IT HAPPENED! The boys have talked about having a Star Wars birthday party FOREVER! Easy enough for me to do one theme for the three of them. When they were younger I picked the theme since they really didn't care. Last year and this year I lucked out that they wanted the same theme! I am prepared that in the future I may not get so lucky...
As I already blogged, all the Star Wars party prep was completed. The weather forecast went from 78 degrees, to thunder storms, to sunny, to 50 degrees... you get the picture. We ended up mid 50's and cloudy. Which means we were able to use the boys birthday presents of Dan's hard work over spring break - their outside play area! Just add friends and hoodies!
I had to narrow down the pictures. A special thanks to my friend Beth who took over some of the photography - which means I actually made it into some of the pictures! I have not had the chance to edit or crop any of the photos... so please bear with them.
I tried to narrow it down, but then I also wanted you to get the fun spirit of the actual party. I'm guessing only the grandparents will make it through all 40 photos....
soooo ENJOY OUR STAR WARS 5th BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!
Not too cold for these kiddos!

However the blue icing does THIS...
The pinata all set up and ready to go! Looks a little creepy doesn't it?

He made up a game we call "popcorn". The kids LOVE it!

Hey, I spotted a little storm trooper walking around...
Mary Mckenzie chewing on the wrong end of her lightsaber
Storm Trooper nerf guns!
Our own folding chairs!
As the boys went outside to fly their new kites, I found everything lined up. I think it was a cross between the boys making sure they had ownership of their stuff and my mom lining it all up...
Their chairs with their guns in the cup holders, and bags filled with everything else.
It was a FUN time! Thanks to all our friends that made it out to the party!!!
