Party Time

A couple weeks ago our space loving boy turned the big FOUR! He's been pretty excited for his birthday and for his space birthday party! Since there apparently aren't very many space loving kids left, we had to do most of the party stuff ourselves. But it was fun to work on the decorations and invitations and stuff together. Evan loves helping Mom use the Cricut!
We had hung up the solar system above the table Friday night after Evan went to bed. When he came out Saturday morning, he took a few minutes to look at it and then told me that Uranus was too close...!

We just invited all the kids in his Sunbeam class. Everyone made us pretty nervous, but all the boys ended up coming! I was so glad and so relieved! And it turned out to be a pretty fun party! First we started off with 'Pin the Rocket Boosters on the Spaceship'. I think Evan was the only one who played the first time around, unless of course you count Ryder's mom!
Then we headed out back to have 'Rocket Races'. I found these cool little rocket balloons at Michael's and the kids loved them way more than I thought they would!
Then we drew a big circle on the patio with chalk to make a moon and the boys took turns throwing water balloons at it to make 'craters'. They loved it and I should have known to make more water balloons!
Next we headed back inside to open presents and then have cake and ice cream.
Here's the awesome 4-year-old with his moon cake

 I love these little friends!
He's already excited about turning 5...
Happy Birthday Ev! We sure love you a lot!

It was a great party. Evan has an awesome mom--the decorations and cake were fabulous. Thanks for inviting us old folks. And for the record Ryne was there even though Evan insists he wasn't.
