the luau that wasn't...





Ever since the birthday issue of American Girl magazine arrived in our mailbox, Harmony has wanted a luau on the beach. And living on an island, doesn't make sense? The perfect place right? Well maybe not during the rainy season...

The kids and I had been inside cleaning all morning. Ben made a Home Depot run, and as he was coming inside he said, "you do realize that it has been raining all day don't you?" I was like uh no I hadn't. I went out to pick up the cake and there were black clouds over our house.My short little drive to the commissary it started to pour again. And it didn't stop.

There was no way we could have it at the beach, and so I hurried home and called all the parents and told them we were going to have the party at our house. Luckily, I remembered almost everyone and so no one was driving around looking for us!

She had a lot of kids come and they ran around like crazy. She was absolutely spoiled rotten. We didn't have to many activities planned because the beach was supposed to be the entertainment! However, we did decorate flowers, and left Disney Channel on.

It was a lot of fun and the party actually flew by. So now we are not on birthday duty again until Febuary! Phew!
