When my sister picked us up from the airport, she said, “We might have a birthday party for John tomorrow. I haven’t decided.”
“Have you invited people?” I asked.
“Well, yes. But I could always cancel.”
No way, could we let that happen. After Legoland we went into party planning overload.
While shopping for supplies, we found these fabulous bunny cups at Target. Think sippy cups are just for toddlers? Au contraire.
Gabe is too lost in Legoland to help with parties.
Every Phineas & Ferb episode begins with sitting by a tree.
and Doofenshmirtz is always the villain; so he’s a perfect pinata. Thankfully, Ruth has a genius artist friend, Jordan, who also helped us at the last minute.
Doofenshmirz was hidden in Perry the Platypus
before meeting his fate.
John was a bit of a candy hog– but hey, it’s his birthday.
Everyone made blueprints for fabulous inventions because P&F are always making blueprints.
I especially like Mary’s plans.
Next, the kids made their own versions of “Balloonie” a favorite P&F episode.
My sister displayed true genius in buying $1 model kits from Michael’s throwing all the pieces on the table and encouraging kids to invent something new.
Of course we need a Perry cake.
After dessert, our partyers demonstrated their skills on air guitars. 😉
Ruth dubbed Xander the “Party Master” for his cheerful and creative help.
On baptism day I took everyone to the beach so my sister could plan yet another party. It seemed fitting to get completely dirty the day of Johns’ baptism.
Hair still wet from the font. Clean and fresh, adorable as can be.
Eight year old cousins.
We left early Sunday morning, but not before the cousins could fit in a little Fruit Ninja, story time by the window, just enough hugs and kisses until next time.
