The following weekend, we had our first birthday party away from home. Collin chose to have a teenage mutant ninja turtle party at karate! I think this might have been our most fun birthday party so far. While I secretly love spending time crafting things for parties and getting the house all set up, I have to say it was really nice to just be able to enjoy the party this time. And the kids had an absolute BLAST! Since it was at karate, we were able to invite a LOT of kids. Collin loved having all of his family and friends there to celebrate with him. I did make a banner (well, I modified a store bought banner) because it's impossible to find TMNT party supplies that aren't vintage or discontinued (and therefore, really expensive).
|The birthday boy all ready for the party!|
|Little sister too. Again, so excited to be on that mat!|
|One of the highlights...Collin got to be a black belt for the day!|
|Love this action shot of sweet Ethan! So glad he finally got out there!|
|Katelyn just wanted to hang out with Collin's instructor. She loves him.|
|Love this one of Lilia too!|
|Ready for some dodge ball!|
|Great cousin action shot!|
|Katelyn won the girls game of dodge ball by just standing there being her sweet self.|
|Collin breaking his first board!|
|Love this little throne they made out of karate pads!|
|Blowing out all 6!|
|His yummy cookie cake.|
Happy 6th Birthday Buddy!
