IMG_0751Today was our second annual end-of-summer/ beginning of school party @ the park. On the day before school, we got together with school friends at the park in our neighborhood. The kids had a great time decorating their cupcakes and enjoying some of their last few hours of summer.

Last week we were pushing 100 degrees, so I was wondering if it would be too hot for the party this week. Thanks to the lovely changeability of Nebraska weather, heat was not a problem. It was definitely jacket weather for our end of summer party, but the kids didn’t seem to mind.

I think cupcakes at the park is the best, easiest party idea EVER. Especially since my friends are all AWESOME and insisted on bringing things. I made 3 batches of cupcakes and we brought sprinkles, hand wipes and soccer stuff. Other than that, nothing! Others brought frosting, paper products, lemonade, and tons of other sporting equipment. The only thing I’d do differently next year is have some sort of treat for the adults (not that any of the moms minded having a cupcake…it would just be nice to offer something more grown up.)
