First the local water park. (I thought it more important to supervise the kids than my camera.) The weather forecast was for "strong storms" the two hours we were there. It was gorgeous--and we had the place to ourselves! (Thank you God for swimming weather!!)
Next, home for pizza. She chose the table decorations (some assembly required, all by Bethany), and set the table. She even made colorful tropical shaped ice cubes. Then presents and cake. We combined a couple of cake ideas she liked, especially the volcano.
Then it was time for a movie, with popcorn and pajamas.
I couldn't imagine what I was thinking having eight kids with us for five hours, but it flew! The girl has a knack for planning.
Oh, how I thank the Lord for our sweet growing-up-way-too-fast girl!
