The night before the party some good friends got wrangled into helping blow up balloons, make party favors and stuff pinatas.
Someone was so excited about his impending party; he passed out at 6:30.
Carnival fare included grapes on fancy sticks (Target):
Corn dogs and veggies with ranch:
There were lots of things to do like toss the ring on the clown with the odd nipple-like protrusions:
the strong-man hammer:
get tickets at the ticket stand:
tic tac toe toss:
knock down the weirdos:
face painting, tattoos and an art wall:
Doodle's favorite helpers were on hand:
and I got to work with fondant for the first time!
Big brother helped with the little ones.
He was so excited to turn 4!
and so was his brother:
and then somehow, everyone ended up shirtless:
Guests left with their party favors:
One last snuggle with his bestie:
He ogled over his pressies:
And finally, after everyone left, I was able to convince him to do a little face painting:
Birthday celebration part deux is next....stay tuned.
