Let me give you a tip, throwing a double birthday party with a close friend(Sarah) is the only way to throw a party. It makes planning way more fun, it's way less work and money.
Every time Harper plays at Franco's house their favorite thing to do is dress up like super heroes and march around the living room to super hero theme songs. SO it was pretty obvious what the birthday party theme was going to be.
The party was at 3pm at hillside park. We served some super hero munchies and had some fun things planned for our heroes. First when you arrived, you could decorate your own mask.
Then we got all the super heroes and played freeze dance to super hero music(of course.)
Next up..Learning how to fly. All the super heroes flew(ran) down the hill to save the day. This was the hit of the party. The kids kept running up and down the hill.
Then we sat the kids in a circle for a quick Happy Birthday.
Followed by a game of pass the kryptonite. When you got out, you got to eat your cupcake or cake pop. So that way there were no sad losers.
Of course it's not a party unless you have a piniata. We got a pretty tweaked looking spiderman one. That thing would not go down though.
It ended up being a low stress, way fun party. Harper was in heaven. Now every time he puts on his cape he tells me, OK mama lets go to my birthday party.
Thank you everyone who came to celebrate with us.
