Eighth Birthday Party


Big Sis wanted a Hello Kitty party at one of our favorite parks.  This park is fabulous, by the way.  My parents used to take me there when I was very small.  All the kids (and quite a few of the adults) rode the miniature train, and some of us took a turn on the pedal boats.  There are Shetland ponies and miniature golf, too, although we skipped those.

My friend Wendi made the beautiful and delicious cake and cupcakes.  


The kids took turns whacking the pinata. 


Poor pinata.


We came home with so much Hello Kitty stuff.   


So much.


Everyone thought Big Sis needed this t-shirt.  Lucky for Little Sis,
Big Sis doesn't mind sharing.

  1. A Hello Kitty cake and Pinata? Didn't even know they made those! I love the idea of going to the park for a birthday party! More spacious for sure and so many activities for everybody to enjoy. And there can't be too many Hello Kitty's presents, you know ;-)

    1. My friend who made the cake had already bought the Wilton cake pan for her own little one's party. For the rest, Party City has some great online options. I was just able to buy a big box of stuff for a decent price! The shelter we rented was right by the playground, too, so yeah, the kids stayed entertained!

    1. I would LOVE to do that someday. And I have one kiddo who loves all things Hello Kitty and another who is very, very interested in Japan. It would be a great trip. ;o)

      It was a very fun evening! Still hot, but windy, and the humidity was pretty low, so as long as we were in the shade, it wasn't too bad. Lots of family and friends and Hello Kitty. ;o)

    1. It was a delicious cake. I forgot to have a piece at the party, so I had some when we got home. So yummy. Wish we had some left! ;) It was a good day, thank you!
