Big Bro's 4th birthday was at the beginning of February. This year he chose to have a Ninja Turtle Birthday party. Mommy made these adorable invitations. He chose to invite EVERYONE in his class!
We had just moved out of our house, so we planned to have the party at Dick Nichols Park. We rented out the pavilion and kept our fingers crossed that the weather was nice. The weather ended up being nice, but was really windy in the pavilion, so we decided to forgo all the cute decorations I planned to put up.
We had Ninja Turtle masks and homemade turtle shells for all the kids to wear.
And red, blue, purple and orange foods!
Big Bro chose to have Rice Krispie treats instead of cupcakes. We made them into Ninja Turtles.
This is the best picture I got of the pizza, but what Ninja Turtle party would be complete without pizza? As a compromise to my healthy food beliefs, I found some Naan at Costco and made homemade pizza. We warmed the pizza up on the grill at the park. It was a big hit!
The kids enjoyed playing on the playground and in the sand volleyball pit with trucks and sand toys.
The piece de resistance was the homemade Ninja Turtle pinata that Nicholas and Big Bro made together. It was VERY strong, so all the kids got 3-4 hits!
We took our time cleaning up and enjoyed some family time in the park.
Then we came home for Big Bro to open his gaggle of gifts! What a blessed boy!
We had Big Bro's birthday dinner at Phil's Icehouse and Amy's Ice Cream for dessert. Big Bro had a great day!
The day after Big Bro's birthday party, we enjoyed this Ninja Turtle watermelon didn't make it to Big Bro's birthday party.
