His "real" birthday was on Tuesday, November 6th, but Cody was not home from working out of town so we did not celebrate until that Saturday. He woke up on Saturday and informed me that his real birthday was today. LOL. I guess you don't officially have a birthday unless you have friends and presents.
The party was only 1.5 hours, but totally long enough for a bunch of 5 & 6 year boys. I was really hoping for a nice warm day and getting a bounce house. Then I was really hoping for even a 50 degree day and a bounce house. Still no such luck, so I scrambled for in- house things to do with the boys.
I found out that it does not take much for boys to get excited about anything!
When they first got to the house each of them got their very own superhero cape with their own initial on it (thanks to my wonderful mom who can sew like nobody else!) and then they decorated their own superhero cuffs (made out of toilet paper rolls).
Once the bad guys were defeated we were ready for some pinata fun! Yes, I made the pinata and it is not one to brag about, but I did it in a few days time and the kids still had a great time batting that thing open!
Once all the candy was collected, we went back inside to open presents and have cake and ice cream.
Cayden had a great time and I think 4 other little boys did too!
