Hayden's 8th Birthday Party

Hayden had a fabulous Paul Frank monkey (Julius) party last month. We had to delay his party until after our cruise so we picked 2/20. Unfortunately, he was coming out of some random illness that was spanning the neighborhood so he wasn't his usual cheerful self. He still had a good time though. :)

I dropped his big birthday cake 2.5 hours before the party so Clayton hurried to Hay's to get some cupcakes. They were not as cool but he didn't seem to mind.

The kids had a banana hunt. Each came with a letter on it to spell out a message. They had to unscramble them to figure it out. This turned out to be a really cute activity. The message read, "Happy Birthday Hayden Gray Logan".

We also had the kids do a banana peeling contest. Each kid was given a banana and they had to peel and eat it using only 1 hand. Paige was the fastest by far. She somehow popped hers open using her hand and leg together. I have no clue how she actually did it though, lol.

I had a candy kabob station set up in the dining room but it was only a hit with the girls. The boys were all too interested in playing the Kinect and jumping on the trampoline. Speaking of the trampoline, there was a period of time when all the kids went outside and the adults were all inside. It was crazy how quiet it was, lol. We enjoyed our peaceful moment and chatted away.

Daniel made Hayden this sweet card. Don't you love the cute Julius drawing?

Opening gifts (he really wanted those Julius jammies so we happily obliged)
