Before we get to the post, I have to say Happy Birthday to my Brother!! Happy Birthday, M!!! We love you so much!!!
PB's birthday is not long after my due date. We talked to him about pushing his party back to April so it would be easier for me with the baby and then my Mom had a great idea. She asked me why we were waiting when we could just do it early before baby comes. Why didn't I think of that?!?! So we kept up with the April lie and decided to make it a surprise party :) His party was this weekend.
Maybe a surprise party was a bad idea. PB got really mad and shy. It was hilarious. I was laughing so hard! It took him a few minutes outside with hubby to be ok with having the party.
Yes, I usually go bananas on a party and make all the food and decorations and everything. (see Kermit party and Timmy Time party from years past) I knew that was not an option this year since his party was scheduled 2 weeks before my due date. I had to have all my ducks in a row and make it nice and easy for Hubby or my Mom to take over just in case baby decided to come early.
I booked a place called Bricks 4 Kidz, it is a franchise. I bought some snacks ordered a giant cookie cake and made some easy favor bags. I did all of this weeks before the party and had everything waiting in hiding.
Check out the lego napkin holder and utensil holder they had at the party place. Cool idea!!
ALSO, here is a free lego font that I used to make name tags for their party bags. Of course I forgot to take a pic :)
Here is an example of what the tags looked like for the bags. They were taped onto red bags. I found the Lego graphic through a google search and changed the color of them.
PB had a few friends at the party. I know I am just showing him, but there were friends there, I promise. They played games. There was a tower building competition and they built cars to race.
And did this cool spin art thing.
The spin art is built from legos and a lego motor with a plate taped on it. They also made little mini figures to take home.
The cookie cake was a hit with all the kids. I ordered it from the grocery store by our house. Next time, no blue icing!!
Here is my 38 week belly with my favorite guys.
I never did a party at a place before and I have to say, I might be addicted. I brought easy food, didn't have to clean my house and when it was over we put lids on all the food containers and just loaded them back in the car. My Mom and Hubby were amazing help. I really didn't do much at the party but take pictures. It was the perfect amount of work for this pregnant lady.
