Colin turned 8 years old yesterday! The only thing that could have made his birthday party any cooler was if he were turning 11 on 11-11-11, but he was happy with 8! He had 9 friends over, which with our 3, made an even dozen crazy small boys. We had silly string and whipped cream fights, multi-sport combat in the backyard with games of badminton, football, soccer and baseball going on simultaneously, 11 completely non-nutritious snacks and a huge 11 cake with LOTS of frosting! The boys were actually all great, but unbelievably LOUD!!
|One of the many sporting events going on at once.|
|I guess I should get used to a houseful of boys!|
|At one point or another during the party, I saw Harry Potter, Batman and a cowboy make an appearance.|
|Only eight candles on the eleven cake|
|Lots of 11-11-11 wishing going on.|
|Even the little guy got in on it!|
|Then the whipped cream came out!|
|I am so glad I thought to buy disposable rain ponchos.|
|Messy and delicious!|
|Getting creamed in not a bad thing in this game.|
Some chose to eat more than battle.
