We have a huge family but not many girls that would do the hula or things like that so instead of party games (which non of my nephews and nieces play anyway, all they want to do is play with each other) I made a pinata, and at the last minute Ashley said she wanted it to be a Flamingo instead of a beach ball. So it looked a little crazy, but it worked.
I made lemon aid and we set all the kids' cups up with their names and umbrellas. Then I made teriyaki pork in the crock-pot. We put it on buns with pineapple rings and it was so good. I used this cute Teriyaki brand called Soy Vey and then put in two cans of pineapple juice in the crock pot, letting it cook all night and shredded it.
My kids and I made this mural and wow it was not what I pictured in my mind of what I wanted it to look like...but we had a lot of fun making it.

|Ashley said there needed to be a guy that fell into the waterfall. So I made feet sticking out and she laughed for so long about it, I think that was her favorite part.|
