Mac’s 8th Birthday Bash!

My oldest son recently turned 8 years old. I still can’t believe it! I can still remember the day we brought him home from the hospital and that seems just like yesterday. I am so proud of how he has grown into a well rounded, intelligent, and respectful young man. He is a great son, an incredible big brother and a good friend.

He went back and forth on deciding the theme of his party but finally decided to go with an Angry Birds party. Once that decision was finalized Meg kicked into party planning mode and started thinking and creating things for the party. As usual, she went all out with the decorations, the food and the games. Also, we were really glad he went with a video game theme since we had reserved a video game truck to arrive in the middle of the party. This was a surprise to everyone at the party including Mac. Here are some pictures from the big event!

Meg hand made all of the signs and ballons

All of the food had a clever names to with them, for example there were Pigs in blankets, Bird feed, Pig logs and of course Bird Poop!  The kids really loved that.

The video game truck.  It was really cool!

Here are some of the kids playing.  There were four different flat screens that had several gaming systems hooked to them so there could be several different games going at once. 

The kids could play a real life Angry Birds game.  They shot mini water ballons out of a slingshot and tried to knock down all of the boxes.

Then there was always the pool to keep the kid busy!
It was another great party and I think all of the kids and the adults had a great time.  I still can't believe that Mac is 8!  It is true, they do grow up too fast!
