Everett's Birthday


banner i made for his bday! (forgot to take a picture of the real thing on our fence.. along with all the balloon birds... dang)
Since on this special weekend both Nana & Papa AND Grammies and Grampies were going to be here, and it was close to Everett's REAL birthday, I decided to throw a 'legit' birthday party. Instead of just doing our own little thing, which we did with Reese this year (she chose not to have a party... we aren't horrible parents....)

SOOOoo... this year I decided to go with an Angry Birds Theme. He loves to play this game (He often steals our iPods/iPad to play it until it runs out). I grabbed some inspiration from pinterest and went at it. I had a few ideas on what we should do, serve, play, and I'm glad we got to do most of them.  We had yummy carne asada burritos/tacos and some great punch!!!

I F YOU WANT TO PLAY ONLINE ON THE COMPUTER.. CLICK HERE ANGRY BIRDS I found this while I was searching for my in-laws to play it at home on their PCs.

Anyway, here are the pictures. (They are all way out of order, I have no idea why, and it's such a pain in the butt to re-arrange them now... so.. enjoy) We had a great time putting this on for Everett, and I hope all that came enjoyed it as well!
Not really bug juice.. but cucumber water... (for the green pigs), If i could remove the sharpie, it would have read, PIG JUICE
Yummy Punch. I'll most definitely save THIS recipe! BUT you do need a ladle, not a spigot! (My TIP: omit the water.. not needed with all the ice)

Angry Birds cake pops!

So stoked about his super-soaker... thanks auntie Kari!
