The kids (and adults too) had such a fun time. The party theme was Princess Bug Party as that is what Elizabeth wanted. It was perfect as there were a few little boys at the party who would have felt a bit left out if it was just a Princess party (although Andrew would not have cared - he gets to dance to princess music every night and his sister puts barrettes in his hair).
The kids had a fun time playing all kinds of bug games. We played pin the ladybug on the leaf and then went on a bug hunt. Dad hid a bunch of plastic bugs in the park behind our house and the kids had a blast trying to find them. We then had a butterfly pinata. As you can see, there are strings on the pinata so that you pull the strings instead of hitting it with a baseball bat. Some say weak, I say, 4 years old! The kids had a fun time!
We usually like to make birthday cakes of various shapes and sizes but this year I was feeling a little bit overwhelmed and decided to buy a store - cake. And was it worth it. I would have to say that it was the prettiest and yummiest bug cake I've ever seen and tasted in my whole life.
As usual, looking for "friends" in the dirt.
