Ok, so we did just go home at this point...I was out of ideas. But, like I mentioned yesterday, I knew I needed to pull it together.
And so, we held our first official summer tea party and game afternoon.
I sold the idea to them and they seemed just a bit excited about it...
They didn't even care that we did pink lemonade instead of tea. Even Ella, who is quite particular about these things. "You can't call it a tea party if we don't have tea, Mom..."
I think I could put pond water in these glasses and the kids would drink it...they LOVE drinking out of the glasses. Of course, I reserve them for the specialist of occasions. And a diabolical flop like the one we'd experienced definitely qualified.
The first winner. He makes a very pretty pretty princess, no?!
Winner number two. He knows how to catch some fish.
Winner number three. It was memory, so...duh, of course Ella won it. She has a memory like an elephant.
And me. Winner number four. I kicked some candyland bootay.
Thank goodness for an afternoon salvaged!
