Wren turned 5 on Saturday! The party was such a whirlwind, I barely got pictures.

Denny and Wren made the bean bag toss using one of Wren's drawings and the huge box our gas grill came in. The kids thought climbing into it was more fun than anything else. Here is Wren and his cousin peeking out. So, the bean bags I made hardly got played with at the party. That's OK though, the kids each picked one out to take home.

We also made pop-up monsters with paper cups, craft sticks, construction paper and googly eyes.

I made the Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake from Baking Bites and went with a fancy look rather than a monster cake.

Our little house was just about bursting at the seams, Wren had the best time of all. At school on Monday, he ran up to his friend and asked excitedly "Do I look like I'm 5?!"

So cute! I'm glad Wren had fun! I love the monster idea!

We had Matthew's party a couple weeks ago. The kids didn't want to play any of the games we planned, they just had fun being together. Dave and I thought it was total disaster but Matthew said it was the best party ever.
