Caden's Birthday

First of all, I would like to let you know that I have 91 photos of this event.
So you will get a separate post with the pictures because it really is just too hard to upload them.
Plus, they always have the spaces between them.

We had Caden's birthday party on Friday.
Robert and I went to Star Trek the night before, and I was exhausted all day.
Naturally, when I got home I took a nap.

I snoozed my alarm too much and ended up waking up at 5 when I was supposed to be at the Mason house.

I ran to Toys 'R' Us and picked up some blocks and chalk stuff.

Then hurried back to their house just in time to find out Rob was home from Draper, already done eating.

It was about six.

Obviously though, I wouldn't eat the hot dogs they had for dinner... haha who would have thought!

After we were all settled, Jessica, Josh, Caden, Kyler, Janet, Tamara, Rob, Scott and I walked to Bonneville Elementary for Bronco Days.

We played lots of games.

My favorite was the one where you dig through a pool of shredded paper and find prizes

What's better than that?
There was even a cloud of paper hovering the room.

Emily stopped in for a little while and it was nice to see her, but had to go because she's doing school full time and work full time.
Crazy woman!
I could never do that!

We then played more games and adapted Rob's pocket as the prize pocket because there were too many to hold.

Then we headed back to the Mason's to eat cake and open presents.

Scott and Emily got him a puzzle that was a picture of him and it was soooooooooo cute.

Robert & I gave him 200 blocks (sorry for the mess), 3D chalk, and a rainbow rake for chalk.
Very messy, I know.

Jessica and Josh had a super soaker, a puzzle, Lincoln logs, Cars legos and I think something else but I can't remember.

We also had cake and it was delicious.
I'm usually not a fan of cake but how could you not eat a Lightning McQueen cake?!

My mouth turned wonderful colors from the black tire though :(

Then we played for a little and the kids went to bed

Jessica puts on a great party, and maybe I'll have to convince her to host mine :)
