3 year old Under Construction

The little guy around our house had a big birthday recently. We celebrated CONSTRUCTION style and it was awesome. 


When they arrived the kids entered our HARD HAT AREA and got to decorate a construction hat.

They deposited their gifts 

 Then they had a few choices for activities. They could hang out in the construction zone where there was DEMOLITION IN PROGRESS.

or work on BLUEPRINTS (from Alex Architecture)

And one of the huge hits was HAMMER TIME. (I couldn't resist) The kids really loved that one.

After they played for a little while we moved on to BARRICADE BOWLING where they used a wrecking ball. (Those "wrecking" balls were the take home gift with a label that said "Thanks for coming! We had a ball.")

And they took a turn with the WRECKING BALL

They also got to have a turn to WATCH FOR FALLING ROCKS

which also doubled as our photo booth.  (Zack's face cracks me up every time I look at this picture!)

Just a few of our friends. (I'm going to send these pictures out with the thank you cards)

Then we blew out candles and ate some crazy food!

It was a great party and I think everyone had fun. 

 I know this little guy sure did!!

Happy Birthday big man. Sure love you! Can't believe you are three!!

Just have to know if you made this up Emily, or copied it out of a magazine? Either way, you executed it brilliantly. I'm sure Amy and Tiffany (the party girls) will be jealous! What fun!!! Miss you all. Liz

Oh my gosh. So cute. You out-do yourself for every birthday! Can't wait to see what you have in store for the rest of the birthdays this year!

Emily, I think you put more energy into this birthday party than I have into celebrating all three of my own children's entire lives of birthday parties. Awesome!

What a partY! You are such a fun mom! Happy Birthday Zack!

Wow. That looks so fun and so perfect for a 3-year-old party. You should plan parties professionally.
