So I wanted to show you a few more things I made to keep myself busy before and during Babycake’s 6th birthday!
The obvious theme here is ICECREAM, YAY! including the “scratch and sniff” icecream cone t-shirt.
The goodie bags had popsicle molds filled with candies, sherbet flavored lip balm, icecream cone shaped marshmallows and a little stuffed webkin. I saw on pinterest (of course!) bags embellished with cupcake liners and clothespins. (the clothespins are queenvanna creations, *ahem*) It was a great idea, and heavens knows I’ve got a few cupcake liners to spare.
We had pizza and juice boxes, and I found these adorable “for personal use” water bottle wrappers, so I made a few of those, too!
When the girls saw these, they suddenly didn’t want juice boxes, they all wanted water. =D
The shop had coloring and BINGO, and we did face painting:
(Big Girl said “no thank you” to face painting. “Yes thank you” to icecream.)
and paper dolls:
There was some mention that I should do some party planning, and I love that idea… but I don’t know how to go about that. People tell me they’re having a party and I tell them what to do? SIGN ME UP!
I will tell some people some things…. like which flavor icecream I want.
I think I can say a fun time was had by all.
Being that Babycake’s birthday is MY birthday, too, I on the actual day *i* wanna do something fun, we went to Lake Compounce, a local-ish theme and water park.
it was a beeeeeautiful day:
I rode a couple of grown up rides and decided I’m probably too old for grown up rides, and had a lovely day spending time with my little family.
And now because I love telling people what to do, I think *you* should spend your next birthday doing something you love, too! There, it’s planned.
