Birthday Flashback

Tip Junkie is featuring birthday parties for kids this week and in honor of her I decided to dig up these old pictures and show you my favorite birthday bash I have thrown for my kids. When Aidan turn 3 we celebrated hero style. He was loving to dress up and in particular he loved Superman. We invited his buddies and they all received a Superman cape with the letter of their first name on it instead of an S. We decided to party at the park to give more running room and less clean up. Here is a picture of the boys all decked out in their capes. We had a Bad Guy Hunt (much like an Easter egg hunt but with little plastic bad guys as the objects). The boys enjoyed it!

Next we did a Hero training course or obstacle course which was pretty simple and really didn't hold their attention all that great but it was another simple and fun activity.

We were at the park so we had to give them a chance to play. They were cute on the swings in their capes. It looked like they were flying.

And I simply had to include Super girl (yes that is Becca- she was one)

Aidan was not so sure about all the attention when we sang to him so he hid under the table cloth like a good hero would.

And here they are racing towards me. It was a fun cute party.

By the way...I was featured on Tip Junkie earlier this week for Becca's princess castle at her Princess Party. You should go check it out and look at all the other cute party ideas.

What a cute idea! I work at a bakery and it's nice to see parents do different parties for their kids than the average party. How cute where the capes!?!

That is awesome you have some friends that are moving to Ecuador! Travis had a great trip and loved the people there. He said the kids are starved for attention from any sort of male adults. Our church does a lot of work in Ecuador and supports a family down there as missionaries. They are Leith and Amy Camden and they have 4 children. I believe they live in Quito. We also have several more families preparing to move at the beginning of 2009. I wouldn't be surprised if they ran into each other through the work that is being done down there!
