Ok so this is late too... but again just got the pics in the computer to work. (well finally hooked up the laptop instead of the desktop. My camera cord doesn't want to work, so I have to put the actual sd card in the computer, anyway...) Here is the background... We couldn't decide for Izzy's 7th birthday party what kind of party we wanted. We were going to do all these different themes then finally after much deliberation and much internet shopping and weighing the costs we decided on a Luau Party. It was awesome!!!
Andy built a Tiki bar, yes a Tiki bar where we set all the food and drinks. It even has a fan in the ceiling to cool off the person serving behind it. Dad and Ryan while cleaning an apartment found a set of unfinished cornhole gamey things, so we snagged Jenrie and she painted us 2 Tiki god heads on them, free hand I might add!!! Sick just sick!!!, Mom and I made the invites, mostly Mom, I just cut and glued. The kids ate (so did some of the parents, we had the trampoline obviously, the cornhole game- which the kids had teams. We had a Pinata, because we can't have a party without one, and a mega slip n slide. (2 of them put together going down the big hill to the right of our house. The kids spent most of the day doing that, so the other games were unneeded obviously, because what else do you need on a hot day other then candy, cake, hamburgers and a hose? Add the trampoline and you have some very hapy and tired kids, regaurdless of how much sugar you have just packed into them!!! Its a great thing. Oh and Andy and J also made a surf board and painted it, duh! you saw the pic.... anyway it was awesome. We had a total of about 15 kids come and go throughout the 1-4 pm time period. It was good. Izzy was happy and we had a blast and of course Andy got all kinds of compliments on his hut, of which I have no good pics at the moment so I will take one and post it later! This was her party with friends, Held on May 30th, her actual birthday we as a family, including Ti_Chi and Chi-Chi (Andy's parents) went bowling. And David pulled a muscle and was in a sling and physical therapy for the whole month of June! Izzy was very happy and had a wonderful birthday!!
