Welcome to Equestria!

Caroline turned SEVEN! Woo hoo! For the first time in several years, she chose NOT to have her party at Chuck E. Cheese. (I was both happy and sad about that.) Instead, she decided to have a My Little Pony party here at home. It was A LOT of work, but it was SO much fun. We loved it.

When Caroline chose an MLP theme, I figured it would be easy peasy to just hop on Pinterest and gather tons of great ideas. But I couldn't find anyone else who had done a party like I had in mind. So we had to come up with our own ideas. We chose one activity for each of the six main ponies.

First, the girls visited Fluttershy's cottage. Caroline wanted time to just play with her "stuffies". Since Fluttershy loves animals, we made that our first stop and the girls played upstairs while waiting for everyone to arrive.

When everyone was here, we had Twilight's Elements of Harmony treasure hunt. This was my favorite part. (even though the "gold"  sticks for the beads had some issues.)

I found beads that represented each of the Elements of Harmony.

Like Rarity's purple diamond of generosity.

Andrew wrote the clues for the treasure hunt
and the girls were OFF!

They would put each bead on their gold pipe cleaners.
By the end, they each had an Elements of Harmony bracelet.

Next, we went to Sweet Apple Acres to help
Apple Jack with her apple bucking.
This picture doesn't have the best lighting,
but those are trees with balloon "apples" on them.

Ready to harvest


Whitney and Andrew were Flim and Flam,
bad guys who want to ruin the harvest.
The girls had to get their harvest past them to win.
The first round was awesome and everyone had fun.
We played two more rounds and some of the girls
liked it, some didn't.

After that, we visited Pinkie Pie's Carnival.
Care Bear picked an MLP puzzle and Memory game to play.

And the carnival finale was the pinata. 

Woo hoo! 

Next, we visited Rainbow Dash's Cool Cloud Course.

Whitney, our resident artist, drew a maze of clouds

that the girls had to jump through

to make it to Cloudsdale.

The girls LOVED this game. 

We played over and over again. 

Until one little girl tripped and scraped her knees. :( 

Our final stop in Ponyville was at Rarity's Boutique.
Since Rarity is all about FASHION, 
the girls could paint pictures to accessorize
their rooms or make jewelry to accent
their wardrobes. 

Most of the girls chose to paint pictures.

They did a great job and made
some masterpieces. 

Then it was time for cake.

Happy birthday, dear Caroline!

So happy that these friends could celebrate
Caroline's big day with her.
