Despite cloudy skies and sprinkling rain, we held our last day of school party in the back yard with our neighborhood friends yesterday.
I decided that if I was going to make the cake again this year, it needed to be part of an over all color scheme, so we went rainbow everywhere.
Since last year’s cake was so heavy and nearly fell over when I cut it, I made the layers thinner this year. I also used a new buttercream frosting that was ah-mazing.
This year we decided to have a little photo booth with a few props for the kids to wear and have their pictures taken. They were cute.
We also had a scavenger hunt with challenges the kids had to do at different houses in the ‘hood’ and an obstacle course they had to complete before we could cut the cake.
To end the fun we made our summer wishes and let go of balloons ala Nie into the atmosphere. Owlie was troubled by it and kept saying “Byoons come back!”, but it was a lovely sight to watch the colors fly away and become tiny specks in the sky.
I’d say it was a pretty great start to the summer!
