Believe in the sun, even when it's not shining

In love, even when you're alone

In God, even when He is silent.

It didn't take Miss Rayni long to find Lady while she and her Mommy were dropping off her sister for the sleepover :)

Queen Addy

Sky, Amery, Grace, Emma & Addy...a beautiful fivesome for the first sleepover that Gracie & I hosted! Pizza, floats and toys poolside...a good start!

Uh oh... Bandit escaped with a fishy floaty! :/

When it's flipped upside down, it becomes a car! Who knew?!

Amery was taking her shower to prepare for the movies, cookies and popcorn by this time, but the rest were still hamming it up in the pool!

Even though we lost one little one to homesickness at about midnight, the rest of the crew was up at 6:30 AM...just in time to help Daddy feed the horses :)

After blueberry muffins and fresh fruit for breakfast, they had a brief swim, showers, and then began making their bottlecap necklaces. Amery was a great teacher!

Then, it was painting...with lotsa paper towels and Windex close by!

...after mini corndogs for lunch, ICE CREAM!!! Ice cream decorated with sprinkles and Hershey's Chocolate Sauce - what could be better?

Just before Mommy came to pick them up, I think the six hours of sleep they had had began catching up with them! They all settled in to bed to watch Tangled...a sweet ending indeed.

A day later, this Mommy is still in need of a good nap... but it was tons of fun :)
