I don't know if you've heard, but Colorado has been in a drought this summer. Just 2 days ago it was like 103 degrees. We need rain-but seriously, we didn't need a torrential downpour 20 minutes into the party. Our house is tiny, our yard is huge-you do the math. Cozy was fine though, we were shoulder to shoulder with people we love-and missed some of you who we love who couldn't make it (couldn't find a boat in time, probably).
The girls asked for a pinata for their party, of course. On a hot tip from Julia on where to get an affordable pinata, I went to Save-a-Lot. Check out the selection:

Then we had cake. Dora Princess for Grace and Tinkerbell for Ruby.
