Lots of dirt, tractors, and happy boys...

saturday was cade's birthday party. this was his first "friends" birthday party (versus family parties in past years). to say he was excited was an understatement... he carried this clock around all day. knowing that when the little hand was on the 2...it was time! the party was based around this cake. he has been in love with this cake for over a year. each time we went to the grocery store - he made a b-line to the bakery. and he would gaze at the picture of this cake...in the cake book. so...i knew we would have a construction themed party. however, it is 110 degrees here in good ol' phoenix. too hot to play outside. what is a mom to do?
put the construction site in her living room, of course! mr. c thought i was crazy when i suggested it. in fact, he told me i needed to keep thinking of ideas...because that one would not happen. silly man. not only did it happen...it was a hit! of course, he came around. not only did he like the end result...he designed the proper installation of the site. : ) we had dirt, rocks, homemade - black play dough, and lots of tractors and equipment.
hard hats were worn and cake was gobbled up. i would say...these little crew bosses had a bulldozer of a good time!
