Dr. Seuss Birthday Party

My Joslyn turned 7 on the 24th! We spent the day at Disneyland with her brother too! We were able to experience some new adventures there, and coming from people who have had passes for the past 5 years that's quite a big deal. We finally went on the canoes that you paddle around the Pirate's Lair (formerly known as Tom Sawyers Island). Joslyn did great, Holden tried for awhile but kept splashing his sister (he didn't really understand that you only paddle one way) and the lady in front of me was out of sync and her paddle ended up on top of mine, for the majority of the ride! 

Sunday the 26th we celebrated in a Dr. Suess fashion with friends and family. At a beautiful park in Huntington Beach...Huntington Beach Central Park. We played Sneetch Tag (like regular tag, except everyone who gets tagged gets a star sticker on their belly, and then attaches themselves to a chain of " it" people. The last one to get tagged gets a prize!), we went on a hike to look for the Lorax (my husband went ahead of us to hide him), we took the Lorax back to the party and played pin the mustache on the Lorax, and then we had a Cat and the Hat piñata.

I made the piñata myself with cardboard and crepe paper. We went through about 15 kids and the darn thing would not my husband beat it to a pulp and candy flew:)

Has it really been 2 months?

I have been wringing out every last.drop of summer! The fair, the beach, the pool, frozen yogurt, eating out (a lot), birthday parties, swim lessons, camping, business convention,  berry picking....oh my goodness that is not even all of it! I have a draft list of partial posts up the wazoo, plus a running log of future posts in my brain!
My goal is to do 2 posts a week, more will end up going up this month so we can play catch up!
Since I am a one track mind kind of gal, I am super focused on my daughter's 7th birthday party. We are starting off the weekend with Disneyland on Friday (her actual birthday), and on Sunday we will celebrate with friends and family! Can you guess are theme?

So anyway, what have you been up to this summer?
