The Doc is in So Let the Party Begin!

We had Avery's 3rd birthday party at the park on Sunday, April 30th and it was so much fun. It rained all weekend so we were really nervous that having it at the park wouldn't be a possibility after-all, but it stopped raining just in time for the party and the sun even came out to help dry things out a little bit. :-)

Avery has been Doc McStuffins obsessed for quite some time now. Frozen is quickly becoming a new favorite though so I thought we better go with the Doc theme while we could because I have a feeling we'll be having a Frozen or Princess themed party next year. ;-)

I searched around on Pinterest for some cute invitation inspiration and ended up making this one using this png file from Etsy. 

Party Details:
We had grilled hamburgers and hot-dogs for food, along with chips and a pickle tray. We also had sweet tea and "Lambie's Pink Lemonade" to drink. I ordered the cupcakes from Walmart and they turned out really cute. Then we filled a cooler full of frozen popsicles which was a big hit with the kiddos.

As far as decorations go, I pretty much got everything at Walmart. They had a nice selection of Doc McStuffins party d├ęcor. I tried to keep it simple with it being at the park. My mother-in-law helped quite a bit in getting things ready. She got all of the serving bowls and trays from the Dollar Tree as well as the heart-shaped glass bowls for the centerpieces filled with Hershey Kisses. She also made the pink lemonade as well. I made little favors for each friend to take home but forgot to get a picture of them. :-( They were little snack size baggies filled with 2 band-aids and some Hershey Kisses. The tag said: "Band-Aids for your boo-boos and a few kisses too, Thanks for coming to my party, it was so good to see you!" I got Avery's cute Doc t-shirt from the Disney Store online, which unfortunately I don't see there anymore. :-(

We invited all of our close friends and family and I think everyone had a really great time. The playground was right next to the pavilion, which made it convenient for the kids to play. Avery was spoiled with so many cute toys and clothes.

Here are a few pictures from the party!

Singing Happy Birthday to the Birthday Girl!

She was so excited to open her presents and was so cute with each present. She "read" her cards and said they were to Avery Rose Smith. ;-) She'd open a present and say, "Oh my Gosh!". She was so excited about each gift.

I can't believe she's 3 already! Time flies when you're having fun and we are certainly having fun with our sweet Avery!
