The Mane Event - A Summary

So! You want to know what happened at the party? Well, you should have been there! Since you weren't though, I'll do my best to share what I can actually remember.

The party was scheduled from 1:00 until 3:30 pm on Saturday, March 25 at our ward.

At 1:00 the children began to arrive and they were invited to play "Lion, Lion, Hyena!" while we waited for everyone else. They also received a name tag that had their name (doh!), a lion (colored in one of four colors), and 6 empty squares on it.

At 1:15 we went on a "Lion Hunt"

At 1:20 we divided up into teams, and started group rotations. Every 15-20 minutes we rotated groups, and I think that we might have been able to pull it off better if we had rotated every 10-15 minutes instead. But we survived. It's hard to plan these things. Each group visisted the "Big Game Room" twice, the "Small Game Room" once, and the "Craft Room" once.

At 2:40, the rotations were over, so we lined up for the pinata and marched our way up the stairs to the 'Cultural Hall' where the lion bashing and smashing began.

By 3:00 we were back downstairs, sang "Happy Birthday" to The Pink Princess, and started opening presents while the cake was being sliced and served.

By 3:20 everyone was eating cake and ice cream, and I was frantically stuffing goodie bags.

Parents started arriving shortly before and after 3:30, and everyone thanked us profusely, adults and kids alike. It seemed like everyone had a great time. All that was left was clean-up, and a couple of Moms even stayed and helped us with that. We were on our way home by 4:15.

So, that's all you need to know, right?

What? You want more details? And pictures? Oh, OK! Keep reading, and I'll keep typing!
