Best Birthday Party Ever-Series: Foam Party [Review + Special Offer]


And another “Best birthday party ever!” in the books. I’m very good at throwing the best birthday parties ever, if I may say so myself. This time, we had 6 girls over for a party and sleepover. Those 6 plus our 2 daughters, makes 8 girls ages 6-9. (Yes, there is a girl with a black bucket on her head. She likes to do things like that.)

After researching the awesome Live Grow Play Austin Kids Directory (which I created and manage myself – patting myself on the back), I decided to go with a foam party provided by Freedom Fun.
