Somewhere Over the Rainbow

PK2 wanted a Rainbow Birthday party to celebrate turning 6 this year.  We had two balloon rainbows, a rainbow cake and a bounce house!
 The kids played on the slip and slide:

Made a fairy garden...or for the boys it was a dinosaur garden:

Cousin made her this rainbow card:

And PK1's best friend made her this Richard Scary mobile for her room!  Precious! PK2 LOVES Richard Scary.

I think everyone had a good time:
Especially the birthday girl:
She got so many wonderful gifts:
Including these grass skirts from Gram:
And a stomp rocket from Gigi.  As soon as she opened the stomp rocket, it was like holding back wild horses.  The boys wanted to play with it SO BAD.  PD set it up right after the gifts were opened and everyone had a lot of fun with it.  PD is actually outside right now trying to get a couple rockets out of the tree!
And of course, the cake, around which the whole birthday was based.

Then, after everyone went home, the yard was picked up, and the girls had a shower, believe it or not, there was a real rainbow in the sky.  Our phone started ringing, everyone was calling to tell us.  PK2 had said a few days ago, "Maybe there will be a real rainbow on my birthday." I assured her that there would not be. What a beautiful surprise!

Nice work! Your cake turned out beautiful and I love the balloon swags! Where was that weather for my knight birthday!? No problem, it was totally fine to cram 50 bodies into my teeny tiny living room! :)
