and it quickly becomes real how not small they are now! Enough about that on to the fun that was Destruct O's 3rd birthday!
Oliver has been in a crazy superhero phase for awhile now, and since I'm a slightly over the top party person, we all got to be kids for a day! I cut out 20 some capes from fleece, and 40 wrist bands, and a random assortments of decals they could glue onto the cape of there choosing. Initially I thought I'd make them each a cape, but as the party got closer and my stress level increased a brilliant idea hit me...let them make there own capes! They got to have an activity, which meant we all got to have a cold drink for a minute, then they had something to do the entire time! I had planned on taking a gazillion pictures, I wanted to get the yard before it was consumed with small peeps but somehow that never happened. So once again I relied on my fantastic friend Tracy for all the pictures! Thank you Tracy for documenting the chaos!
I made this banner with all the kids names who were at the party over a superhero's emblem! It made the yard much more superhero-ish without a ton of decorations!
Another one of my amazingly talented friends made this beautiful cake for Ollie! She thought it looked like a hot mess, but Elena it was the best hot mess I've ever tasted! :)
At the end of the day I think we all had fun pretending to be Super for a day! I'll leave you with a look back at my not so baby, baby, Oliver Mateo through the years...
