Carnival Party Success!

What a great time we had
at our birthday carnival party!

There are so many people
to thank for all of their
hard work. I could not have
done this by myself.
For instance, this ticket booth!
My Dear Hubs made it
using dumpster diving skills-
pulling plywood from the trash!
Even more amazing,
he whipped it together
the day before the party.

We used our canopy from the flea market
and created a concessions stand.

We had cupcakes and
ice cream, party hats ...
Games of all kinds

Penny Candy too!
(Note the chalkware puppy in the middle....
he was an actual carnival prize a long time ago!)
A prize table filled
with monkeys, gumball
machines, puzzles,
ribbon wands and more!
A big success and my favorite
part was the dance "zone!"
Do you remember
doing the hokey pokey,
the chicken dance, and the limbo?
If I couldn't remember how to
do them before, I sure remember now.
What fun!
Now, back to my regularly
scheduled life.
After a much needed rest!
