I'm a week behind (of course!) but last weekend we were able to celebrate Claire's 4th birthday with an outer space party!
This was the first year that we did an all friends party, rather than just a family party with a few friends. With Claire being in preschool this year, and actually having more friends her age it seemed like the perfect year to transition that way. I think she actually liked it more because her birthday lasted almost a full week as she was opening presents randomly throughout the week when family members saw her ;)
Of course it was forecasted to be the hottest day of the summer so far (101 degrees) for the day of her party. Thankfully it stayed slightly overcast, so although it was muggy, it wasn't too terrible to be outside! We filled up the pool and let all the kids splash around.
She had such a great time, and was especially excited to see her friends from school since it had been about a month since they had all been together! She woke up the morning after the party and asked if all of her friends could come over for another birthday party again that day!
Earth cookies and star shaped PB&J!
Strawberry, marshmallow, and cantaloupe 'rocket ships'
I filled the space themed goody bags with pop rocks, glow sticks, and outer space erasers!
