Here is the invitation I made.
Then they went outside with their goodie bags for an archaeological dig to find treasures of seashells, snakes, frogs, and dinosaurs. After that they filled up their bags with candy from the Dinosaur pinata (no picture--we were too busy keeping order to the madness.)
Then it was time for some Simon (a.k.a. Sean) Says. I think "Simon" really enjoyed this part.
The party concluded with a Volcano Cake (Colton's special request). This is the best I could do.
He also loved all his gifts and has been playing with his new fun things everyday since.
When the party was over, the mess cleaned up and quiet again in my house. I reflected back on the birthdays we've enjoyed for our Colty.
Birthday One: Pool Party, which was mostly just our friends over for a Saturday afternoon in the sun.
Birthday Two: A movie "Cars" party and luau by the pool (again) but this time the kids actually enjoyed the water and could almost swim.
Birthday Three: A "Thomas the Train" party at the Forest Park Miniature train. All our friends, family and kiddos enjoyed a southern fried chicken picnic and a train ride through the park.
Birthday Four: A "Spiderman" party. With white streamers all over the house like a web and some superhero games like "Pin the web on the Bad Guy" and "Hero, Hero, Villain" (aka Duck, Duck Goose), with of course a Spiderman pinata.
I wonder what themed parties I have in store for the future with my imaginative Colton. Despite the stress and work, I look forward to each one because it's all worth it to see his dazzling happy smile.
The Birthday Boy--Big Five!
