and ice-cream themed food - ice cream cupcakes (chocolate cake baked in ice cream cones with piped frosting), and ice cream cake pops (in mini ice cream cones). After a pizza dinner, there was the DIY ice-cream bar.
After having fun with the chocolate fountain, we had a craft activity. The girls made pretty ice-cream bracelets.
Then it was time for birthday cake! Lily chose to have cupcakes stacked to look like ice cream cones. Inspired by this.
The party bag were filled with everything ice-cream : Ice-cream lip-gloss, ice-cream bubbles, ice-cream pens, erasers, bookmarks, rings, craft kits, stickers and activity sheets. I purchased bags and attached these cute tags from here.

I've decided to jump on the bandwagon and join in Chantelle'sPhoto a Day challenge. She's devised a list of ideas of things to photograph each day, then upload them to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and/or Tumblr. Each day, check out everyone elses photos too! It's fun to see what people in other parts of Australia and the world are up to!
Today's picture is "my view". Well, my view today was my baby starting school. Amazingly, there were no tears (from either of us!)
