J's 5th Bithday Party

Friday was J's 5th Birthday party. I have previously mentioned that this is a few weeks early due to daddy's working shift pattern, resulting in no weekends off around her birthday, and September being busy as she adjusts to starting 'big school' along with re-introducing dancing, and starting swimming lessons, so having her party now meant we could enjoy the summer weather, and enjoy her cousins company along side her friends, all at the same time.
She wanted a frozen theme, and in theme, we didn't really do much in the theme as I had originally hoped for, as it was all planned in 1 week. We hired a bouncy castle from bubbly bouncers. And this kept the children occupied for the majority of the time. We also had some games as a wet weather option, but we were lucky enough we didn't have rain, but used the games as a calm down time before food. This worked great. Here is the party in pictures....
 
The girlies home made costumes
J welcoming her friends onto the castle
Posing beautifully
J dancing to the music whilst her friends bounce around

Drinks fountain came in handy for the children to help themselves to juice
J had tears, as she fell over and grazed her thigh, and ankle
Pin the nose on Olaf, one of the only themed things of the party
Was a big success, with thanks to Daddy's artwork! :-)
Pass the parcel then followed...
It then went very quiet, whilst all the children tucked into party food
Cake time....
Before they all went back out onto the bouncy castle
Whilst a few slipped further back in the garden for a kick around...
Whilst a game of tag in the bubbles went ahead...
It was then time for everyone to go home, BUT... we had promised J musical statues... so her cousins were happy to oblige.
