This was Gracie's third party at Perfect North. It is always such a fun party spot for the entire family that we keep going back for more. It's also a pretty easy party to throw. My only job is to make sure the tables, cake, and invites look great, and the fun happens on it's own.
With Gracie settling into her new school, we got a chance to meet some of her new CCA friends. The girls had a ball, and it was nice meeting their parents as well.
We have had both penguin and snowman themed parties at Perfect North in the past, but this year we went with a more sophisticated theme. Snowflakes were the central inspiration. And of course, everything had to compliment her signature aqua/teal/greenish-blue color. Because you know pink is a sin, and blue is sooooo last year!
I know I have already said this, but my favorite thing about having Gracie's party at Perfect North is that it is fun for everyone involved. We actually hardly see the kids at all during the two-hour lift time. The grown-ups can act like big kids, and the kids can act like, well... us. This year, the party was even more spectacular thanks to the weather. It was a whopping 55 degrees when we arrived at the slopes! We usually get to the bottom of the hill and can't feel our noses. This year, we didn't even have to wear snow pants to keep warm. The kids were even complaining about being hot! What a perfect evening.
The kids, and adults, ran crazy for two hours, while working up quite an appetite. Finally, the cold troops trudged inside for cake, ice cream, and presents. As always the party was a gigantic success, and we are already looking forward to next year.
