The last 3 years we have been lucky enough to have Owen’s birthday party surrounded by friends and family. This year was no different, and we were able to have all of the fun outside (thank goodness).
This year Owen chose to have a construction themed party (or a “worker party” as he calls himself when he’s playing with his tools). So I got busy pinning ideas on Pinterest, and then giving my dad and Tony things to complete :). They did a great job making my vision come to life. We had a bounce house, 2 photo props, 3 construction truck racers, house painting, coloring, cone toss, hammering, and a wrecking ball game. The 20 or so kids had a great time doing everything.
Owen even invited some of his friends from school. It was so much fun seeing him play with all of his friends. The kids were busy playing all afternoon – fueled by sugar.
We had a cupcake cake and dirt complete with a gummy worm for dessert. Everyone went home with a Home Depot tool belt, safety glasses, and a tool shaped lollipop.
It’s crazy to think that Owen is already 4 years old. He’ll be starting pre-k soon. This is the last year before he goes to school every day. It can get stressful when I’m bouncing between playgroups and running errands in the middle of the week, but I need to step back and remember that this isn’t going to last much longer. His tantrums are just a phase (they better be), and soon he will be getting on the school bus and won’t have much time for his mommy anymore.
