Parade!

Today was our neighborhood 4th of July party, starting with a parade around a couple of blocks near the elementary school. Victoria had been decorating her bike (and anything else that couldn't fight back) for the past few weeks in anticipation. And it all paid off big time as she got the blue ribbon for best decorated bike. I think the judges may have relied more on enthusiasm than aesthetics. She was pretty happy, of course. After the parade there were games and a picnic and a balloon guy and a water balloon fight. Perfect weather, lots of kids, a nice party. We came back to the house and I cleaned up a little but there was a fair amount of daylight left so we went to a new park (one that has tennis courts) to try out Victoria's new racquet. While there she met a girl who was willing to share her scooter and they played until late. Once I got Victoria in bed, I finished putting up the border in her room and now Victoria's room is practically finished.

She could still use a rug, a bookshelf, and a chair. Plus I have a new rod to add to her closet; she can't reach the one that's in there now.

Now the room just needs more "stuff", the paint cans don't really make good furniture. :-)

While I am so desperate for furniture that paint cans sound alright to me, you need to click the "before" picture to be amazed by the pink, pink, pink wonderland that is "after". But I warn you, it is quite pink.

Ah, THERE we go. When I read my FL, I hit apple-click which opens the link up in a separate tab. When I finish the friends page, then I go look at and comment on all the tabs that I opened. So it's not immediate (sometimes I might leave them till the next day, even) and I didn't realize that was the "before" and that I needed to click to get to the after. :-)

Wow, that is pink!! Maylie would die loving it, I'm sure Victoria is very pleased!

Add a couple of boards to those cans and you've got bookcases! Won't Brian be thrilled

Thanks for the hint about the after, that is definitely pink! I had figured my browser was lame. The room looks great!
