We had a mid-week day off of school (Emily's birthday) which seemed the perfect time for a going away party for Emily and Marcy. (Olivia did not want to include her friends in this and had a massive sleepover the Fri before we left instead.) Emily and Marcy each had five girls over for the afternoon. I didn't want twelve girls running around the house so I planned outdoor activities and prayed for good weather. It was a beautiful day. They ate pizza, had a neighborhood photo scavenger hunt, played with water balloons and ran through sprinklers and made ice cream in a bag. It was a 2 hour party which I thought was plenty of time but no one was ready to leave - a successful party!
