I've been holding on to these pictures for a while now. I just really needed to edit them down a bit. There were so many good ones that I find it nearly impossible to choose.
Anyway, as the title implies, this year Aurora chose a unicorns and rainbows party. Actually she chose unicorns and I convinced her to add the rainbows by describing the candy buffet. She had been reading this series of books about a unicorn school and was really into them. And who can't get behind that idea? And for the boys, dragons were permitted to attend.
While the party followed a VERY hectic summer and Theo's party, it went off with very limited hiccups. Much less stressed out that at Theo's. That's not to say it wasn't a boatload of work. This stuff doesn't just happen, people. :)
The day was darned near perfect. Great weather. Great Friends. Great fun. The kids enjoyed a day full of sugar as well as a craft and even a treasure hunt for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
I asked everyone to come dressed all in one color so we could be our own rainbow...
