Gavin's 4th Birthday

My little man turned 4 on June 26th and his only request was a hunting camo birthday party.  Not exactly an easy request for a non-crafty mom, so I had to get my serious thinking hat on.  Here's what I came up with:

Pin the antlers on the deer:

Thanks to Marissa, she made the deer for me and it was a huge hit for the kids.  Gavin loves it and has played with it at home too.

 Laynie pinning the antlers on.

 Gavin's cute friends who came to the party.  They are all such fun kids and I think they all had fun!

 Hunter, hunter, DEER!  Our version of Duck, Duck, Goose!  The weather was not cooperating and I had to make some changes with games so luckily my sister Hillary was on her toes and thought of this one.  The boys loved it.

 The boys were each going to get a balloon and draw what they wanted to hunt on it, and then with squirt guns go hunting for them.  But thanks to the wind we had balloons tied in knots so the kids shot the balloons and eachother with the water.

 Gav got lots of fun presents.  His friends were all VERY helpful in opening them too.

 The day after Grandma and Grandpa Anderson came by and gave Gav a bat and baseballs for his birthday.  He has slept with the bat and takes it pretty much everywhere he goes.

Overall, I think the party was a hit.  Gav gave me a huge hug when he went to bed that night and thanked me for the party.  He told me he loved me and that next year he wanted a Batman and Spiderman birthday.  I guess its good he's giving me a whole year to start planning that one. 

Happy Birthday Gavino Bambino!  We love you!!!!!
