was a hit… although the birthday boys didn’t even make it through the whole thing. Both zonked out in their cribs at Nana’s even before present opening time.
Here are some highlights:
Of course, the green bus was there. My kids didn’t even play in it after this photo was taken. Old hat, I guess. Oh well, Ethan made it all worthwhile.
Maow, the Queen of Scrapbooking, made the cutest accordion file keepsake books for both boys.
I think my pigeon balloons were my favorite part.
Lily and I made recycled centerpieces, coloring page placemats and party BEAKS for everyone to wear.
I wonder how long these two cuties will let us get away with the ol’ joint birthday trick.
Of course, we had The Pigeon’s favorite food… hot dogs.
… and some beak kisses.
Big Pigeon, as he was named, found a loving home with Lukie B. (much to the obvious delight of his parents).
Of course, Beankins had to show off his trademarked move.
I may or may not have been the only adult wearing a beak.
A pigeon egg hunt and an impromptu game of ‘duck, duck pigeon’ kept the older kids entertained.
Eli was, and continues to be, terrified of our bounce house. So much for hours of backyard fun this summer.
Check Suzanne’s blog for more photos of the other bday boy and more that ‘my photographer’ might have missed.
I used photoshop to make this invitation:
and create this little keepsake book to match for the boys…. and use as a guestbook at the party. Of course, it arrived one day AFTER the party. Neat.
