Project 365 - Day 174
Y am I so tired? Oh I know, its been a crazy day!!!
This morning it started with Ariel's last day of school. Sniff! I took her picture by the door, much like I did that first morning. I can't believe its been a year already. Xander was just a newborn when we took Ariel on her first day, haha. She is growing into such a beautiful little girl, we love you sweetie!
I had made my last batch of cupcakes for this year and went crazy, a beach bear party! Complete with icing bathing suits... yeah, even I was kicking myself about doing that. If you are wondering how... a toothpick and a good hour of time. Whee! The water icing was a happy accident. I made the icing too runny, but in the end it looked more like water than I expected, so a nice surprise.
It was fun to watch Ariel sing her little songs for us, then get her diploma for a year well done! She loved the pinwheel she got too... even some bubbles and stickers!
The group gift of the mugs and flowers were given and the party started. Lots of yummy food, the kids had a blast and Xander was crawling everywhere. When things were wrapping up, Ariel went and gave her little craft she had made, a flower using her hand prints and feet to make a flower that said - Thanks for helping me grow! Her picture was in the middle of the flower so it was pretty cute. We also had gotten these cute little chocolate apples from Purdy's. They were adorable, wrapped in red foil with a stem. Ack! Loved them!
We then were off after class to a birthday party! It was so hot out that by the time we arrived we were a pool of sweat... lovely eh? Xander had fallen asleep, so Ariel played and I got to visit with the other moms. We had lunch, not that we needed it, and once the gifts were opened we came home. Ariel was zonked and hot, so I set up the pool on the deck.
It was around that time that Dad came over to watch the kids while I took off to register Ariel for her ballet classes. Miss Julie asked where Ariel was and I said relaxing in her pool... where I would have loved to be too. Gosh it was hot today... kinda felt like SUMMER!?! Crazy, haha. Soooooooooo, the day is over, we had sliders and fries for dinner and now I am going to put my feet up and finish reading my book for my book club this Friday. Yep, I am in a book club!!! I am so excited. Hee.
