The girls celebrated their birthdays this past weekend with their second annual joint pool party, this year we went with a unicorn theme and all the pastel rainbow colors to go with it! We purposefully kept things suuuuper laid-back. I had initially thought about having it at our new house but opted for our neighborhood pool instead, with house projects still going on and baby girl about seven weeks away it just seemed way more realistic — and I am so glad we did! The girls are obsessed with going to our pool as often as possible, they loved having all of their friends there with them and it was probably their favorite party yet, and definitely the easiest one I have planned.
Funny how that works.
I ordered some fun unicorn plates & napkins online, as well as a couple cake toppers and some sweet little treats for favor bags. My mom helped with the cake (which we ordered but loved what they came up with!), my sister-in-law made the cutest rainbow cookies ever, and the kids ate fruit and pizza between swimming for the entire two hours of the party. Also worth noting, this was the first year both girls sat for the entire happy birthday song while we sang to them, we practiced a couple of times that morning and I think having the song together made them not quite as nervous. Avalon said it was the best part of her day, I just love that they will have this memory together!

I took all of these pictures that morning before the party, another little hack I have learned over the years to make things so much easier! I always want to remember the details but also want to be able to be in the moment as well.
HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY to my sweet summertime babies, you truly are my sunshine and there is no one in the world I would rather celebrate than you. XO
