We fixed that by celebrating her half birthday yesterday.
The weather has been gorgeous all week, and we lucked out again for the party.
First, we had a delicious lunch with this salad made from fresh spinach, locally grown tomatoes, our own basil, and some chevre.
The party's theme was Hawaiian, and everyone came wearing flipflops. Leis were mandatory.
We played a lot of games, one of them being flip-flop walk; due to the uneven number of guests, Tall Son was a good sport and got in on the act. It was a relay race where you had to put seashells on top of your feet and walk to a certain point and run back!
The half-birthday girl had a lot of fun, and I am so glad we had this party for her. I did her a lot of good to have all the attention on her for a day.
Tomorrow morning, we leave for Rochester, NY at 6 am.
