Summer Weekend Fun - Neverland Party

Well I don't know about you, but I have had just about enough of this week already...  Not one night all week has been "normal".  But tomorrow I am kissing it all goodbye for the day!  We are so excited to take the kids on their first ever kayaking trip on the beautiful and pristine Muskegon River.  We had planned this trip a few weeks ago but then it was way too hot to have the kids out in the sun where we couldn't escape if they got overheated and then it was supposed to thunderstorm.  So they have been geared up for 3 weeks to go - I'm sure everyone will be bouncing out of bed early in the morning.  

If you are looking for something fun to do on a summer weekend, you might take a look at this awesome "Neverland" party we had for my daughter's birthday a couple years ago.  

It started as a fairy party but we had to do something to appease the boys and in the end it was much less dainty and much more "Neverland" and a whole lot of fun!  Its actually a very fast set-up and mostly entails gathering things you or your neighbors may have tucked away in the garage.  And the best part is that you can leave it set up for a few days if you like.

The big boxes we used for the Jolly Roger can be gotten for free from your local appliance dealer or mattress store.  The kids can play in Mermaid lagoon, you could run the hose over the Crocodile Creek to make it like a slip'n'slide, and a water balloon fight to destroy the Jolly Roger will have even the dads involved.

Be sure to check out my guest post tomorrow over at Michelle's Tasty Creations.  It's a post full of easy recipes to stretch your budget to the max.  I think you will be surprised at how far this one goes!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
