Back to School ....soon!

We have 3 boys back on Tuesday and 1 back on Wednesday so I decided to throw them a party...

Scott: 'mam why would we have a party to go back to school - we arent happy??'

Me: 'I am and thats worth a party!' lol

So, what with my kids and my sister 2 little ones I set about making a Back to school party..
We had green apple cakepops, a 6 layer apple cake, eton mess, fresh apples, bottles of milk with paper straws (you had to give the answer on the straw to get the bottle) and keylime pie marshmallows.
The kids were all given lots of goodies to play with including a new back to school backpack, pencils, books etcand a little tin lunchbox which we filled with ham sandwiches and crisps :)They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and kept running outside to the trampoline pretending they were going on a school trip! lolThis last 6 weeks have flown over and although im sad to see the boys all go back to school i will be happy to finally be able to clean a room and have it tidy for at least half the day!! lol
