I have loads to talk about but I figured I'd start out with a post about the little man's 5th birthday party. This was the first time we've ever done a party with friends from school. It was lots of fun but way more stressful for me. We got a picnic shelter at a nearby park. It rained so I was very thankful for the shelter, plus we had a lovely view!
This is at Lake Wilderness Park. We kept having small flocks of ducklings swimming up to the shore too, free entertainment for the kiddos.
Little man wanted a Lego themed party, so after scouring pinterest and feeling slightly intimidated by all the crazy ideas, I narrowed it down to a few that I could pull off in my time frame.
I made a Lego beanbag toss game complete with the brick shaped beanbags.
I got the idea here.
Mainly the kids ran around, played at the nearby playground and chased a giant beach ball.
I made chocolate cupcakes with gummy candy Lego guys. I have to give credit to the little man for requesting sprinkles last minute. It really pulls the look together on these.
There were 10 different faces to choose from, each with a twisty straw, those hard building brick candies and a mystery minifigure.
The next day consisted almost entirely of putting together and playing with new Lego sets, so that was fun. All in all a successful 5th birthday! (oh my gosh he's five! Where does that time go?!)
Bye for now.
