Party Pics

Aidan has had some pretty fun parties to celebrate his birthday.

First - Cowboy themed with brisket and all the sides for lunch at our house.

Second - Elmo party at our house

Third - Backyardigans party at the big sand pit at the park

Fourth - Mickey Mouse party at Jungle Java

And for his 5th birthday party we had a carnival in our backyard. My little brother Kaleb (who's really not so little and is almost 16) had a carnival party when he was about 5 or 6. Mom is so creative!

We made rainbow colored cupcakes. Each cupcake has 6 colors in it.

Uncle Jake painting A's for Aidan on Meme's face while the kids watch.

The backyard ready for the party!

The proud birthday boy with the hats, birthday crown, goody bags, and popcorn bags.

We passed out tickets and an empty goody bag when the kids got there. Then it was off to the backyard for the games and prizes, face painting, and cotton candy machine! We had a ducky game, ring toss, Plinko board made by Daddy and Grandpa Buss, Bozo buckets, and a bean bag toss. Aidan was super excited to be able to have most of his family there. Meme, Uncle Jake, and Uncle Kaleb flew in from Illinois, Uncle Rob, Aunt Katy, and cousins Robby and Lily drove down from Grand Prairie, and then Grandma and Grandpa Buss, Grandad and Nana, and Uncle Zach came over too along with Mommy, Daddy, and Sissy of course and neighbors and friends. It was beautiful weather (God must have heard my prayers!) and just a beautiful day to celebrate Aidan's 5 wonderful years of life!

This is my first attempt at a picture collage, so I still have a lot to learn about that obviously! Click on each picture to see it bigger.

Happy 5th Birthday Aidan! xoxox
