But, amid the rain and hail, we got the garden planted today.
We planted green beans, summer squash, spaghetti squash, zucchini, cucumbers, pumpkins, watermelon, tomatoes, and corn. I also have some peppers (bell mix and banana) that are still in the process of sprouting in my makeshift greenhouse, aka a clear tote on my back deck.
Hubby was digging posts for my kid deterrent chicken wire fence when he hit a sprinkler pipe. So I got to finish making the rows and planting by myself while he made two trips to Lowes and fixed the pipe...twice.
Now, hopefully everything will grow.

We are doing a big party for her next year (carnival themed) so this year is low key. With her approval, we decided on painting birdhouses.
We thought about games. My kids love Bingo if we use candy as the markers. Thanks to Martha, I found a Bingo game I could just print out. I did have to make my own calling cards but easy peasy!
Then, I needed to fill up the goody bags. I found this awesome tutorial for fabric pinwheels. I made the girl ones into clips and glued safety pins on the boys ones.
