Dinosaur Party

So this year the boys decided that they wanted their own Birthday Parties. I told them we could go somewhere fun like Kangaroo Zoo if they had one together-(totally easier on the Mom!) But even that didnt convince them. Me being the procrastinator that I am didnt even start planning the parties until a week before, and of course 3 of my kids get sick that week. We almost postponed the parties, but the Doctor assured us they would be fine by that day, and they wouldnt be contagious. So basically that left me everything to do the day before and the day of- ARGGGG! Next year I swear I am going to have everything done before I even send out the invitations.

So since they wanted to have their own parties, but I didnt want people to have to come either 2 weekends, or on a friday and a saturday, I just decided to do one party, lunch, and then the other party. Camerons party ended up being first since there wasnt going to be and water games, and it was still a bit cool in the morning. He decided that he wanted a dinosaur theme.

Dinosaur obstacle course type thingy. They had to jump over "tar pits" to help hatch baby dinosaurs. In the background you can see the dinosaur egg pinatas we made, and kinda the big T-Rex footprints leading up to our house.

Volcano cake. Doesn't look that great- by the time I got around to decorating this, I had like no time left, so yeah- but Cameron still liked it and thought it was cool- so I guess that is what really matters.

Cam and his cake.

Dino egg invites.

Each kid got to make a volcano erupt.

Digging up dinosaur bones and eggs.

Excavating the dinosaur bones from sand. Putting the dinosaur puzzles together that were in the eggs.

Making our own fossils.
