Fountain park

Yesterday was such a nice hot day so several of us from Wyatt's preschool decided to head down to the fountain park and let the kids play. The kids had alot of fun. Wyatt and the boys from school trying to climb up the big rock and watch the ferry come in. Ethan, Bubba, Wyatt and John.

Wyatt, Jon and Bubba.
Wyatt didn't realize that the volcano was gonna go off. He ran up to touch it and then ran off very quickly.

Finished product

This is Wyatt on the second day chipping away.Here is Wyatt and daddy putting the dinosaur together. We spread this out over 3 days just to give Wyatt and Derek a little something to do every night.What a discovery!!!Here is a video of Wyatt and daddy doing a little discovering. Wyatt had his Star Wars birthday card playing in the background, he said they need a theme song while they worked.

The Dinosaur finder.

We went to a birthday party Tuesday at Chuck E Cheese. We brought with us all of Wyatt's receipts we have been saving since his 4th birthday party there. We had 1590 points to spend and Wyatt picked out this Dinosaur Excavation Kit. So him and daddy put on their work goggles and started picking away.
Wyatt loves using the little brush that comes with it. The hammer has a pretty short handle so daddy has had to do most of the hammering.

They are having alot of fun and it may take a few days, but we are excited to find all the bones and put the dinosaur together.

Wyatt's carnival Party

The birthday Boy!

Everyone was a good sport wearing the clown nose.

We had a Wyatt's party at a Community Center a friend of mine works for. It is an awesome place, it has a kitchen and lots of room. We actaully do most of our parties here. Alot of my decorations I got from Oriental Trading Co.

I made these signs wiht cardboard and some paint.I think Wyatt was in shock when he walked in.
My mom made this awesome striped curtain to hook on the front door.The place look awesome. I had lots of help from some great friends. We used the big rolls of plastic table cloth to make tent like top from the ceiling.Not sure if you can see on the walls, but I ordered old circus posters form a website. And they were only $4 each. Awesome price. Not sure if you can see in the pics, but the centerpieces were metal buckets with pin wheels in them surronded by peanuts. They turned out super cute. Here is a link to a better picture of them.Our buddy Matt who lives down the road from the community Center brought his tractor down and gave all the kids a hay ride. It went over very well, they all loved it.We had lots of games set up for the kids to play. Some home made other bought at Party City. The signs were also from Party City.I got a 5x7 picture from each of Wyatt's past birthdays and had them on display. So sad and happy to see him growing so much. :)The presant table. We also had circus music playing in the back ground.My parents brought there grill out and Ezra was nice enough to cook up the burgers and dogs.
I taped red crepe paper to a white plastic table cloth for the food table. And everyone was so nice and all offered to bring a side dish to share. This helped alot on cutting cost.

We had a huge candy table. The ferris wheel I ordered of Hobby Lobby website and alot of the candy came from the dollar tree. The awesome popcorn cupcakes my friend Nette made. The red and white wrappers are the Oriental trading co. and she had the popcorn label made at staples.
I got the gift boxes from Oriental Trading Co. and the favors are from party City and the suckers where also from OTC. I filled littel ziplock bags at the end of the party and put the candy in the kids gift boxes. Here is all what Wyatt got. Are day was as big as this pile.

Here is a link to one of my posts with some of my inspirational ideas while I was plannign the party and some things that I did use. Like the napkins and plates and invite. Enjoy and have a look around.
