Jeremy's 4th Birthday Party!!
We started off with a rousing game of Bed Bugs.
(Which Jeremy needed earmuffs for because the game is "too loud.")
Then we had the kids be exterminators and do a bug hunt! I made this little teepee, filled it with balloons and then "hid," plastic bugs beneath the balloons. One at a time we had the kids go in the tent with a butterfly net and search for bugs. We gave them each 15 seconds and then counted up how many bugs they caught.
The kids all wanted a turn blowing up balloons. It didn't matter that we had plenty for the teepee.
The balloons ended up being a major source of entertainment,
from hitting them up in the air to taking their Capri Sun straws to them.
We also went outside to play for a bit, but forgot to bring the camera out. We tried to have the kids play bocce (pronounced bow-chay, not like the Star Wars language), but they were too interested in running around free and playing with other lawn toys.
Jeremy wanted a firefly cake. This was my best attempt.
I put neon green sprinkles on the butt of the bug to give the appearance of glowing :)
Waiting for the cake!
Happy Birthday Jeremy!
Don'tcha love how kids swarm together when one of them is opening a present?
This was Jeremy's first birthday party with friends and I think it was a success. The kids seemed to have fun and Jeremy is still flying high playing with his presents.
Thanks to everyone who came!
