We had a little surprise party for Josiah last week . . . mostly making up for the fact that we’re bad parents. Let me back up. He actually turned 7 back in April, but life was crazy. Really crazy. We were in the process of buying the house and didn’t really have a home base to start from. We had a little family party, but he never got to celebrate with his friends. So a surprise party was in order. He was definitely surprised so it was super fun! We didn’t tell Logan until a few hours before (after my Mom had picked up Josiah for a special afternoon) and he was such a great helper getting things pulled together.
We thought a movie night in the backyard would be super fun. We had a little BBQ first then sent the Dads and kids up the the park to run around and get their energy out then back down for the movie. Gotta have a tray of movie candy to watch a movie right?
It’s amazing how a plate full of cupcakes and cookies will attract kids like bees to a hot dog.
I found a tutorial on how to make the movie sign here . . . it didn’t take forever, but wasn’t the quickest project ever. But it was worth it – loved how it turned out!
Zac made four different kids of popcorn too – they were so yummy!
Josiah was surprised, the food was eaten and the kids had a great time so we’ll call it a success!
