Mia turns 8!

Mia turns 8!

Mia turned 8 on October 1st. It was the last day of school before fall break and it was a free dress day (meaning no uniform) for school. I brought her Chick-fil-a for lunch to the school. Here are a couple pics on her big day.

Since it was still warm on her birthday, we decided to have a hula, swim party. Everyone wore their swimsuits and got grass skirts and leis to wear. The grass from the dollar store skirts was all over my house by the end of the night, but girls loved them.

Here's a group shot of most of the girls. A couple of them came late. (l-r: Camilla, Ellie, Riley, Makell, Kinley, Mia, Maddie, Kylie, Tanner, Addi and Marlee)

Here's the group with Allee and Lia who came a little late.

Kylie decked out in her hula attire.

As the girls arrived, we got them all ready in their hula skirts and leis.

The limbo contest. Here is Addi looking good. I think she won.


Tanner just walked under the limbo stick.

Tanner and many leis!


Some of the girls decided to make their own little "oaisis" in the palm trees.

We BBQ'd for dinner.

We printed out group pictures of all of them and then they made and decorated frames to put them in.


We had cupcakes with cute little tropical umbrellas. The party was a success and they had a great time. Happy 8th Birthday, Mia!
