Summer's 8th birthday!

I'm pretty sure we celebrated Summer's birthday for several days, ha! The Calhouns came into town and spent a couple of nights with us.  It was such a treat to have them with us.  The cousins have the most fun together! We have officially had all of our cousins in our home this summer.  I'm not sure it gets better than that! 
Friday morning, keeping our party of six tradition, we celebrated the birthday girl with doughnuts for breakfast! 
And then, we spent the day at the pool.  As we have been doing most days this summer.  Sigh.  It's been so great! 
We let the birthday girl choose where to eat supper, and she chose the Purple Cow.  We, along with the Calhouns, met up with Papa and Gigi for a yummy birthday supper.  The whole staff sang the birthday song to Summer, and she got a delicious purple malt for her birthday treat! 
She asked me if we could take our picture together.  So sweet! 
And then it was Daddy's turn.  
After supper, the Calhouns went home with Papa and Gigi for the night, and we headed back to our house to let the birthday girl open the rest of her presents.  
She got several books.  
And then, her big present that she had been begging for was a pair of Chacos.  We just so happened to find them on Amazon prime on super sale, so it worked out really well to surprise her!  Now, the rest of the crew wants some! Eeek! 
Saturday, we had Summer's birthday party at our house.  She wanted a Jamberry nail party, so we asked Aunt Cari sweetly if she would come do it for us.  
And Aunt Cari worked tirelessly on lots of little nails.
While she did the Jamberry wraps, Miss Katie (who came to visit all the way from Hattiesburg!) and I polished fingers and toes.  
It was such a fun party, and we were so thankful to Aunt Cari for her hard work and to all of our friends and family who came to help us celebrate.  
The girls enjoyed cookie cake, ice cream, and cheese balls! 
Summer and one of her favorite classmates from school.  
Story and Miss Katie.  We were so thankful and excited that they got to spend some time with us this weekend.  
Pretty jamberry nails!
Happy 8th birthday, Summer! We hope you enjoyed your super special day!
