Abby's Glamping 9th birthday

This month my sweet oldest daughter turned 9.  Only one more year until double digits and halfway through to her probably going off to college. Crazy to think about it that way!  Last week we had her birthday party - summer parties can be lots of fun with all the water activities but we did a pool party last year. This year the theme was glamping. Pinterest was full of cute ideas - I had to greatly restrain myself from trying to do them all and picked my favorite things and tried to keep the rest low key and not work myself up into a Pinterest frenzy. 

Gigi had found these awesome A-frame tent set ups which were perfect for the party! I rearranged the living room and pushed the couches off the side to set up a camp site in the living room. 

 Abby's been asking for a dream catcher for a while and it seemed like the perfect crafty thing for the girls to do during the sleepover.
 It was so interesting to see their different personalities shine through with how they put together their dream catchers. Mostly their patience in how long they wanted to work on it and how much they wanted to add to it before moving onto something else.

 They were really excited to change into their coordinating pajamas. This was my "must-do" in regards to the glamping party because really how cute did these turn out? The girls really seemed to love them as well and didn't waste any time changing into them. My mom again was awesome and embroidered their names on the shorts and I took care of the vinyl on the tank tops.
The girls that came were all from Abby's gymnastics team and of course that meant they were quickly deciding to find poses that practiced their skills. After this they ended up practicing and making up routines on Abby's balance beam, taking turns judging each other - pretty much parroting what they coaches must critic them on! Highly entertaining to listen to as I watched them. 
After a dinner of hot dogs (I mean what else for a glamp out?) the girls settled in to watch a movie. We picked a classic of The Parent Trap (they are at camp and then they go camping in it) and the girls really seemed to enjoy it.
Of course after the movie I played bedtime police and was able to have all the girls to sleep by 11 which I'd say is pretty good for a sleepover.
