And Then Came the Party

Last week we had the birthday...
This week we had the party!!!

We had originally planned on being out of town last weekend so we planned Big E's birthday party for this weekend. His daycare sends him down to gymnastics once a week and he always loves it. We noticed a while ago that they host birthday parties there so we decided that it'd be a great place for kids to have fun.

They swung from the ropes...

And jumped in the foam pits... And swung on ropes into foam pitsAnd bounced on the trampolines... And slid down the slides...Even the adults played... Everybody had a great time during the gymnastics hour!

We were going to continue the Harry Potter theme from the week before with a Nimbus 2000 or a Firebolt cake but E had already picked out Dinosaur plates and stuff. We convinced him that a volcano cake would fit in with the prehistoric theme a little better (of course I was just trying to work in a bowl cake). He was a bit skeptical until he saw the smoke and lavaWe ate sandwiches for lunch then got on with the festivities. The Birthday Boy blew out the candles...Then opened some gifts...... before calling it a day.

Having the party hosted by Gem State Gymnastics made it easy and stress-free for us and fun for the kids.
