms got dinner ready. We ate our yummy dinner in the great outdoors. The Workmans have a fabulous garden and were so nice to bring some home grown corn and tomatoes. Jenni also made a yummy pasta salad and added some of her zucchini. We has burgers and hot dogs, lemonaide, and dutch oven peach cobbler. Everything was so tasty. After it got dark and a game of flashlight tag...we broke out the S'mores. So tasty! As we cleaned up a bit, Wayne ran home to get their telescope. He showed us Jupiter and 4 of it's moons. It was so cool. They were all lined up and if you looked really close you could see 2 rings around the planet. Our universe is so amazing. Then it was lights out. Of course the boys were so excited that they stayed up for a LONG time after. Brandon enjoyed scaring them and I have to admit it was kind of funny to see their tent roll over. We had such a great time. Thanks for coming, Workmans!

M was invited to a 'Doll' Birthday party. She wore a dress and brought her favorite doll, party instructions. She was so cute that I had to take a picture of her. M had a lot of fun with her friends and their dolls. So cute.

Thanks for letting M come to Eden's birthday party. I keep catching Aspen dressed up in the Sharpay costume and it puts me in fits of giggles. Seriously, that wig is a hoot!

I love camping in the backyard. We used to do that a couple times a year in Washington. No fun though when the sprinklers are left on.

You guys are too fun. That is such a good idea. (I do remember when Mary left her sprinklers on though... too funny) I'm glad you have such fun friends. I love the great sasha pose! It always makes pictures a bit more fun!
