So the first party of the day was our Wet and Wild Popsicle party. It was a blast and amazingly inexpensive (two things I always enjoy in a party).
This is the face Emma made when I told her she was turning green. She didn't think it was funny. But they did all have a lot of fun playing in the bubbles.
and did I mention that 14 kids ate 40 popsicles so obviously everyone had a good time.
Once the popsicle party was over I had a few hours to get ready for Emma's Night Owl Ice Cream Party.
I was really excited to have this party. When the class lists came out for school I thought it would be really fun to have a party for all the girls in the class to get to know each other before school started. Tracking everyone down was a little hard, but I managed to get a invite to every girl in the class.
I had the girls come in their pjs and bring a sundae topping to share.
When the girls got there the bounce house was still out, so I let them play on it from a while, while everyone arrived. I had moved the sofas in the family room close together and laid down a big blanket and had two very large bowls of popcorn waiting for the girls when they came in to start the movie.
About half way through the movie we took a little intermission and I had each girl introduce herself really quickly before we enjoyed some ice cream.
My favorite is the whip cream wrapped in a funny owl paper. Super Easy, but really cute.
I totally let the girls go crazy with the ice cream.
They were SHOCKED that I let them make their own sundaes with as much stuff on it as they wanted and eat as much as they wanted. If you are letting little girls do this, you may want to buy more that 3 cans of whip cream.
They really like whip cream.
When the movie was over we went back outside and lit a paper lantern I had left over from Emma's birthday party.
This picture is actually from Emma's birthday. I didn't take any pictures of the one from this party because I was alone with 12 seven year old girl flying something I lit on fire I didn't think it was a good idea to run an get the camera.
Since the parties I have have several of the kid's moms tell me what a good time they had. I am really glad, and it goes to show (or at least it shows me) that I don't have to go crazy from the kids to have a good time.
