Wow, we had a great birthday party for my son this weekend!! His birthday is the day after Christmas and we postpone his big party until January. And the weather always seems to cooperate, it was in the high 70's with a big blue sky on Sunday! And I have lots of photos to share...so be forewarned! Hee hee!!
First...the goodies. This is his alligator cake he has been wanting for over a year now!! I found the idea in my Hello Cupcake recipe book.
And since we were having a 'bird show' at his party, I made owl and vulture cookies for the kids goodie bags. Lots of piping with royal icing, I had forgotten how fun that was!!
We had a big jumper slide in the backyard and the kids still loved it. And Kevin made homeade root beer with Dad and also kegged it. Way cool to be a 8 year old and pour your own pint!
And here are the stars of the show!! First...a beautiful Peregrine Falcon. Kevin even got to hold this guy!
And then Periwinkle the owl. This guy was the COOLEST EVER!!! His eyes are mesmerizing and the way he swivels his head is so cool! Everybody had a chance to pet this bird.
And then...there was one more crate. A wooden box that was literally shaking off the ground. The kids were dying to find out what was in it...and it was Dexter the Vulture!!!
This bird was pretty cool, too!! He was a fiesty one, he kept trying to eat Joe's watch and pulled off his sunglasses and pretty much flapped his wings alot and made a big fuss. Pretty cool to watch! I think even the adults had a great time with the birds. And I honestly think this bird is probably bigger than my daughter.
Thanks for making it through all these photos. They were just too good not to share. The weather was amazing and all the kids were so well behaved and polite, it was just a great party. I sure hope you enjoyed your weekend!! I have lots of crafty stuff planned this week, so don't forget to come back!
Thanks for stopping by!!
