Birthday Party and Batman Cake
Yesterday was CooCoo's birthday party, and it was a blast! Here is the cake, which I made. I've been making the kids' cakes for the past few years. I will always remember a cookie monster cake I had as a child that I thought my mom made. Well, when I had children of my own, I mentioned it to her. Ends up, she bought it! I was so disappointed that I decided to always make my children's cakes. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out, and the crowd loved it!
We rented a big Batman moonwalk, and we had the party at the playground in the neighborhood where we bought our lot. We grilled hot dogs and had a nice, simple party. The other change I've made to our parties in the past year is that they are environmentally responsible, but I think I'll make that a post for another day.
We asked all the kids to dress up in superhero costumes, and our two oldest boys wore batman pajamas. Coo was so happy that some kids from his school came. Especially the girls. Does that start already? I'm sad I have no pictures to post. I let other people take pictures, so I'll post them when I get them.
I think the party was a big success, and I still can't believe it was his fifth!
