Collin’s birthday festivities are officially done…& so am I. I’m exhausted.
My Mom & Step-Dad allowed us to hold Collin’s birthday party at their house. Large backyards are hard to come by in VegasLand & their yard is huge. They did so much more than I could have ever hoped for. Collin has some seriously cool grandparents. I mean it. An obstacle course jumpy house AND a cotton candy machine!?!? Thanks again to Nanny & Granddad, from the bottom of our hearts. We are truly so blessed to have parents like them.
As a kid, I remember getting goodie bags filled with candy & I always looked forward to it…Mom & Dad, not so much. I thought it would be fun to fill Collin’s goodie bags with small toys that would be friendly for small kids as well as older ones. Let me tell you, these were some kick a$$ goodie bags. I’m a grown woman & I wanted one of these goodie bags. I filled them with stickers, sunglasses, miniature squirt guns, Ring Pops, glow bracelets & my favorite, animal noses!
My Mom ordered a cotton candy machine for the party & it was the biggest hit! Plus, we had so much left over, we were able to hand out Ziploc bags filled with extra for the guests to take home.
Collin did so well throughout the afternoon. No meltdowns & he was all smiles…well, aside from the trauma of Mama shoving him in the bounce house to see how he would react. It couldn’t have been more perfect…we even saw a monarch butterfly when we pulled in the driveway that morning. Hello, Liam.
