I confess that we don't use our backyard nearly enough.
This summer is going to be different and on the *Quirky Summer Bucket List,
I wanted to kick off summer by planning a Hawaiian party for the family. Easy menu: ordering out for Hawaiian pizza and dessert was sprinkling macadamia nuts over ice cream! Easy peasy!

Because I had been to a fabric warehouse in Hawaii, I made outfits for the three Grands to wear at the party. (Going to this warehouse was a trip highlight and Carol told me as we entered, "I hate fabric stores," so I knew I had to be quick in 'n out - otherwise I'd have done some serious damage to the credit card.)

We played several games, but one of the favorites was the beach towel relay. M kept running off with the hat, lei and hair flower.

This is perhaps my fave picture below. Poor Jed with what I put him through on a regular basis!
