treasure hunt party

We celebrated June29's sixth birthday a few days early at the neighborhood park known as "The Rock Playground." The great thing about hosting a party at a park with a killer play structure is that the kids are fully occupied and do not get bored. Even so, we decided to do one organized game as the grand finale: a treasure hunt with a map, treasures and all.

austin's birthday party

I'm not much of a DIY-er. I'd rather pay a professional than spend hours in frustration trying to work with my hands. But recently, I found myself volunteering to make the invitations as well as the favors and cupcakes for my best friend's three year-old's birthday. I trust myself when it comes to the first. Here is the story of why I've got some practice in store for me on the second and third.

an artistic birthday

For June29's Big 5, we wanted to celebrate by doing something different. That year, we attended eight bounce house parties and despite June29's declaration to have his at one too, we calmly (ok, selfishly) tried to convince him otherwise. November3 came up with the idea of hosting an art class party taught by his phenomenal teacher in her studio. I thought it was brilliant. Surprisingly, J29 liked the idea. Really, he did. The kids would learn something new and the parents could drop them off - all in the name of a birthday bash. Is there a better combo?
