This past weekend was Bubby's birthday party. I know I've discussed party prep, but I figured pictures and a narrative were warranted.
Bryan and I spent the night before the party cutting capes. Which were time consuming, but not difficult. In the grand scheme of things, party prep wasn't too complicated, it just took up more time than I had originally anticipated. And we made too many capes, so I could have saved us at least an hour of labor if I'd made fewer adult sized capes. I had enough for all the adults, but not everyone was into cape decorating (which is totally fine, because pretending to be a superhero isn't for everyone).
But the end product was pretty awesome if I do say so myself. Here we all are in our caped splendor:
I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted of people actually decorating capes, but people seemed to be having fun.
Once we had assembled all the Avenger figurines, it was time to get back to the party and defeat Red Skull! Some of my friends took better pictures, but I haven't gotten around to saving them onto my computer. Regardless, here's one of Bubs:
Then there was cake!
Griffin had a great time - and I think the rest of the kids did too. It was great. I'm so happy with how things turned out. :)
The next day was a trip up to the Boardwalk with my parents, my brother, his girlfriend, and her 5 year old son. Much fun was had by all. Here's a pic of Sissy & me.
So happy 3rd birthday Bubby!
