Outer Space Birthday Party

If you remember back to our family Halloween costumes or just to Trenton’s answer in my last post about what he wants to be when he grows up, it should come of no surprise to you that he wanted to have an outer space theme birthday party.

He was definitely excited when he woke up yesterday morning and got to see the birthday cake creation I had made (more to come on this in another post).

I felt like Trenton was old enough to really help out with the big decisions for his party: theme, guest list, and the meal.  He only wanted to invite two families (his best friends if you read my last post).  And he wanted me to order pizza for dinner.  I hope he always makes it this easy for me!

We started out the party by making Mess Free Pour Paint Rockets.

I found the idea here.

Then we headed outside to launch them.

The slide was apparently a good launch pad.

The kids also played with the music fence and a stomp rocket that Trenton got for his birthday.

Is it a surprise that the dads had to recover rockets from the roof and a tree?

Our pizza was delivered just as we made our way inside.  After everyone finished dinner, it was time for the cake and presents.  Thankfully our trick candles didn’t set off the smoke alarm or set the cake on fire!

The kids all played for a while before it was time to call it a night.  The kids weren’t the only ones having fun though.  It seems that The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel Game is a hit with all ages!

Trenton had a really fun fourth birthday party.  Thanks to our friends who helped make it a memorable one!

Now on to planning for Charlotte’s birthday two months from now.  She’s already got a couple ideas about what she wants!
