13th Birthday Party!

Look out --
There's a teenager about!  :)

Actually, Maddy turned 13 in late December, but
due to holiday hecticness and with Mr. Tennis being ill and in the hospital, we
scheduled her party for last weekend!
Everyone needs some fun in January, right!!
It was a beautiful day -- just perfect for celebrating our new teenager!

Her party was at a local cheer/tumbling facility where
she takes lessons.  She invited 8 of her besties and
7 were able to attend.
They had loads of fun jumping off the bouncy trampoline walkway
into a ball pit!
Those girls are super flexible!
Ooops - Brooklyn lost her glasses after her jump in above!
It took a group effort to find them way down at the bottom of the pit!
Shhh - don't tell her Mom -- she probably wasn't informed about that little mishap.

No worries - Skyler made it all the way into the pit -
looks like she might not clear the edge in the photo above!

Then the staff set up a Nerf war!
They used the workout mats as barricades to hide behind.
Two teams - the green and blue bandana teams.
Go figure -- Maddy's team won both battles! :)

After all that running and jumping and flipping around, it was time for
bottles of water and treats!
Who doesn't love a cookie-cake with loads of frosting?!!

It was really a lot of fun with some good exercise mixed in too!
Maddy declared it was her best birthday party ever!

Oh my gosh, the Olaf cake! Emma would love that! A nerf war sounds pretty amazing too. I think our girls would be friends.

You planned a wonderful party for your daughter. I am planning a party for my daughter at a local event venue Chicago and was looking for awesome planning ideas. Planning a party for the first time so not having much ideas.
