With summer in full swing and our kids spending more time with their friends, this is a fabulous time to talk slumber parties! I remember my first slumber party fondly. My mom let me invite eight giggling girls to our house.

It’s unlikely the girls will all wake up at once and a fun cereal bar where they can serve themselves will keep them happy and you from living in the kitchen all morning.
