Yesterday we celebrated Mini Me's birthday with a fun pool party. The party was so much fun that it went on for an extra hour with the guests, and then my kids played until well past midnight on this awesome 18 foot water slide that we rented from a local party place.
I admit, I didn't even know you could rent a water slide. I knew about the bounce houses, and I think this slide was actually at Hubby's work party this year, but I never dreamed that you could fit it with a water hose and turn it into a water slide. If you have a rental place in your town, it's TOTALLY worth the (slightly Large) expense to rent it.
It made having a party in this crazy heat we've been having, Bearable. It was supposed to be 92 yesterday with a heat index of 110 degrees. So nuts! It was so bad that our cupcakes were melting off the table.
Really crazy! But we had a good time and Mini Me had a wonderful birthday which made everything worth while.

Me and My Boys shared her Felt Headband Tutorial. This headband is so cute and easy. The "Drama Queen" loves wearing headbands to hold back ALL her hair (if you haven't seen...she's quite blessed in that department.) I just bought her a set of elastic headbands from Walmart. While they are cheap, they are pretty boring. I'm going to see about dressing them up with this cute DIY today. I'm sure we have some extra felt around here somewhere in some of her church clothes colors. She'll love both having a craft to do and looking cute after!
