EIGHT is GREAT... Part 2

The main event on Sheridan's actual Bday was that I invited two of her closest friends over for the day. She didn't know they were coming after church...and that made it even more fun! These are two sweet and fun girls and they exclaimed over their FRIENDSHIP SHIRTS. (so funny, they came up with that name!)

Activities included swimming, hamburgers for lunch on the patio, a quick gift opening from Ryan (before he headed off to Boy's State), chocolate dipping dessert (BIG HIT), trampoline time, and lots of laughter. It was a BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY and a wonderful way to celebrate Sheridan's birthday!

Sheridan had thought about having a chocolate themed party for a few months. I don't have a fondue pot (nor do they sell those in my small town), I didn't want to splurge on a chocolate fountain, and so we simply melted almond bark in small bowls and let them dip to their hearts' content! Strawberries, pretzel rods, graham crackers, wafer cookies and grapes were dipped, as well as a few fingers for good measure. It was fun!
