Wow! What a full day. I am amazed I am still awake, but then again, I took a long nap along with everyone else in our house today. We woke up early to start getting ready for Leila's 7th birthday party. Her birthday isn't actually until July 4th, but her party is always early or late because of July 4th celebrations. I planned it to be an outdoor karaoke and water slide party, but we weren't sure what the weather was going to do. It was supposed to rain, it looked like rain, but it didn't rain until after the party. YEAH! I was SO thankful for that! I had hired someone to come and do karaoke. Guess what? He didn't show. A flat tire, apparently. So, I was scrambling to do faux karaoke. The girls still had fun, but the party planner in me was not pleased. Although the party didn't go exactly how I had planned it, everyone seemed to have a great time. We had two tired kids and three very tired adults after the house had cleared. (Thanks, Mom, for your help!) After a much-needed nap, we headed to Leila's favorite restaurant and then Nolan and I took Leila to see Kung Fu Panda. (Two thumbs up, by the way.)
And to top off our great day, I received a very nice surprise. A very sweet lady nominated my blog for an award. Thanks, Krista! I'll do a post about this later. Super busy day tomorrow, too - church, church picnic and evening pool party, but soon, my friend! Thank you!
