So this year was the magic six! Sam was extremely excited for his birthday. We decided that we would have a small party at our home with a few buddies. We invited eight friends to come and celebrate. Our theme was of coarse LEGO! Well I don't know who was more excited us or Sam. We planned and shopped and crafted up a storm. Our home was filled with bright cheery lego colours. We had posters made, lego men avatars for each child, a custom lego cake made by Daddy, lego bins for our chips and drinks, lego garland and much more. We had our party on the Saturday which ment lots of set up Friday night. Darren & I we organizing a lego build for each child which ment verifying the adequate amount of pieces for the build. During the week building up to the party Darren constructed a ramp to race the lego after the build.
Once our friends had started to arrive we enjoyed a few pre party races then when the group was complete we commenced some games such as guess how many lego in the jar. Lego drop from different heights into a bucket. We took a break for some pizza, veggies, fruit and chips. Then we headed into the dining room for the lego build. All the kids did great some need assistance but overall it was a success. After everyone was done we moved the table and did a quick game of pin your personal avatar on the giant lego man. Finally we headed in the family room for the lego races with their builds.
A round of Happy Birthday was sung cake and cupcakes were consumed and a disorganized session of unwrapping the gifts commenced and our party was over.
While that party was ending we did a quick clean up and refreshed the food and bevies and our families showed up to celebrate with us for the remainder of the evening.
Sam had the best birthday ever(well until next year right?)
We spent his actual birthday at the Santa Claus parade downtown it was a great adventure.
Thanks to all who came and celebrated with us and to those of you who sent birthday wishes.
