Emree's 6th Birthday

Emree's birthday party was supposed to be a very stress free party with a bounce house and sno-cone machine to keep the kids entertained so that we could relax and just watch the kids play and have fun. The party was from 12 - 2:30pm and the only thing I had planned for activities was decortating your own little heart cake and opening presents. I figured that the kids would just want to jump and eat sno-cones. Well, note to self, prepare games that you can play to keep 25 kids entertained in case your "party" doesn't show up! What a total nightmare!! The bounce house and sno-cone machine was supposed to show up at 11:30am, plenty of time before the party right? Well to make a very LONG story short, after 7 phone calls and racing around to figure out what to do with the kids, my party showed up at 2pm. It took them 15 min to set up so the kids had 15 min to play in the bounce house and eat sno-cones before their parents arrived. I, of course, got everything for free and will never use that same company again. We can laugh about it now, but it really was a complete wreck and I was just a tad bit furious when they showed up. Definitely a party to remember and a lesson learned - always be prepared!!

Emree and one of her best friends Lindsey eating their sno-cones! Emree had a great time with all of her little friends and all was well when her party got there!

Kennedy and Dalin were a huge help in getting the sno-cones ready for the kids. It was a really fun little machine to have. I would love to have one of my own.

What a rip on the castle and snow cones. Atleast you didn't have to pay for the fifteen minutes!! Too bad Eric and I don't live closer for three summers when Eric was a teenager he worked at a snow cone shop!! We are glad Emree had a great party. You are so brave to have 25 kids attend!!

You guys throw a smashing party! Looks like it was a ton of fun (even though it was way late, what a pain!).
