The birthday boy
Mud playdoh we made and trucks to run through the mud
The food tables - I got a lot of cute printables for free and they looked perfect! Unfortunately Grandpa refused to take pictures without me in them! Not so awesome . . .
The cupcake situation
Naturally my son went for the black icing, which most people didn't after I informed them that black icing turns your poop blue :) The fun facts you learn in motherhood!
This photo sums up a lot about my daughters: Marlie was waiting because she wanted to help me serve cupcakes and Samantha was standing close by because she wants to know what's going on, but rather than help she shoved cheese puffs in her mouth :)
It's not a party without a bubble machine
Lots of fun was had just playing outside
And of course there were presents - Sam sat for a picture, but my little book worm wanted to read with her Grandma instead.
Marlie helped the whole time though
And of course there were Grandmas
It was a great party and all the kids had a ton of fun. I liked that it was pretty low key - no real organized activities, but plenty to do at the same time. And everyone took home some homemade mud playdoh and a Home Depot nail apron stuffed with their goodies they dug up in the sand.
