Myles Birthday

This year we did something fun and had a joint b-day party for Myles and his cousin Aiden. Aiden’s birthday is Nov. 19, and with it being so close to Thanksgiving and other factors, (SNOW) we’ve never been able to go to one of his parties. I’m glad it worked out this year for us to do it like this. In fact, Tiffany and I are contemplating just doing ONE giant birthday bash for all the kids once a year and having it over with. Ha ha ha!! Well… it’s a nice thought. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, it worked out for us to head to Colorado and have the party right on Myles birthday! How often does that happen? We woke up about 2am the morning of and saw fluffy white snowflakes falling, and sure enough in the morning was a beautiful blanket of snow. ๐Ÿ™‚ That was exciting and it took a lot of talking to convince the boys that we didn’t bring gloves/boots/scarves and such to go roll around in it. It was gone by noon so we were able to do some of the partying outside, like piรฑata. That is NOT an indoor activity, oh no. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tiffany’s MIL made an amazing cake that was Peter Pan themed. The party had a Pan/Pirate theme and it was fun, but this cake was awesome!! The boys spent some time just gazing at it when it arrived. Myles had his own personal piece with a treasure chest on it and actual edible treasure! It was cool!

Captain Hook came to visit the party and promptly scared Myles to death. The voice might sound a bit like Popeye, but it certainly didn’t LOOK like him. Ha ha!

It took a bit of convincing, but finally Myles warmed up to him a little. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cake was delicious too! As you can see. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (On a side note, I made those little “Pan” hats, but I can’t really take credit, Tiffany came up with the idea, I just followed her instructions.)

Piรฑata time!! Woo hoo!! Myles wasn’t quite sure what to do with it at first. This was a “built FORD tough” kind of piรฑata as well, and we were all surprised just how long it held up to the beatings of all the kids. ๐Ÿ™‚

He was very spoiled on his big day! Thanks to everyone who got him gifts!! He has had a blast playing with them all. Thanks Ina for finding the elusive Tonka Truck as well! He loves all the stuff he got.

Us and our birthday boy! He’s resigned himself to being “Free” instead of four for now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have a zillion more pictures of his party, and I’m going to post some in the upcoming days. I just can’t not post some of the “game faces” I caught at the piรฑata and such. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks again Tiff for making it such a wonderful party! Oh, and I have to get the recipe or whatever for the drink with fruit and berries in it that you made. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yum!! Thanks to my amazing MIL, Ina, for the awesome Navajo Tacos she made. I love those!! It was a great party, and the boys had such a good time, and so did we. Ella basically slept through the whole thing, but I think that was best. ๐Ÿ™‚
