Zoe and I were thrilled when we decided on a fiesta theme this year for her 7th birthday. Originally, we were going to have it at the house with some tacos and chips & queso, but the more she shared with me what she wanted to do at her party...well, about 2 weeks before the date I decided we would all melt in August Texas heat. Therefore, I found a place called My Gym that gave her a location that she could run free and play with her friends. I loaded up all her goodies she picked out and created a fiesta!
Zoe is in love with candy and cascerones (confetti eggs). When we were having the party at home, we had planned on having a confetti party outside. Since we couldn't do that at the gym, we sent the cascerones home so the fiesta could keep going with their families!
I even purchased mini-Mexican bags the kids could use to fill up their loot from the piñata!
Now to the good stuff...the actual party! The gym had the kids play a couple of games like duck, duck goose and capture the flag along free time for them to run and play. I'm fairly certain that for the first 30 minutes Max thought the party was for him, ha!! :)
We then took a break to sing Happy Birthday and cut the piñata cake...
full of M&Ms!!!
We are so thankful for good friends from school and our neighborhood who came to party with Zoe. She loves "her people" and being able to spend an afternoon playing with them is a favorite for our girl.
After cake, the gym set up an obstacle course for the kids to run through which was super fun!
We finished the fiesta with everyone pulling a string to release the goods from the piñata!
Daniel and I are so thankful for our brown eyed girl. She exudes joy and radiates love. We couldn't be more proud of who she is and the way God is molding her.
Happy 7th Birthday Zoe Grace!!
