We celebrated my son's 6th birthday last week. He had his official party on Saturday but his birthday was actually on Wednesday. I made him a little cake in the shape of Kipper, one of his favorite book/cartoon characters, and gave him his gifts from us. Then Saturday the rest of the family came and his friends from school. That was at Chuck E. Cheese which, my friend, is the loudest place on earth. And possibly the best place for a kid to go cray cray.
The little "at-home" party
A bike, NintendoDS Legos game, bubble tape, a ring pop and the cutest little card with a puppet pig
The version of the Kipper cake I found online and then my version:
On Saturday he got a much needed haircut and then he rocked it out at Chuck E Cheese with his friends from school. He had a blast. Slightly obnoxious for parents but the kids ate.it.up.
The ticket blaster with his best friend
All in all - a great day for everyone. The best part - I didn't have to clean up!!! YAY!!
