To celebrate this momentous occasion, we had a dinosaur birthday party yesterday.
So you'd think that, being almost the middle of June, the weather would be sunny and warm. But alas. 'Twas 60 degrees, windy and rainy, and nary a glimmer of sunlight could be found. So instead of having 16 children in my spacious backyard, there were 16 crazy 3/4/5/6 year olds in my not-so-spacious basement. Chaotic? Yes. But we made it work.
The plan was to bury dinosaur skeletons in the backyard and have the kids dig them up. Instead, we put them in a piñata (thank you Janica) and let the kids take out their energy by hitting something.
After all the kids had a few tries at whacking the t-rex, the sturdy dino was still intact. So we let Jackson (who should be a pro baseball player) beat the crap out of the sorry creature.
Candy and dinosaur skeletons for all.
Then everyone took turns being a caveman in a T-Rex's mouth.
And here's the inside of the cake. I tried out this rainbow idea and it turned out pretty cool, imho.
Make a wish!
I love my darling Kennedy. She makes me happier than anyone in the world. Happy birthday, my sweetheart!!
