Scoobs & the Party

Believe it or not, this was our 'first' birthday party. By first, I mean the first for invites, friends & the whole shabang. And it was really fun...once it was over!

No really, it was fun, but lets not kid ourselves & pretend like we weren't dead tired after the fact. So tired, I think Scot & I put the kids to bed & were in bed ourselves 30 minutes later.

So onto the party details. Truth be told, Scoobs initially wanted a super hero party...ironman, batman, spiderman...all those guys. And frankly, I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Call me mean, but I had no creativity in that direction. So instead, I stole my neighbors idea & we did a 'camping' party, with 17 three and four year-olds.

Here are the details in photos...
We did hot dogs, chips & juice boxes. And 30 seconds after I took this picture, Scoobs threw a Frisbee & knocked over one of the jars filled with water & real goldfish. It was awesome. I got the 'happy birthday' banner at Old Navy for $3...love when that happens. Made the tissue balls & the rest was just stuff I had around. The apothecary jar is filled with marshmallows in different sizes.

The main events of the party were hunting with nerf guns & fishing for goldfish, which they all took home as party favors & every mom was beyond thrilled about. Trust me...mine are still alive & I am looking for a way out!
We opened presents in the tent & it was complete mayhem. Remember there were 17 kids there. Yeah. My mom asked why we invited so many, but believe it or not, they ALL {with exception of 1 cousin} live within walking distance and that is what I love about where I live...so we embraced it. All 17 of them...even though I really felt like this.
We capped the party off with happy birthday & s'more inspired cupcakes, which I have to admit, were mighty tasty. I love a tasty treat that can look cute too.

it is safe to say, prior to her black eye...the Lady thoroughly enjoyed herself, and her cupcake.

and I am pretty sure the birthday boy was please as punch as well. All in all...a success.phew. Happy Birthday to the Scoobs.
