6 Year Old Superhero Party

Sometimes I wish I wasn't a procrastinator.  Especially when it comes to planning parties. My life would be a whole lot easier if I could do things ahead of time but I clearly haven't gotten that down yet.  Hudson and I had been talking about what kind of party he wanted for quite awhile and pinning ideas for months. Now that he is in school he was so excited to invite his classmates.  His actually birthday is April 27th but with scheduling conflicts we moved it to May 10th.  Whew, it gave me 2 more weeks to plan. Well, life got busy and I finally started shopping and making decorations the week of the party.  Sounds like me.

We recently planted seed in our backyard so we decided we couldn't have a bounce house on our new seed.  So we ended up having it at the park behind our house.  It was so perfect to have all that room to ourselves.  I just love "our park".

We rented a bounce house and it was going to be just that.  But then the weather report said it was going to be 94 degrees we just had to upgrade to the waterslide bounce house so the kids wouldn't be too hot. As the party got closer the weather said 84 degrees and then the day before it said 79.  Guess who doesn't care what temperature it is outside to play in water?  All of the kids.  Their little lips were chattering but they didn't care.  They had a blast.  We had such a wonderful time celebrating our little 6 year old.  It breaks my heart a little that my baby is 6 but we are having so much fun with the boys at this age.  Thank you to our friends and family who came to celebrate with us.  We are very blessed to have so many people who love Hudson.

This was the perfect sized bounce house for all the kiddos.

What's a superhero party without your aunts and uncles showing up in their superhero garb? 

This was a fun idea in theory until the wind blew.  


Spider webs of course.  

Look at this cutie!

I ran out of time to do anything more than this for the cupcakes.  Procrastination problems.

 Their lips were so blue.  

But that didn't stop them from making funny faces. 

Make your own mask station.

Cute masks boys!

My favorite part of the whole party.  Instead of goodie bags I made all of the kids capes with their initial on the back

 This is the cutest superhero I've ever seen. 

Even my niece got a little one.  

Thank you to all our superhero friends!!

We were exhausted but it was so worth it!
