This year for his birthday I originally wanted to do a mustache bash, but TJ nixed it because it was much to "trendy" for his taste :) I decided to ask Dominik what he wanted (a novel idea in my opinion...definitely a risky business), and he opted for Superheros. He loves EVERYTHING superheros, capes, swords, play fighting, etc...Before I would agree I had to check pinterest and see if Superheros was doable...It most certainly was!!!
I started planning the party a few months in advance and would do a little each day. I knew I wanted a city scape backdrop for a photo booth, handmade monogrammed capes for each child, and a bounce house. When I started looking into bounce houses I found that it was the same price to rent a bounce house as it was to buy one...Happy Birthday to Dominik...you are now the proud owner of a bounce house :) Yeah...he is pretty spoiled!
The overall party was a HUGE success. We had so much fun. Grandma and grandpa were in town for the event and it went off without a hitch. Almost all of D's best little friends showed up, and they had an absolute blast.
When the party was over and we were cleaning up, Dominik asked me what I was doing. I replied that I was cleaning up and he got a terribly sad look on his face. He then exclaimed "NO, don't clean up my party! I want my party back." The next day he told all of his nursery leaders about his totally awesome superhero party...He definitely knows how to make his mama feel good!
