Henry's 5th Birthday Party

Over the last week, we celebrated our Henry turning 5! His requests for his birthday party included a Mickey Mouse cake and a bounce house, and we were at least able to deliver those. The weather, however, had different ideas.

Henry's birthday party is usually a pretty big one - mostly because it's in summer, when we can make use of our huge backyard, and lots of family is in town, so we like to get everyone together when we can. It was chaotic, of course, but I think Henry really enjoyed every minute of it.

I spent a lot of time wrestling with his cake, ugh! I was trying to be frugal and make it myself, and I guess it turned out okay...but not without a huge headache!

The bounce house was delivered early in the morning, so Henry had plenty of time to play on it, at least! We went with a bigger on this year that had a slide and a basketball hoop and everyone was pretty crazy about it! The boys were still in their pj's when it arrived and that didn't stop them from getting right in....

We had a pretty good picnic spread going!

The kids spent the first maybe 45 minutes to an hour playing with the bounce house, and it was a good thing, too. As we were rushing to eat, the adults were watching the radar and knew that rain was on its say - and fast. We quickly moved the food and tables into the garage, and just in time for it to downpour. It was probably the hardest rain we had all summer!

My little house and garage were awfully crowded once the rain hit, but it made for perfect timing to have cake and presents since everyone was already together. As you can see, Henry was not thrilled about being the center of attention....

That didn't change on his actual birthday a handful of days later, either. Despite the fact that it was just a small handful of us with a cookie cake, he still was not a fan of having the birthday song directed at him.

Silly H :)

Despite the rain, he had a great birthday, and he loves all of his new toys so much! Thank you all for coming and braving the rain!
