Life would be a lot easier if you joined FB. I'm so informative and awesome there. It's so easy to load things. You have your reasons, I get it it. But sharing a big batch of Thing 3's birthday bash would be a lot easier if you'd just drink the koolaid... Whatevs. I'm the best daughter ever. I'm going to blog about it like a cavemom, since I know you can find websites.
I casually mentioned the Construction theme to a friend and she revealed that it was a life goal to build a deconstructed construction birthday cake. I'm kind and magnanimous, so I let her make it.
There are birdhouse kits under the hats. Also there are hats.
I used our For Magic to make an archway - I like having some kind of entrance for a party, and hot dang I'm doing this from now on.
The UPS guy was kind of worried about all the caution tape. Ha!
This was an unexpected hit - a warm up activity as people arrived was to hammer golf tees into cardboard boxes. The girls especially got pretty violent - kinda funny, it's always the quiet ones who are into hammers.
Hammers! Extra adults! (I've taken to inviting the entire family of the kid's friends - not just a huge pile of kids their age. So there are kids of all ages, I get to hang out with my friends and the kids are all comfortable with each other.)
Life is good.
Not pictured: While the other adults cut up the cake, we had a freeze dance party. I worked off at least half a bite of cake.
Aaaand, there's our 4 year old. Every blasted picture was blurry because 4 years old, duh. These were the least blurry:
You are now welcome to call me up and gush about how awesomesauce this was.
