We had a lot of fun... until that is my youngest puked on the kitchen floor during cutting the cake. THAT did put a damper on things. I told her it was a major party foul. But because of that I missed getting very many pics of the kiddos. Really meant to get a group shot, but I was busy bathing a pukey 2 yr old and then holding her wrapped in her blanket for the rest of the evening.

The little tent on the right there is just cardboard covered in camo fabric and then a cardboard "5" glued on. The grass is just a bit of felt that I cut up. The flag on top is felt that I hot glued on too.I missed getting pics of the all the food, but the menu for the evening was:
Sloppy Joes (I also added a couple cans of baked beans to mine)
Veggies with ranch dip
Snagged these pine cones from the school's pick up line (It's lined with tons of pine trees). Then just hot glued them to some twine.
In the goody bags, I put Trail Mix and Flashlights.
|Here's a pic of Huds helping me fill the goody bags. He was so sweet to help.|
Hudson wanted his tent on the back porch for his friends to play in. I made sure to put some bug spray out there for them too.
Hudson got some camo paint from one of his friends and had to try it out immediately. :)

Orginally I was going to plan some games, but the kiddos seemed to have fun just playing in the backyard.
Last, I'll leave you with a few pics of our family celebration, we had on his actual birthday last week.
