Last Monday, a week ago, we looked at the forecast for the weekend and it looked warm and sunny. Then Wednesday hit and it was still warm, but sunny for Saturday. I wanted to cancel it, but mean ole Michael wouldn’t let me. So we went ahead with it. We should have had it in the morning, although cloudy, sun was poking out. By the party time it was just a little drizzle…the girls were able to get in the pool. But we had the party inside.
Addison is the only summer birthday in our entire family. So we want to make sure that we take full advantage of my mom’s or sister’s pool! She had a good time and everyone else did too. She still doesn’t care much about opening presents, but really liked what was inside of them!
This years theme was a luau!
Many thanks to the Dollar Tree for supplying excellent party supplies. Gotta get them early because they go super quick! I spent $40 dollars for everything! Cheapest party I have ever planned!
I was going to make cake pops with the fishy beach scene. But ran across these extra ginormous marshmallows at target and decided to use those instead. They worked great and tasted good too! Ella Kate helped me with the fish pops…
and she put all the sprinkles on the rice krispy treats! These are a staple for all things preschool related, so easy and fast, and tastes super good!
I had left over white chocolate and I decided to make a tray of white chocolate flat pretzels. My family loves these flat pretzels that I get at costco!
Addison ate nothing but sugar for the rest of the afternoon. She favored the pretzels and every time I saw her she was putting them in her mouth! So by the time bed time rolled around she was just a mess!
Yesterday I realized what a terrible job I did at taking pictures throughout the party. I didn’t even get a picture of her eating cake…partly because we had a big meltdown while cake was being served. YAY 2! I also didn’t get a picture of the 4 of us either!
