Tie Dye Party

Jake, Jackson, Ava and Meg enjoying the tie dye party.

Henry, Ava and Meg swinging and eating popsicles. What a life.

I couldn't believe how everything just worked out - there was enough dye for all of the shirts (bought out the Wal-mart supply), our day was beautiful and we had almost 40 people there!
After working out the kinks, I think next year's party will be pretty seamless. We talked about doing three stations, including putting rubberbands on shirts, dying shirts (2 buckets each of red and blue) and a washing and drying station. Hopefully putting this on the blog will be my reminder.
I love the fourth of July. It's one of my favorite holidays. There's beautiful sunny weather and lots of parades and fireworks. This year we had a crab and shrimp boil. That will be replayed next year! It was so good!
