Let’s Flamingle to a 5th Birthday Swim

You are thinking, hmmm…didn’t the girls just turn 6…  Yep, that’s right, and I completely forgot to post pictures from their 5th birthday swim.  A friend of mine reminded me of this recently, and well…thanks Mandy for the reminder.

A lot of life has happened over the past 12 months, so we’ll just call this a catch up blog post 🙂  We just had a few girlfriends over to swim, but I can never resist a reason for cupcakes and a couple of decorations.

These sweet friends are keepers, and even though we’re going in lots of different directions for school soon, we love them so much.

Cute Mud Pie flamingo swimsuits make pool time fun!

All pink snacks and tacky plastic flamingos make the perfect, quick table setting and yard decor.

I made these flamingo embellishments with popsicle sticks, free printables, pink feathers, and hot glue.  So simple and saved a fortune by buying simple strawberry cupcakes.

Ribbon makes everything prettier.

And lastly a little pink welcome for our friends.  Pink boa wraps, with tulle along the edge, hot glued to round frames made the simplest DIY wreath.

The days can sometimes feel long, but the weeks and months are short.  They are growing up so quickly, but each season seems to get sweeter and sweeter.  Grateful for these precious gifts!

My best to you.
