Deciding on the theme of any party is the hardest part. Although the girls did not sleep outside, they all enjoyed themselves at Camp Samantha. We had so much going on throughout the day. We started with presents and cake and ice cream. I set up the fireplace with a banner and a Don't feed the bears station. This is where my daughter opened presents. We also had a photo booth, where the girls could dress up and get there photo taken. And a mini Smore's bar that was a huge hit! After that the girls swam for a little while then we made t-shirts and pet rocks, while dinner was cooking on the grill. After we ate the girls swam until dark. We broke out the glow sticks and ran and hid and giggled oh and of course screamed...Lots of screaming! We had smore's by the fire and the girls finally settled down ate popcorn and watched movies.
Ice Cream Cake ~ Not a good choice for a June Birthday, but yummy just the same.
