We celebrated Zachary's birthday this past weekend with a bunch of boys and a bunch of legos. More details of the party stuff here.
He requested a pile of rice krispie treats and push pops instead of cake and ice cream (however, on his actual birthday, this past Mon, I made chocolate chocolate cupcakes with a cream filling that we shared with our Monday night bible study). We also had popcorn, veggies n dip, fresh fruit and cheezit snack mix and Lego fruit snacks. I 'glued' the big candle on the top treat with melted chocolate. I decorated the tables with festive yellow paper table cloths and red and yellow balloons and a few Lego creations of Zachary's.
In the center of our deck I poured a huge pile of Legos on our train table and the boys had a blast building there. We saw who could build the tallest tower without falling. Then they made their own creations to take home.
Everyone seemed to have a blast and this was my easiest party yet.
After all the presents were opened we presented Z with our present. We got him a real live leopard gecko. All the boys got a kick out of this baby reptile cutie (yes, even the moms thought he was cute).
Then when all was said and done a bunch of them squeezed into our big sandbox.
