Vinnie's Party

We had Vinnie's birthday party at a place called Sky High. It is an indoor trampoline place that the kids absolutely love!

Imagine wall-to-wall trampolines. What isn't there to love? As a pediatrician I can tell you that I get a lot of business from this place (think ankle sprains galore). It is a win-win for everyone!

There is also a great foam pit to jump in to.

Vinnie was thrilled to have all of his friends there.
There was even a minimal amount of crying!

I made bug cupcakes. Compared to some of my other cupcake projects, like this one or this one, these were really easy! I really had fun with them.

The structure of the bug is chocolate that I squirt onto some parchment paper, then used different sized M&M's for the body. Fun!

Presents were opened at home, and he received lots of great stuff. Just a word of warning-- have you seen the commercials for Aqua Sand? Well, it is as messy as you think it might be. Avoid it at all costs.

What a great turn out for a party! My favorite cupcake? The centipede ones.

Aqua sand sounds a lot like Moon Sand. Do Dyson and Hoover invent those toys?

Michelle said...

Yes! The Aqua Sand is like the Moon Sand, but with the added excitement of water. Hopefully he looses interest in it as quickly as the Moon Sand!

We have the moon sand and that is enough for us. I hate that stuff!

Looks like Vinnie had a good birthday!
