Beach partiers Daisy, Ernie, Maxine, and Irene enjoying the pool under the shade of our palm tree
Here in Mankato, Minnesota, we’ve had an extraordinarily harsh winter. We’ve experienced subzero temperatures, as well as large quantities of snow and intense winds. Needless to say, this winter has been a much too long winter.
In an attempt to get our minds off of this Minnesota winter, we decided to throw a beach party right here at Primrose! We encouraged our residents to dress in summer and beach-themed clothes for the party. Many residents participated, and it was fun for everyone to see each other wearing something other than our warm winter clothes.
The Beach Boys music playing in the background and all the decorations helped to put us in the mood to enjoy mojitos, as well as beach-themed snacks: chips and salsa! We had a few different kinds of salsas to sample and we had a vote at the end for the favorite kind. The homemade fruit salsa was a hit!
After our refreshments, we shared stories about trips to different beaches. It was interesting to hear about all of the different places around the world our residents have been. We shared lots of memories and funny stories. We all left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, and maybe even showing a little bit of a sun tan!
