Mud Run birthday party

Just a few days after FireCracker landed herself in the hospital my second son turned 5. He wasn’t able to have a birthday party with his friends, but my friends went all out to make sure he had a great day. Well fast forward 6 weeks and he finally had his birthday….thanks again to one of my sweet friends. He has a couple buddies very close in age to him. When my friend was planning a small party for her son she offered to make it a joint party for both of the boys. I, of course, took her up on the offer. My little guy ended up with a dream party for a 5 year old boy (or any age boy for that matter).

Inspired by the Warrior Dash, we created an obstacle course for the boys. It was awesome. I was jealous. We planned it for boys…no coordinating decorations, no handmade bunting…just dirt, mud and competition. The party favors were plastic insects the boys had to dig out of a pool of mud. I wouldn’t mind doing this for my birthday this year….oh wait I kind of am! The real Warrior Dash will be in town close to my bday….

My older son agreed that his brother got the best birthday ever. It was a great day. I have great friends!

On a different note….we were told it would be a couple of weeks before she could walk again.

Day 3 without the cast…she’s walking. It is slow and with a big limp, but she is walking!
