Dare # 36

Wow, what a weekend! It was a weekend full of activity but before I share that with you here is this week's dare....

Dare #36

Buy a Popsicle or freezie sometime this week and eat it. Nothing says summer then cooling of with a nice cold treat.

So, like I said it was a super busy weekend. It all started on Friday which I ended up taking off. Ryan and I were hosting a pool party on Saturday and I spent all Friday shopping for the food and making the snacks.

On Saturday I woke up to the POURING rain! I was so discouraged. In a few hours people were suppose to be coming to enjoy the pool and it looked like a thunder storm was on it's way.

In the hopes of nice weather we continued to set it all up and finish the last details. The food was ready, the pool was ready and it was still raining.

About 1 hour before everyone arrived is when we saw our last drop of rain. The sun started to come out and dried everything up. It ended up being PERFECT.

We had such a blast. There was a driving contest, Texas horseshoes, basketball and lots of swimming. Many of our friends have kids and it was so great seeing the pool being used by little ones. There was lots of snack food, drinks, and later a BBQ. Also an awesome pool party themed cake made by Stacy (Hi Stacy!). Did I mention the weather ended up being awesome? I think I even got a bit of a tan.

Saturday night Ryan and I picked up 99% of the mess and so Sunday we enjoyed a relaxing day at home and a nap on the the couch for 3 hours.

Ryan and I can't wait to have everyone over again next year!

Have a great week!

P.S Flossing still sucks!


  1. It was a great time - and like you said the weather cleared up and I think some people even got sunburnt - that's you Jill!
    The kids had a blast for sure. Maddy was still asking about the pool party the next day! I left before my cake was even touched...hopefully someone had a piece! Can't wait for next babies and the little ones this year will be grown up!

  2. Yep - sunburnt! And it's a lovely zebra print. (I had way too many straps - lol!)

    Great time, thanks again for having us!!

    And Stace - I believe at least Lindsay had a piece of cake around 11 PM! LOL It looked too awesome to eat!!

  3. I sure did have cake! It was great! So did Phil and Mav (if thats how you spell it)

    It will be so neat to see how things change by this time next year. Can't wait for the 3rd annual pool party! Yes, yes Jill, I'm ALREADY looking forward to next year! :-)
