Tuesday we celebrated the last day of 8th grade
with a party for Madison and some of her friends!

The evening included a cook out, bon fire and tie dye! 

My kids helped me drag the old farm tables
out of the "barn" and set them up under some trees!

I had just asked the girls
"who was excited school was over?"
Much rejoicing was going on!

We had a great time tie dying!

Each shirt came out so uniquely wonderful!

They had fun trying to get a running and jumping photo!

All the makings for smores and a cup of glow bracelets 
and they were ready for....

A bon fire by the creek!

And I finally got to sit down with my coffee!

And as the sun set, the tree tops turned
the most beautiful shade of golden yellow!

Happy Friday!

Loved this post. . . Loved your ideas for celebration, tie dye, s'mores, jump photo, being at home doing "together/inclusive" ideas . . . and sharing with us.

Yellow is my summer color this year and your header makes me delightfully happy! It is PERFECT!

Enjoy your coffee . . .

Oh My... what a fun way to celebrate the end of school and beginning of summer.
You did a fabulous job of creating an atmosphere that wasn't over the top but made it a special celebration.

The photo of the girls running is great!

looks like a wonderful celebration for your daughter and her friends! Love those tie dye tees! I've had the itch to tie dye lately. Beautiful photos that remind me of that giddy just out of school feeling : )
