Our summer has been so fun! This past weekend we had our daughter's 6th birthday swimming party. Her kindergarten teacher came with her boys and Arianna was SO happy! She had a blast. After the swim party we let her have 3 friends stay over and we had a 'spa' themed sleepover. Oatmeal facials with cucumbers, pedicures and made our own lip gloss and bath bombs. And slime...not so spa-like but so cool! They also wanted a dance party and to dress up and put on a play for my husband and me.
The girls had a blast. I told them to play a silly game and whoever fell asleep first, they put stickers on their face. All of them giggled over this. Arianna didn't quite understand (or maybe she did!) and she and her friend Analeigh, put stickers on every one who fell asleep before they did. The next day, Arianna was last up so Analeigh put stickers all over Arianna's face. Then, at 8am they all wanted to swim. Hope we created some fun memories for them! I took lots of snapshots of the event for us to remember it.
I believe so many of my childhood memories are preserved not in my mind, but in the photos I see from the events. It's not about the camera you use, but it's so important to actually take these everyday photos and then to PRINT them.
