"I can't wait to come back next year"

That was the best compliment we received last night. One little boy thought the party was so cool he wants invited next time!

We also had a very surprised father say "I had a lot of fun" he seemed to think fun wasn't supposed to happen for the adults or something!

Fortunatly my husband and I (and this fellow) are just plain big kids, so we always have fun!

Though it wouldn't have been nearly as wonderful if it were not for our wonderful friends. One made the icing and managed a wonderful free form dragon on the cake -plus managed to figure out how to make the dragon, One prepped all the fruit and veggies and Snacky stuff -plus kept the kitchen running the whole party and helped everyone figure out the way to difficult craft), while I lazed on the floor making a lego dragon (with help from another friend) and the third took over the grill so my husband could aid in the story telling for the Dragon lair hunt. The lego helper then switched to being the 'minotaur' who wouldn't let anyone into the 'mountains' (JCs room) until it was time - and all the magic words had been found. (They were hidden in GMCs room)

There were a few incidents, boys getting rather rambunctious with balloons and our poor minotaur finally had enough and popped all the balloons. (Can't say as I blame him. he did ask the boys to stop and they were not listening..not sure how to avoid that next year)

My husband not only ate some cake, he had a second slice..he likes my cake, but not my icing Smile so since we had a pro make wonderful icing this year he ate it!

One thing we did different this year, we didn't buy anything we can't eat, so no white buns, just whole wheat (only one kid wouldn't eat em, and he wouldn't eat anything). No yellow mustard (only one kid asked for mustard and he ate spice brown)

So the total cost can be reduced, since we get to eat all the leftovers Smile

No I have to figure out how to make 'Flowers and Fireworks' as much fun (UE and JCs current pick for their party..close together they share - I have time, party in late October/early Novemebr)

    Yay! Boys definitely get a little more rambunctious in coming years (I have a 10 y.o.). Time to move the party to the park soon (we had a skateboard theme this last Feb, I was somewhat worried one of them would break a bodily part, whew!).

    Flowers and fireworks? Maybe, get some extra boxes of sparklers this July 4 and stash them; make tissue paper flower bouquets; don't forget to check

    Fireworks in the hands of little ones scare the daylights out of me! But I bet glitter would make some cool fireworks effects! Flowers, hmmm maybe you could make some cool petal "hats" and all the girls could be flowers. At any rate considering how pregnant you are, I'd start now!!! Glad it was fun, hope there is pictures!

    Sounds like a fun party! The best ones engage both the adults and the kids.
