After school last Thursday, Helen Grace celebrated her birthday along with two other May birthday friends from school, Bella Marie and Olivia, at Millstone Market with a garden fairy party.
The girls dressed up like fairies, made fairy dust, listened to a story about fairies, went on a scavenger hunt around the nursery for fairy keepsakes, built a fairy garden, and enjoyed a sweet cupcake and pink lemonade.
Helen Grace really got into all of it. She picked out her costume, loved getting all decked out in her fairy ‘gear,’ enjoyed telling everyone how to make the fairy dust (modeled from the dust Peter Pan gave her last year), soaked up every minute of the scavenger hunt, and freaked out when she found the fairy dust that the fairy left during her visit to her garden.
Enjoy the pictures of our favorite little fairies!
Grace and Olivia They had a very loud and excited bird in the nursery. HG and BM were so intrigued….until it squawked for the next hour. This is what happens when you tell 5/6 year olds to hug and say ‘cheese.’ The birthday fairies: Olivia, HG, and Bella Marie Thankfully, Spiffer jumped right back into teacher mode to help with the fairy dust project. Evie and Emerson Olivia, Emma, Claire Getting ready to go on the scavenger hunt Found a birdhouse!

Afterward, we went to Bronte for dinner, and while we ate, there was a wild rainstorm. Immediately afterward, we were blessed with this AMAZING double rainbow.
