Buckets of Fun

Did you make a summer bucket list?  Mine is done!  
We had some friends over today for a little fun in the sun and got to check one item off the list.

I'd been wanting to have a summer playdate for awhile.  Set up all the water toys, bubbles and serve lunch.  I made these two new recipes which were delish and a hit with the mommies.

Greek Hummus Dip

Dream Bars

Even this little party was more work than I thought, but totally worth it.  Lauren was so excited when she woke up to see the entire backyard set up and special snacks made.
I don't have a picture, but made a summer snack mix for the party too.  The kids ate it up, but I'm now stuck with a box of Trix.  Both Lauren and William picked "the beach balls" out.  

 Here's my list!
Nothing too crazy, just a few things.
Making real lemonade and going to the drive in are being carried over from years past, but I can now check off the lemonade:)

Lauren's Lemonade
*1 1/2 cups sugar
*1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemons (6-8 lemons)
*8 cups water

Mix sugar and 1 cup of water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, stir continuously, until sugar dissolves.  Cool completely and add syrup mixture to a pitcher of the lemon juice and then add remaining water.  Refrigerate and serve.

Super easy and a new summer staple.  Maybe someone's signature drink:)
