When I was thinking about how to decorate his cake, I couldn't think of many things he likes more than candy, so I decided to do a candy themed cake. It. Was. FUN!!
The toothache inducing completed cake =)
From the top
I loved how well some of the candies stacked up on a wooden skewer! =)
The bubble gum border
Since we surprised him with a huge bouncy house (which needed to go in the front yard), we decided to have his party out front, in the car port (which was freshly power washed by Philip so it was nice and clean!)
I had fun making this giant poster to cover the window
Funny new photo props
A highlight of the party was having Mom, Jeff and Isaac in town for it!
Isaac putting on his best pirate face =)
The bouncy house
Good times were had by all inside!

The whole set up (with the best parts - the popcorn machine and sno cone maker on the right - thanks Uncle Isaac!)
All the food

Uncle Isaac hard at work
What a hit!
What a pro!
This was at least Keenan's second sno cone
Nora Jane with blue lips
I love this one, where even the baby in Susan's belly gets a say! =)
Grandpa Jeff lookin' cool
Keenan chose to play pin the tail on the donkey
It was pretty hilarious
Even Caleb took a turn! =)
For another throwback game, he chose "Hot Potato"! (Where you wrap up a gift in multiple layers of paper, the kids sit in a circle, you play music and when the music stops, whoever is holding the gift, unwraps one layer. The person who removes the last layer, gets the prize).
Us and our handsome eldest!
We love you so much, Keenan!
Candle time with all his crazy friends =)
