Oh my goodness. So. Much. Fun!
This year, because of the moving, we weren’t sure we would have a house in LaPlace in May or June (unfortunately we did, but that’s another story for another day). Anyway, because of this, we decided to join teams with the Safley’s and have a joint birthday party for Cohen and their son, Lyons (who was turning 4). The boys decided on a Ninja Turtle theme.
First, here is my birthday boy acting crazy!
How old are you?
Fun treat bags. I made the turtle heads, mouths, and masks with my silhouette cameo.
Two birthday boys means…TWO CAKES! HORAY!
Here is Lyons’ birthday cake, made especially for him by his mom, Katie.
Jace made Cohen’s cake and I think it looks pretty amazing!
Can’t wait to dig in!
So, for the party, as usual, we rented a water slide. A big, fun, colorful, wet, water slide. Unfortunately, the weather for the day of the party was predicted to be terrible. Rain. Thunderstorms. Lightening. The slide rental company and I discussed it and I didn’t want to risk it, so we decided to cancel the slide. Boo!
No problem though. The weather turned out to be GREAT! We made do with a homemade water slide using the play set, a sprinkler, black tarps and some tear free shampoo (to make it easier to slide).
Here are the birthday boys checking out the slide contraption.
Really, this worked out great! The kids really had a ton of fun. Just goes to show that you don’t have to spend a small fortune to make kids happy. They really are easy to please.
Some of our guests opted to stay indoors away from all that wet, water fun. Here is Cohen’s Aunt Trix, MitMit, Meme, and his newest cousin Haddie.
I think these girls were having a bit too much fun!
Back outside, the kids were still having fun!
Brue says “I want a turn on that fun water slide!”
Anna Morgan sent us some of the CUTEST Ninja Turtle cookies! That girl is so talented!!
Katie decorated the front door with some turtles. I love that she used green plates for their heads! Very crafty!!
Please excuse the poor lighting. I’m no professional!
Outside again. Eating the Turtles favorite food…PIZZA!
Make a wish.
After SEVERAL hours outside on the water slide, we came in and turned on the XBox. The adults had lots of fun with it!
We had a TON of fun at this party! It was so nice sharing the day with Lyons, and his family.
