Surprise Sweet Sixteen

July 17, 2011 § 2 Comments

Today was Daughter’s surprise sweet sixteen party.  It wasn’t an extravagant affair, just some family and friends over for a swim and a BBQ.  Good thing too, it was sweltering hot today and without air conditioning the pool was a blessing.

The surprise part was more difficult to pull off because when Hubby and Daughter pulled into the driveway, immediately she recognized my sister’s car and knew people were here.  That’s her and her two boys in the pool in the pic above.

To top it off, her best friends were 2 hours late due to unforeseen and unpreventable circumstances.  Bless them, they showed up despite the rough day they had.  Still, it was a surprise for Daughter that everyone was there just for her and that there were presents and cake to boot.

It’s been such a busy birthday that I haven’t even had time yet to lament about how my baby is now 16.  Be warned that there maybe a follow up post about that.

We just had some nasty wind and a brief thunderstorm so I’m going to go check out how the trailer held up. Yep, any excuse at all to go play.  😉

    I do miss the pool that we had for 3 years at our last house. With kids with summer birthdays, things were so simple – pool party after pool party.

    Hope that the toy was nice and dry inside 😉

    Cate – It really is a blessing and with all the kids in our family birthdays’ between mid July and early September, it really is handy.

    And yep, she was dry as a bone. Woohoo! 😀
