end-of-the-summer party.

I can't believe I had to write "end of summer" in this posting. It has blinked by, don't you think? Ethnie was invited to her friend Olivia's house, who lives down the street from us. She had a party celebrating being a big kid getting ready to go back to school. It was really cute and there were many neighbor kids there. Ethnie had a great time. Emmett was grumpy so Matt had to come over and pick him up. Ethnie and Olivia get along really well. Here are some pictures from the party:

Each child's name was written in chalk on the ground.

Favorite booth! I am a bit biased.

Ethnie's favorite part. She would have stayed in here all day.

"This is the best day ever!"

The best thing I ate this year! So good!

JUST in case.

Take 5.

Ethnie HATED this.

Matt made me go on this ride. I was mad at him because it was so scary.

Deep fried candy bar (three musketeers, here). I can handle sugar, but after two bites of this I was done.

Until next year!
