Emily's birthday party ~ finally!

Our summer can officially come to a close, now that we've enjoyed a late summer 'party weekend' to celebrate Emily's birthday! Our 'getting oh, so grown up' 11 year old was able to have a girly sleep-over and crafting time with her closest "gang of friends" . . . which we wrapped up with a "purple party" (involving several more friends). She topped off the weekend with a sleep-over with her cousin, Hope. The weather was perfectly cooperative, the tie-dye experiment was successful, the ice cream cake was quickly devoured and the entire weekend was lots of fun! We were reminded once again how much we appreciate Emily's great taste in the friends she chooses . . . such a neat collection of girls! (and boys, but mostly girls!)
