A Lego Themed 5th Birthday

Ben is definitely my child. He began thinking about the theme for his 5th birthday months in advance. We went through a long list of contenders… Ninja Turtles, Regular Ninja’s, Scooby Doo, Superheros, Avengers, the list goes. But as the months drew closer, it become clear that Legos would be the official theme. In the past 6 months I’ve stepped on hundreds of them in the middle of the night and J’s wanted to simultaneously cry and cuss while trying to put together a car with 1,000 tiny pieces.
This was the first year the party wasn’t at our house and the first year that he’s invited people other than family. The party was at a gymnastics place where kids got to climb, tumble, roll, and run around like crazy for an hour. After playing we had pizza, cake, and Ben opened presents. Everyone had a blast, especially the birthday boy.

Jack got to hang out on the mat for a few seconds before all the big kids got there. All of that sitting must have worn him out because he slept through a good chunk of the party after that.

Both the kids and adults loved this huge foam pit.
J tested out the rock wall.
Lots of people tried to get to the top of the rope and ring the coveted bell. 
Each year we have a local bakery (the same one that made our wedding cake) make Ben’s cake and they didn’t disappoint. 
A little excited and a touch shy as everyone sang happy birthday.
Another successful party!
