Costume Party??!!??

IMG 0515Every year, my folks (read Daddy) throw a big party for July 4th. It’s huge. Really. We are the guests, LOL! They grill hot dogs and hamburgers and fill up a couple of pools for the kids, and we all have a great time. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the kids look forward to it from one year to the next. In fact, here is a picture I took of Drama yesterday. You will note the bathing suit and the water toys, right? It was, according to my trusty calendar, only the 16th of June. She put on this get up when my mom arrived with the butter beans (see below), and declared herself ready for the party. She stood there forever, ya’ll, holding those toys wearing that bathing suit, “ready to go”. We had to take hourly laugh-at-Drama breaks.

See, he’s very tall, and quite thin, and he could carry this suit off perfectly! I can almost hear them asking Mama where Daddy is, while “Uncle Sam” stands there grilling good things to eat, smirking.

Of course, then I had to look at some other costumes, too, since we have lots of birthdays, and they have costume and party supply packages, which make themed parties so easy! I could totally see Diva rocking that 70s metallic swirl jumpsuit, yk? Shhh. Don’t tell her about it. She’s had a party for the past several years, and this year, we’re keeping it real low-key, with just a movie. Besides, we all have to hurry up and get our swim suits on for the big party at my parents. It’s only 18 days away!
