I think Shelby had a great time and most of my ideas for a beach party were taken from Pinterest. My croissant crab did not make it, the red bell pepper was left behind :(. However the watermelon shark tray did.
I ordered the invitation from Etsy and then had them printed at Office Depot. You can click here for the website.
We all had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful weather and friends that came together. Our good friends and neighbors Jimmy and Paige rented the house next to us and helped with dinner. Loved having them around.
While the girls played card games or had their teenage time, Paige and I hung out with the babies on the beach. I made Watermelon-Hibiscus Cocktail (click on title for recipe) which was perfect for a hot summer day. The original recipe calls for Honeysuckle however that can only be found in Georgia or Mississippi.

Dinner out on Saturday night at Mario's in Galveston.
Happy 18th baby girl!!!
I drove everyone back on Monday and was exhausted by the end of the weekend. Labor day was laborious for me but oh, so worth it.
I don't have a picture of her birthday cake but I ordered it from Patty Cakes's in Galveston and it was the most delicious birthday cake I have had. You can click here for that website. It wasn't anything spectacular but an old fashion birthday cake with butter creme frosting with fresh strawberry filling.
I was also very happy to have my busy working son join us on Sunday with his boyfriend. The girls loved playing card games with them.
More to come on my active life this weekend!
