The Birthday P-A-R-T-Y!!!
This year we had our first "official" birthday party! I knew it was coming when Ethan asked last year on his birthday: "Mom, where are my friends?" This year Ethan could choose 2 birthday buddies to come for his P-A-R-T-Y! The chosen: Zach and Sam
Here's a look at all our fun!

1st stop: A quick play outside
note: the swords and shields lasted about 20 minutes and then had to be put away due to MULTIPLE "injuries"!
Back inside to make KNIGHTS and DRAGONS!
Daddy cutting out armor...
Finished fire breathing dragons!
Finished knight, ready to battle!
Dinner time!

Ethan's choice: CHINESE (his all-time favorite food)

DRAGON CAKE...
and the valiant dragon slayer!
here's a closer look at the dragon: fruit by the foot fire!
his head and tail are rice crispy treats! YUMM-O!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ETHAN!!
