Inexpensive and full of fun.
Are you ready for the challenge?
This cutie pie will be turning 10 all too soon.
Double digits already.
We picked up the party cupcakes and then headed to the mall to meet up with her friends.
Fresh Market's cupcakes rock.

So many people loved the idea of a scavenger hunt and wanted to help out.
Great sports and so appreciated!

We wanted everyone to have a good experience and I believe we succeeded.:)

If you're interested in a list of items for your scavenger hunt there are tons of ideas on-line. I'm happy to share our list, too. Feel free to email me. There were over 50 items and after 1 1/2 hours the girls were nowhere near being done!
