I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

This past weekend was a birthday party for my two little munchkins.   My kids birthdays are 3 days apart so we do one big joint party every year.   It's getting a bit harder to pick themes they will both like, but since they both love ice cream this year was lots of fun.   I thought I would share some photos from this ice cream filled event with everyone. 

We played some fun ice cream themed games.   The first one was a spray painted Styrofoam ball on a ice cream cone.   They had to walk around the yard trying to keep the ball on the cone.   Once they made it back they traded in their cone for some ice cream treats.

Then changed up the old fashioned game of pin the tail on the donkey and everyone got some ice cream lip gloss for playing.  

The kids then made their own ice cream sundaes.....yummy

 For the cake I made a large ice cream bar style cake.   Lemon flavoured cake (picked by my son) covered in fondant.  The stick is made from gum paste so it would hold up in the heat.  

To keep on track with the theme all the items in the loot bags were ice cream themed as well.   I made some ice cream bar chocolate treats that were also included in everyone's bag.  

That was our ice cream parlor birthday party.   The kids are already putting in their requests for next years party, so let the planning begin again :)

My, my it has been some time since I posted something.   I don't know where the month of July has gone.   I took some time off to do some more kitchen renovations and I have been working on some fun treats that I will post later.

Today I wanted to share a link to another blog called Birthday Girl.  She posts some great ideas and I am particularly in love with the S'more blog from yesterday so I thought I would share these fun treats.   Enjoy!!
