It's PARTY time!!

The boys picked a superhero theme for their big party this year. We found a bunch of cute ideas and planned our first destination party, at the park (because all of my mommy friends said it's much easier than party planning and cleaning your house).
We had a very busy week of VBS and had to put together all of the party activities at the last minute, but it got done. We were all ready to go, and then the rain came!! A bunch of rain!! Such a big storm that there was no way that this party could be outside. So, an hour and a half before the party was supposed to start, we cleaned the house threw everything in sight into a closet and prepared for 50 people to arrive shortly!! (This mama was a bit stressed and not prepared for this little change!!)

The boys are very blessed to have such wonderful friends to celebrate with!

One of the fun activities I found was superhero sand art. The kids chose between a Superman or a Batman logo and created some really cute masterpieces

Grayson got the pinata that he wanted (after seeing one at the adoption picnic we went to last weekend). He picked it out himself. It was quite sturdy and took quite a while to break into

The three cakes I made

Happy Birthday to you!!

I also found decorate-your-own masks. Several of the kids made some super creations
 Present time!! It was funny to watch the boys this year. You can see the progression as kids get older. The first year, I opened all of the gifts. The second year, I had a little more help. By the third birthday, they are pretty independent at opening. And now, for the fourth birthday, all of your friends help you open your gifts!!

The rain finally stopped at the end of the party so we could sneak out for a group picture of the boys and their super friends
We did it!! This party was not quite what we had in mind, but it turned out to be really cute and the kids had a blast! Maybe I'll shoot for the park next year
