52 Week Challenge - Week 23

My finished project this week was to help prepare and put on the annual Beginning of Summer/Birthday Party for our youngest granddaughter. This early June tradition has become a favorite time to catch up with friends and family.

The giant waterslide was a big hit with kids of all ages
Preparations started way in advance with personalized invitations, and included yardwork, housecleaning, food preparation, and lots of helium balloons.

  We had volleyball, ladderball, horseshoes, trampoline, a pinata, and of course the water slide.

Food was yummy!

Presents bountiful.

And the company sublime.
Dressed in her jellyfish dress

As always, Aunt Karen made a birthday costume to fit the beach theme.  This time it was a beautiful jellyfish dress.  The party was extra special because all seven grandparents were able to attend.  One even flew in from Texas. 

Happy Birthday Jilly, and Happy Beginning of Summer to Everyone!

What project did you complete this week?  I can't wait to see.

Lets get busy,
