This past Saturday afternoon was our annual neighborhood pool party. This is the BIG event that everyone looks forward to and I was so excited to organize it this year. As head of our social committee, it was a bit overwhelming, but I had some great ladies help me who had a bit more experience than I did .
It started off unbearably H-O-T!!! Hubby and I were not sure HOW we would be able to actually stay for it, let alone set up, grill and have fun. We kept jumping in and out of the pool, trying to keep our core temps under control.
Just before the grill were lit, the thunder and clouds rolled in. No rain fell, THANK GOODNESS but the sun went away and out came a breeze which made the afternoon just PERFECT!!!
Everyone brought yummy sides and desserts to share and our HOA Social Committee provided the hot dogs and hamburgers! The kids LOVED the slide and quickly discovered how quick they could slide down if they were all wet from the pool first!
The kids were banned to the kiddie pool during set up, so hubby and I could get things going. THey enjoyed it though!!!
Once dinner was eaten and dessert was feasted on, we headed to the pool and relaxed with our neighbors.
Yes, thats my Old Navy bag. I LOVE it for some strange reason... the turnout was great!
By 8p.m I was DONE!! I was tired, the kids were MORE than needing to go home and sleep off that sugar rush and my poor feet and legs hurt like the dickens...
But it was a success, clean up was done quickly and by 9 p.m we were all home, washed, showered and relaxing in bed. ( or at least I was.) My big comfy bed never felt so good. I dozed off to the lights of my tv and was fast asleep.
