A Creepy Crawly Splash Party!

Saturday afternoon T-Rex had his 4th Birthday Party. It was an All Things Creepy and Crawly party. We envited all of our friends and set up 2 big kid pools, 3 baby pools, 1 slip and slide and a sand table in the backyard for a splashin good time. We ate hotdogs and chips for dinner and just enjoyed watching our little man have an awesome time playing with all his friends in the water and in the sand. I made a Bug Mountain cake that was super simply and super fun for the kids! He loved it and had to add a few more creepy crawlers to it for me. Before the party he had the whole place to himself and he just enjoyed all the pools, slide and sand before they were all invaded, I so enjoyed watching him :0). Here are some pics from his party (they appear backwards from the end of the party to the beginning because blogger doesn't want to allow me to drag them to any other place):

We went to the front yard for the finale: a Lightning McQueen pinata

Here is the birthday boy surrounded by his friends singing the birthday song to him!

Daddy showing them all "how it's done"

Before the party started just enjoying it all to himself.

Him racing down to the slip in slide while I catch a pic of the baby area.

Adding a crucial bug to his Bug Mountain cake :0)

The finished product: the 4th Birthday Cake for my T-Rex, All Things Creepy and Crawly lover.

It was a lot of work, but it was ALL worth it and I would do it all again just to see the joy on his face. God has blessed me with a beautiful child that I have been given the amazing privilege of being his mother, thank you Lord. Tomorrow is his actual birthday and it, if I have my way, will be special! I have plans for the entire day, full of fun activities for us to do to honor our birthday boy.

JOYfully in Him,

What a fun party! I am sure you are the coolest mom on the block. :-)

And I am sorry,but that cake is definitely creepy! I don't think I could have eaten a piece....but I suppose I should prepare for such things. My boy is already 1 1/2 and on his way to being all boy!

Happy 4th Birthday!!! Looks like an awesome party-- one that all of my boys would love! Too bad Dozer's b-day is in November... but we can still have the bug cake and with the Texas weather, maybe we'll still be swimming by then. :-)

Don't forget to change his age on your sidebar!
