My favorite birthday party ever?

For Whit's birthday party this year, I was not up for planning a big shindig.  I was just in charge of planning our beach getaway.  And her baptism. I just didn't feel up for it.  But we wanted to do something fun.  So, I gave her a few options that were not labor-intensive.  She opted for a mani-pedi party.  Yippee!

She invited two of her best friends to join us.

It was SO cute to watch 8-year-olds get pedicures.

This was Whit's first visit to a nail salon.
She handled it like a pro.
Her friends, however, both have VERY ticklish feet.
They had the whole salon laughing along with them.

The girls also had fun peeking at each other 
through the slats in the drying table.

The finished product!
Each of the girls chose two colors for their feet.

And two different colors for their hands.
We used just about every bright color they owned.
So. much. fun.

Afterward, we came home to decorate cupcakes,
sing to the birthday girl,
and eat.

Now that is my kind of party.
Easy.
Stress-free.
(Actually, stress-relieving, because I got a pedicure, too!)
And lots of fun.
I would love for this to become a new birthday tradition.  :)

  4. So fun! Yes, I like this stress-free idea, too! Do you think it would work for the next b-day I need to plan?... SJ's 3rd b-day in August... I can only imagine the chaos she would bring to that place...perhaps I need to wait a few years. :)
