Where The Wilds Thing Are Birthday!

We had a great party today! Collin had a great time. Really, he enjoyed every second of his party. We invited 3 of Collin's little friends to celebrate with us along with Grandma and Grandpa Sheep and Grandma Polar Bear.

I really had a great time preparing for this party and was happy with how it turned out. Here are some pics of the details:

the scene

the adorable, happy, birthday boy

First we read the book . . .

the kids were so cute roaring their terrible roars on their bellies

then we played PIN THE TAIL ON MAX . . .

we had trouble finding a blindfold that would stay on their little heads, so i finally resorted to using ruby's sleep mask

the kids were a little wary about not being able to see. i think every one of them peeked.

After that we played Max, Max, Wild Thing (Duck, Duck, Goose) and had a WiLd RuMpUs!

for the wild rumpus the kids sprayed silly string all over each other and us.

And finally we opened presents and had cake and ice cream. MMmm good!

collin looking a little shocked that one of his friends blew out his candles before he did. too bad the picture of him blowing them out turned out blurry.

Happy Birthday Collin!
Thanks for coming to celebrate Collin's birthday with us. It wouldn't have been the same without you guys.

Such a cute theme. I bet he loved it. Is that a Baby Lilac eye mask I see on Colin? My good friend started that company. She's awesome.
