Summer Shindig

Our masquerade/Labyrinth/Midsummer’s Eve/fairy/birthday/wiknik party was a great success!  (Except for that weird 5 minute shower.)  Since Labyrinth is now owned by Disney (didn’t think of that, did you!?) this is a perfectly legitimate post. Midsummer Masque

We prepped for a long time.  The boys didn’t really help.

Some of the prep was really just hanging out laundry.  (The white was decorations.  The blue was actual laundry because the dryer is out.)

But it all came together.  By this I mean that we tossed everything on the tables at the last minute.

So that it would look good for that one picture.

Not that picture.

Um, no not that one…in fact, I only include this so you can admire my mask.

There.  Don’t we all look nice?

And then Mike broke out his new Labyrinth-inspired drink, the Peach Hallucination.

Yes, that is my birthday cake in the foreground.  Set to the perfect time.

And this is what happens when we start drinking before 4.

Maybe we should avoid cocktails in the future.

Inevitably, all parties turn into Star Wars reenactments.  This is also legit, though, because the cast is only one degree separation from David Bowie through the muppeteers.

Also, everyone likes light sabers.

Then, the dinosaurs decided to upgrade the fairy carriage into a remote controlled 4-wheeler. 2013 Summer 2 204

Rose played with bubbles.

Then, the boys turned the Watermelon Bash into the free-for-all sugar rush game.  In the background of this picture, my mom looking out the kitchen window shouting, “That’s a ten-dollar melon!”

But whatever, because you have no power over me.
