K-man was really excited to have a friend party this year. He had a blast and the party was a total success! It worked out perfect because we had beautiful weather and were able to hold the party in our garage and play outside. We ended up with 25 kids ages 6 months to 16 years old; 1 dad (Shawn), 4 moms and Mrs. Doering (our MN grandma).
We invited families from 4-H and homeschoolers from our church since it was during the day ended up with kids of various ages so everyone had someone to play with.
Of course he wanted a NASCAR theme again. He knows what he likes!
Since the best time for us to hold the party was during the day, we decided to serve lunch after homeschool 4-H.
After lunch and cake we played a few games that K-man picked out.
First, we played Pit Crew. The kids were blindfolded, spun around and then had to put the car parts in the correct location. This was fun for the kids and funny for the adults to watch.
After a few games he wanted to have time to play and shoot hoops with his friends.
He opened presents.
The birthday party crowd. (minus a few that didn't make the picture, I know one of mine was inside playing kitchen in her room with her friend.)
We ended the party by skating at the indoor ice arena. The kids had fun playing freeze tag with each other.
A Huge thanks goes out to Mrs. Doering who helped me serve lunch and cleaned up while we were keeping everyone busy! I know I couldn't have done it without her.
We also celebrated his birthday with both sets of grandparents when they came up to visit, but I'll have to save those pictures for another day.
