Here are a few pictures from our big Dooley kids Birthday Bash last weekend. We had a great time with a Bounce house, cotton candy, popcorn, hotdogs, carnival games, face painting and ice cream sundaes for dessert.
Thank you to all our friends who helped us celebrate. We had a great time!
And of course, thank you so much to all the moms who helped run stations, watch kids and to my sister Dacia for painting faces. Her designs were incredible!!!
As the kids moved around the backyard from station to station playing carnival games they collected tickets. At the end of the evening they used the tickets to purchase prizes. Some of the prizes were stickers, rings, candy, bubbles, silly string and for 45 tickets they could get a beannie baby!
The big boys enjoyed being "in charge" of the bounce house. They made sure the little kids took off shoes and were safe. When the little kids got out the big boys got in. Heck, I even got in! That thing was awesome and so worth the $160 rental from Carnival Time rentals. It was a big hit and the star of the show!
Yummy, Yummy Cotton candy! If the bounce house was the big hit of the night the cotton candy machine was second place.
Dave started out the night running it and the popcorn machine. By the end of the night the kids were gathered around it like it was a campfire with their little paper sticks in the middle collecting the sugar as it spun up. Thank you aunt Addie for loaning it to us.
We had such a great time that I am tempted to do this every summer!
