For his third birthday, Michael wanted to have a bug party. (Specifically, he wanted a bug cake with a bird swooping down to eat a grasshopper and he wanted to have hot dogs. I think we did a good job of giving him all that and more! :) We kept it pretty simple - we invited friends from church and playgroup to come for lunch and cake. For favors I picked up some bug houses from the dollar tree and each child got to fill their bug house with dirt and grass and dig for (fake) bugs in a little bug pit we made. We used face paint to give bug tattoos, played in the yard, ate lunch, had cake and ice cream, and opened presents. It was short and really sweet. Michael loved it and his friends had a good time too.
Special thanks to my Mom and Dad who took care of Sam, helped with the party, took lots of beautiful photos, and freed us up to give our attention to Michael and our guests. Thank you so much Mom and Dad! We love it that we can share these special times with you! xo
The rocket from his Daddy - one of his favorite gifts :)
I couldn't resist putting these two in a basket with the balloons.
Corny, but so cute!
