Turtle Power: Party Style!

The fourth birthday has always been the one where my kids get to start inviting friends....before that it is just family! So, this is a big year for Graham. He decided early on that he wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party.   We decided to get a bounce house and celebrate at our house.  He invited the boys from his class, and we were ready to party!
Graham must be living right because it rained and stormed the entire week before his party, but Saturday morning we woke up to a beautiful day!  It was perfect, and I was relieved!!!
The boys bounced

and played bean bag toss and played in the fort until they were all hot and sweaty!
Graham's cheeks were so red throughout the whole party!
We took a bouncing break to open presents...
and to have cake!

It was a fun and easy party.  We sent the guests away with small party favors,

and then it was time for the family party!  The whole family, including Aunt Morgan,  came over to celebrate with Graham. 
The bounce house hung around for a few more hours, so we continued the celebration with some pizza and more partying!
 He was so funny opening his presents; he said "why are y'all guys just staring at me?"
He got a ton of great gifts, including a new, bigger bike.  We spent some time today working on riding it.  He has had a balance bike, so we are hoping he can get this one down without training wheels.  We'll see.
Graham had such a great party day.  He loved every minute of it, and I loved watching it.  At church this morning, he looked up to Casey and said "I loved my birthday party."  Makes it all worth it!
