It was pretty great. Neil drew up an awesome skyscape (is that a word? I’m not sure) and the kids all had a blast coloring on it and sticking superhero stickers everywhere.
All the kids got a superhero mask and cape. Super cute.
After playing for awhile we pulled out the fabric markers and the kids decorated their capes. They were pretty specific in their design. Except for Seth’s friend Josh, who said his was “abstract”.
Everyone was pretty pleased with themself.
And of course there was cake. I really loved the little bunting I made for the top of it. It was simple but gave the cake a little extra pop I think. Neil looked at me like I was weird when I showed it to him- what do you think?
Yep, it was a rainbow cake! Albeit a much dumbed down version of one, but Seth’s 5, not 30. The kids loved it and it tasted pretty yummy too. You seriously need to try making swiss meringue buttercream icing for your next cake. Not too hard and oooooh sooooo delicious.
There were presents.
And after a bit of playing with the new stuff, we headed outside to test out the superhero gear. Ciara was surprisingly into the role of super girl and was posing it up like she was born to grace the cover of a comic book.
Check out the little superheroes in action:
Yeah, Ben was seriously over it by this point, but it’s still a great picture.
Happy Birthday Seth! You changed our lives in the biggest way 5 years ago and we sure love you for it!
