Caleb had his birthday party today (his actual birthday is Tuesday). We had it at "Pump It Up" again this year. I just love this place. It is perfect for birthday parties, especially when your birthday is in August making an outdoor party impossible, unless you want all of your guests to have a heat stroke. Plus the staff does just about everything for you so it takes the pressure off of me....for the most part.
Here are the invitations I made for the party.
They came out pretty cute. They weren't terribly hard to make once I figured out the pattern for them.
Caleb had so much fun in all the different bounce houses. He requires a good bit of help to get up the really big bounce houses, so thankfully daddy and Grandpa Joel were there to make sure he got to do every single bounce house.
Benjamin chose to walk around with Gammy's purse for most of the party. I managed to get him to go down one slide with me but that was all this kid would do. He wanted no part of the crazy bounce house fun. He enjoyed Gammy's purse though.
By some miracle we managed to get a decent group picture. It's not easy to get 15 kids to sit still, look at a camera, and smile. So I was very pleased we managed to get this photo at all.
After plenty of bouncing it was time for CAKE and PRESENTS!
I asked Caleb if he wanted a #6 candle OR 6 candles and he said "both!". So he had a #6 candle with 6 candles around it! I loved watching him open gifts because with each gift the other kids would get closer and closer to him. They were all dying to see what he got and they had to get their hands on it too. It was so cute. Pretty soon there were so many kids around Caleb that I couldn't even get a picture of him, he was totally surrounded. And as usual, Caleb made out like a bandit! Everyone was so generous and gave some really great gifts. Caleb was so excited about every thing he got. And Benjamin has enjoyed playing with all of bubba's new toys too (especially the rc monster truck). All-in-all a great party for our big boy.
One of Caleb's buddies, Nathan, hurt his foot recently so he couldn't come to the party....so we went to see him yesterday instead. Nathan got Caleb a present for his birthday.
Nathan was so cute, as soon as Caleb opened the game he was ready to play!
