The Birthday Party
As everyone arrived, they were led to a bounce house with a slide. Two of Bubba's very favorite activities on this Earth are jumping (he spends a lot of time in time out for jumping on the couch) and sliding, so this was perfect. No parents were allowed in the gym area, but I don't even think he noticed once he figured out what was going on here.
Yup. So proud. We were watching from a gallery upstairs and I honestly felt so helpless and embarrassed because I couldn't do anything about it. Fortunately, after a couple of minutes a few more boys got up and joined him. It's funny though, because all the little girls stayed sitting and listening nicely on the rug.
After playtime (which also involved a HUGE trampoline - YESSSSS!!!) was over, all the kids came upstairs for cake. The party had a Thomas the Tank Engine theme. Aren't the decorations cute? I loved the detail of using the wooden tracks to hold the balloons.
That cake was massive, but it was SO GOOD. How cute are the cupcakes too? She even had Thomas cake pops shaped like little trains. My favorite thing though were the drinks - they had juice in plastic soda bottles with custom labels and cute striped paper straws. Right before the kids came in they dropped something (I really need to ask what) into them to make them fizz and smoke. I don't think it was dry ice because he was doing it with his bare hands. It looked really cool though.
They're not all looking at the camera, but I have to say that I am pretty darn impressed that they are at least all together and facing the same direction! Not bad for a room full of toddlers... or are they considered preschoolers now?
