This weekend we celebrated Lola's 4th birthday with an ice cream party.
Saturday morning we gathered with a group of Lola's little friends on our building's roof top for some ice cream themed fun. We had ice cream shaped popcorn treats, a popsicle pinata, an ice cream shaped birthday cake, ice cream cone party hats, and we made our own ice cream! So much fun.
As always, the pinata was a huge hit with the kids. Pun intended! The kids all had a few turns at hitting it before Ava knocked it to the ground. It didn't break open at that point though so the kids continued hitting it on the ground until it was sufficiently ripped open. Then it was held up high by one of the parents and the goodies inside were tipped over the kids. I love the look of anticipation (and a little fear!) on their faces!
At the end of the party Lola gave her guests special ice cream themed party favors: cones topped with meringue and filled with jellybeans. More sugar!
Lola and her friends had so much fun at her ice cream party.
Big thanks to everyone who helped make Lola's day special.
P.S. I'll have some ice cream themed DIYs from the party coming soon. Stay tuned!
