The weather was not great on the day of the party. It was freezing and rainy for the better half of the morning and it looked like we were going to have the party inside. Luckily, it stopped raining and warmed up by the afternoon, so the party was outside!
Here are some pictures from the day:
It was so windy that I couldn't get the candle to stay lit! Dylan ended up blowing out an unlit candle, but didn't know the difference. Yay, Dylan!
There were a few games: 1. Snake toss ("There's a snake in my boot"- get it?) 2. Pin the tail on the donkey
Yes, we did another bounce house. Ben is still shaking his head. The bounce house almost didn't happen, as the company had lost our order. (btw, the exact same thing happened last year with a different company!)I called them when they were 45 minutes late (still an hour before the party) and learned they had no record of my reservation, despite me having an invoice. They ended up coming at 3:45 with a dragon bounce house. It wasn't what I ordered, but I was so irritated at the company that I would have taken a princess bouncer if they would just get it to my house, dangit! So call Jumptown for your bounce house. Or don't.
Everything was great in the bounce house... until Dylan pulled out the power cord while there were still children inside! A few kids suffered short-term emotional trauma as a result.
Dylan and his best pal P. When they first saw each other they ran screaming to each other. It was adorable. Dylan opened his gift right away and then was ready to play!
After consuming more sugar in two hours than he had consumed all week, Dylan's party was over. It was so much fun and I can't wait until next year's party!
Thanks again to everyone who came to Dylan's party!
