Nothing says goodbye summer like a pool party and Popsicles on a hot day. So to celebrate the last lazy days of summer, I invited the whole gang over for some wet fun.
The stage was set for splashing. Well-stocked with water squirters, a slip n slide and a sprinkler there were plenty of options for water play. This party was more about activities than decorations (for once).
But the biggest draw was, of course, the pool.
At some point, the kids even decided that snack time was better in the pool. Hey, it was a party!
After a light snack, and lots of play, it was Popsicle time. Cheers!
Florida’s weather is nothing if not unpredictable, so I grew a little nervous when a big, black cloud rolled in. Luckily, it was just a small shower (no thunder) that didn’t deter kids from their fun. The kids just took their Popsicles and headed back into the pool. They were happy to eat their Popsicles in the pool, in the rain.
When the sun came out a little while later, I decided it was time for my last surprise — Homemade Frozen Sidewalk Chalk Paint. Within minutes the sidewalk and kids were covered a rainbow of colors – with lots of happy giggles. It was something I totally made up, on a whim, but it was fantastically fun. (Will share the “recipe” soon.)
It was a great way to say goodbye to summer.
