Spring Break 2013 at Six Flags Magic Mountain !

I absolutely love spring break!  By the time the end of March rolls around, every single member of my family needs a break!  My girls, Adia 14 and Mckenna 9, were counting down the days until they could sleep in and not have to think about getting up early to go to school.  I was also happy as well!  Just thinking about driving Adia to her bus stop so early in the morning that it is still dark outside just made me cringe! My husband, Al, was happy as well but somehow managed to sneak a little work in on his phone while we were in line at Magic Mountain.  Lol!!

This was our third trip to Magic Mountain and definitely not our last.  We are totally in love with Six Flags Magic Mountain as we are the crazy energetic family that tries to ride almost every ride at the park.  We love that their rides are for all ages and now Mckenna can ride some of the bigger ones.  I think I am more afraid of some of the rides than my they are.  I even hear Al scream a few time while my girls laughed!

We are so in love with Valencia and now call it our home away from home!  If I could have a second home, it would be in Valencia for sure!  We always stay at our favorite hotel, Embassy Suites (so comfortable and they have the best breakfast) and visit our favorite mall, Westfield and we can’t forget about our favorite cupcake shop, Velvet Cupcakes!!  So yummy!  There is even a park not too far from our hotel called Valencia Heritage Park that we always visit.  We take the girls scooters with us so the girls can ride them at the park.

Here are a few pictures from our fun time in Valencia!

Easter Eggtravaganza Event at The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale and Aviano!

Parties On Purpose had the pleasure of providing Easter themed Glitter Tattoos for an event last Saturday.  We have a blast!  The event was put on by Aviano and The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale.  We have worked with them in the past and are always so happy when we get to be at one of their events.  Thank you Christy and Caitlin!

There were lots of activities for all the children such as Easter Egg Hunts, a Petting Zoo, Face Painting, Bounce Houses, Games, the Easter Bunny, a Stilt Walker and Glitter Tattoos by Parties On Purpose.  It is always so much fun for us to have a chance to meet all the families.  Fun Fact!  Did you know that we are usually the last vendor to leave at family events (if we are not booked for another engagement right after)!  Why you may ask?  We can’t say no!  We never want anyone who wanted a tattoo to leave without one.  A sad face is truly our kryptonite! Lol!!

Getting ready for the Sweet Heart Cafe

Happy Friday everyone!  I posted a few pictures last Saturday on Face Book but was not able to share them all with you until now.  Laura Maloof and I had so much fun putting this event together or North Ridge Community church.  When the Children’s Ministry Director Bev and Children’s Ministry coordinator Lisa asked for our help, we were more than happy to do so.  Laura and I met up at Hobby Lobby to get a few accessories and I have to say, there’s a lot of LOVE going on in Arizona because the Valentines area was almost sold out!  Wow!  I then ran over of Party City to get some small accessories but I was so happy with these printables I found on Paging Supermom’s blog.

Here’s a few pictures of our event prep…

AZ Bridal Show

This past weekend Parties On Purpose was invited by the one and only Julie Reed of Juju’s Tutu’s to exhibit at the Arizona Bridal Show in Phoenix.  Julie is super talented and makes the most amazing flower girl dresses I have ever seen.  Please check out her sight here.   It was such a fun 2 day event and with over 500 vendors, there were a lot of ideas and information shared for all of the brides.

We had a great time meeting all of the wonderful Brides and putting some awesome wedding inspired glitter tattoos on them as well as some fun ones for all the children.  Check out a few of our photos from the AZ Bridal Show!

Harvest Festival at Windgate Ranch

Parties On Purpose had the pleasure of teaming up with Windgate Ranch in North Scottsdale again for one of their amazing events!  This time it was their Harvest Festival…and boy was it a lot of fun!  There were some really exciting activities for all of the families which included a petting zoo, jumpy house, lots of yummy food, an awesome DJ (who was great!!) and of course Parties On Purpose with some spook glitter tattoos!  We met some really sweet families and caught up with some that we met before.  Thank you to Renee at Windgate Ranch for having Parties On Purpose at your event!   Congrats to both Renee and Carefree Events for creating a memorable celebration!

Parties On Purpose Event Week!

Hi Friends! We had the pleasure of providing our services for some really cool events a little over a week ago. I wanted to make sure you guys got to see all the pictures from these events!

These pictures are from the Boo Bash in North Phoenix.  The event was put on by The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale and Aviano.  They did such an amazing job creating this event.  There were so many fun activities from  jumpy houses, a game truck, a petting zoo, fun games and “spooky” glitter tattoos from Parties On Purpose!

Thank you so much to Caitlin from The Boys and Girls Club Vestar branch and Christy from Aviano for inviting us back!
