There's a special party for a birthday boy
And your invited to show
But don't tell K because he doesn't know
So if you can make it, here's a word to the wise
Make sure to be prompt 'cause it's a surprise
We're excited to see what his face will be showing
We hope it will have not a trace of him knowing.
K's Surprise Birthday Party
The poor little fellow has been asking about his party all week long. We planned to take a few friends to the Discovery Museum after toiling with a dozen other ideas. However, it just didn't feel right, even after all these weeks of tossing out ideas and finally picking one. It came to me in the middle of the night and it felt like the right thing to do. After passing the above "book club" invitations to his friend's mamas we were set to go.
The kids were so excited to hide behind the couches, jump out, scream "surprise," and pop their confetti at him. His face went from sad, to blank, to happy enough. After he tackled his friends the party began.
We played games,
had a light lunch and cupcakes
and hit a pinata.
It was complete chaos in the best way possible. There were a few close melt downs I was able to distract. One which included my own. I took video footage of the surprise and then soon after it was all done I noticed I didn't have the recorder on. sniff, sniff....Better luck next time.
He got tons of fun stuff including 6 bionicles none of which were the same. How cool is that? He got one for Christmas and loves it. Thanks to his buds he has a nice collection and is one happy kiddo.
And hey since we're all cleaned up why not try a picture of all of us for once.
