groovin' into summer vacation

on the last day of school,
we dressed up the barn a bit for an end of year dance party!
pizza, watermelon, doritos and popsicles were served.
oh how i wish i had a picture of the entire crew that day...
i think i counted 75 kids, mamas and babes celebrating, munching, 
running through the sprinkler and grooving into summer vacation.
so so fun!

i think i can predict many more dance parties in our future...
these people have moves i tell you...moves!
until next year...happy summer vacation sweet friends!

5. my chariot...ha!
6. garden treasures
