We had Jackson's 6th birthday party over the weekend. In the past I have spent weeks preparing and planning for a big blowout party. If your like me, you put so much time and energy into the party and every little detail that you forget to have fun, relax, and enjoy your child's party. I was determined to enjoy and relax at this party. We decided that a party at the arcade would be the way to go...no worrying about coming up with things to entertain everybody, no house cleaning, no worrying about the weather...just simple...fun...easy. This party was so easy. For a lot less than I would have spent on food and/or games we were able to reserve the arcade and got way more than enough tokens for all the children (both young and old) at the party.

So did I mention that this party was sooo easy??? Yea, I just showed up with cake, ice cream, and drinks (the items seen on this table are all I brought)...easy
The kids had a bit too much fun with the party horns (sorry parents)
This picture cracks me up! Madi plugging her ears while she blows her party horn! HA!
aaahhhh...now everyone is quiet...nothing like some cake and ice cream to bring on the quietness.
A girl after my own heart...she loves some ice cream and is making sure she does not miss one bite =)
Love that messy chocolate face!
Jack got a great tackle box
and a (plastic) bow and arrow
and a fishing rod to go with that tackle box =)
I managed to gather up a few of the children for a semi-group shot before they took off to play in the arcade...did I mention how easy this party was???

Jackson won quite a few tickets on the basketball game!
Jackson said he had so much fun at his party! We are all about having the next party here!
