{ Celebrations } Addyson's Splash Bash!

I watched Miss Addysons Mommy plan this party for many many months. I was so excited to see the final result and what an amazing one it was! This party was so so fun, cool, and summery. What is summer for though right?!

The kids had an amazing time in the water at the Splash Pad and we had just as much fun watching!


The decor was pretty self explanatory. Flip Flops, beach balls, etc all in bright colors!
What a better way to celebrate a summer birthday than with traditional summer food! The menu included:
* Hot Dogs with all the toppings ( Chili, cheese, onion, ketchup, mustard... you get the idea right?) * Baked Beans * Chips in different flavors * Summer decorated cookies

Can you say ah-mazing?! The cake was just that! Beach shapped with a beach ball on top! Stunning! Not to mention- delish! What a fun idea for a summer birthday party. Kuddos to Addysons Mommy for such an awesome time!

It's also great for times when we wanna take the kids on a min vacay for a night or a few days, but don't want to travel too far, which is just what we did this week.

We decided (since lets face it, it was a holiday weekend) to leave about 8. We wanted to get there early enough to get a good spot, both parking and the beach. Traveling to the beach is way different nowadays compared to when Jason and I used to go. We'd grab a pair of towels and hit it. Now we have chairs, extra towels, extra clothes, snacks, cooler, toys, umbrella, cameras, hats/sunscreen... Shall I go on?! Nah you get the picture. So we hit the beach about 9:15, loaded up with sunscreen ( I will let you in on a secret for those of you t…
