A Birthday Party day before Easter am I crazy??

I didn’t think about it when I scheduled Cole’s 7th Birthday party that it would be the day before Easter (ugh). So it was a little crazy for me planning the party and making sure it all went off with out a hitch. Ok who am I kidding … just a party with out a melt down. hehe

The party was a HUGE success, I believe we had 23 kids show (that includes siblings). At first I didn’t have enough adults in pool (had to have an adult for every 3 kids under 7. So we had one grumpy lifeguard at first. But then we had enough adults and the hour & half flew by.

Then my AMAZING friends helped me turn a empty room into party central in 15 minutes!! They are freaking awesome, I don’t know what I would do with out them. Pizza arrived and the kids eat 6 pizza’s in no time FLAT and all cupcakes gone Smile. Cole was a little shy while everyone sang to him then great gifts. That last pic is of the mess my house was left after the boys opened up every gift.

The boys had a great egg hunt at church. We then had a brunch with my parents. The boys were so excited to do a egg hunt at their house, but their furnace crapped out so they had to go get a new one. Of course when I got home it poured rain so I did one inside Smile.

For the yummy cakes I made a blue velvet cupcake mix.

<p>I used this in a cupcake that was cooked in a ice cream cone for my son&#8217;s birthday party.</p>

Then in the ice cone’s (with a little white cake mix to look like waves). Then we went up to my moms to frost them and make the pool themed cupcakes! They were so cute and a HUGE hit with the kids Smile.
