Happy Birthday Landon

Today was Landon's birthday and he turned 6 years old. He is a lucky boy because he got 2 birthday parties. We celebrated with family last Saturday and today when he got home from school he had a party with his friends. So first I will tell you about his party last Saturday. For the theme of his party he wanted a detective party. So I made a file folder shaped invitation that said confidential on the front. On the inside it said "Landon has selected you to be part on an elite 6th birthday spy training camp team. Your mission should you choose to accept it, isto rendezvous at the given coordinates and time and be prepared for fun!!! (RYSB) Report Your Status By. Then it had the date and all the other info. Here is a picture of the inside and outside.The first thing the kids did when they got there was a Scavenger Hunt that was made by Jamie and copied by Jake. Thanks Jamie and Jake for all your help with that. Jamie took pictures of different things in my dad's backyard and the kids had to find them. This is what it looked like. For dinner we roasted hot dogs, and had baked beans, potato salad, and chips. It was so good. Then Landon opened his presents. We told people that he needed some boy toys. And they delivered. He also got clothes and a Brag Board from Jamie that he can hang his school work on.

After presents we had a pinata for the kids instead of goody bags and ate cake.

Here are a few other pictures from the party last Saturday. Enjoy!!
Today's party was a little bit more low key. I told Landon he could invite 6 of his friends since he would be 6 years old. We met at the playground of the townhouses we live in. We started out by playing a couple of games. First we played Duck, Duck, Goose.
Then we played Red Light Green Light
Then Simon Says. I didn't get any pictures of that game. Then he opened his presents. Once again he got some good toys. Then we had ice cream cones. One boy Xander got stung by a bee so I asked my friend Stephanie if she knew what to do and she told me to mix baking soda and water into a paste and to put it on him. So we did and I think that made him feel a littel better.
Happy Birthday Landon. We Love You!!!!

You Smiley's are WAY too creative with birthday parties. I already told Jaim that she's planning my 30th. I guess you're gonna have to help her now.
Love the detective theme!
