I think I already posted a picture of the invites but here they are again.
I didn't really get a chance to take very many pre-party pictures since I was running around like a crazy person trying to get everything ready (note to self: next time don't commit to 4 parties the same weekend you are trying to host one. Especially when you are baking and decorating your own cake and cupcakes and making all the party food. Definitely not my smartest move!). Thankfully my mom came over early to help with some of the food prep. (Thanks, Mom!)
|Welcome, happy campers! Please ignore all the weeds ;)|
|The letters are twigs I hot glued on to a painted board|
Here is the food table:
The menu included:
* kids in a blanket (pigs)
* sleeping bags (pinwheels)
* fire logs (pretzel rods)
* mud pie (chocolate pudding trifle)
* grizzly bears (teddy grahams)
* fish bait (gummy worms)
* catch of the day (goldfish)
* sticks & trees (veggie sticks & broccoli)
* s'mores cupcakes
* birthday cake
* s'mores supplies for roasting
We had a fishing booth where the kids "caught" packages of goldfish.
|pay no attention to the man behind the box|
And then there was a scavenger hunt.
We also had sack races! I had some leftover burlap in the closet and made 3 toddler-sized sacks...and I'm so glad I did because it was pretty darn entertaining. :)
|Not sure why H has on a fire helmet but it's pretty funny with his shirt, lol|
|Uh oh! One man already down.|
|And down goes Brody next|
|Did I mention it was very entertaining?|
|The older boys went next|
|And then it was the girls' turn!|
Some more pictures from the festivities:
|Harper with her Unkie|
|Don't feed the bears!|
|Playing his air guitar|
|And in heaven after he got his "real guitar without eyes just like Kenny has". The jury is still out on whether he's going to be a lefty or a righty.|
Then it was time for cake:
|Huffing and puffing...|
|And spitting the candles out!|
And then time for s'mores!
I tried to get a picture of the birthday boy with his sister but this is all I got:
|Look at the camera and smile? Um, no thank you.|
|I think I'll steal sissy's collection instead.|
It was a fun party. Thank you to everybody who helped us celebrate our sweet little 3 year old!
