Indoor Beach Party!!

These are the cupcakes we made. They were not too hard, but they were time consuming. The shark is made out of a twinkie. I must say, they were delicious! I would have liked the fish to be actually swimming, but you come convince my hard headed kid ANYthing and I will be impressed.

This is our sand - filled living room. Now you see why I say I will be still finding sand next year?

That thing over in the corner covered in plastic is Jake's piano. He threatened endlessly that his piano better not get wet - It survived without being scathed one bit!

This is the guest room. It was wall to wall Pool! There is one sheet rocked wall in there that we covered in plastic.

Lizzie had a blast! She begged for an indoor beach party since her 6th birthday - we said "NO" for 10 months and finally relented. I do not regret it - it was fun! It would only work in a house of solid tile or stained concrete like we have. You really can't hurt our house - it is a perfect house for parties.

Michele, I'm with deserve the nicest mom award. I was definately too up tight for such a sandy party! Sleepovers with 10 jabbering girls almost pushed me over the edge! I bet Lizzie is the most popular kid in school!
