There’s that peacefulness before a party, before the guests arrive, when things are finally in place.
The dollarstore had loads of Hawaiian goodies.
The surfing station was ready to go.
The decorations were hung, and then came the best part: the kids.
I didn’t get a lot of photos without faces, but you can just imagine the splashing, laughing, bouncing on the trampoline, playing pass the coconut, and here’s some hula lessons by the “hula master” himself. Oh and we did the limbo too.
There was a “luau lunch” on planks of wood with tablecloths over top. The kids sat on the grass. The kids used toothpicks to skewer ham, cheese pineapple and maraschino cherries. There was also tropical fruit, including papaya, mango, honeydew and cantaloupe.
Mark made a volcano cake which erupted with jello mixed with lemon juice and baking soda.
Happy fifth Birthday to you, our sweet Maggie girl!
