I scream, you scream…

… we all scream for icecream!

There was lots of that going on in our front yard on Saturday. Actually it was more squealing than screaming. Screaming is scary. Squealing is over excited… and we’re still sleeping it off.

This little girl turned one last week. Here she is in all her first birthday sweetness – altogether now, say “Awwww!”:

Hot, hot, summer weather, a desire to show off my new front yard, and the horror of kids dripping icecream all over my freshly mopped floors brought the whole party outdoors for a picnic style celebration. Awesome!

Except for the wind that played havoc with my table arrangements and slaved-over lovingly-created garlands. Speaking of which, take a look at my party inspiration on Pinterest.

We started with kiwi “chips and dip” and sandwiches, then quickly moved on to the main event of icecream. Complete with waffle cones, sauces, sprinkles and gummy bears!

Mum brought some oliebollen from the Pukekohe Farmer’s Market (literally “oil balls” in Dutch, but oh so much better than that sounds!) which went down pretty quickly.

I had a great time picking out some photo highlights of our little girls first year to string up between the trees. It is lovely to have some memories of such a busy year now lying all about the house to make me stop and smile!

Sticky fingers (and more) were washed off in the paddling pool…

And finally it was time for cake and then home. Happy Birthday my beautiful girl!
