Celebrating 4

This past weekend we asked our families and a few close friends to brave the heat and join us in celebrating Harrison's 4th birthday.  For the longest time we'd planned on a Star Wars party - but about 2 weeks ahead of time Mr. Indecisive decided that "Invengers" was the way to go! We quickly switched gears and threw together a simple superhero party perfect for our little dude.

The Omaha Cake Gallery never lets us down - "Mama, that cake is amazing!"

While the adults sat around, moaning and groaning about the heat (oh ok - it was mostly just me), the kiddos kept cool in the pool, water table and on a lubed up slip-and-slide! 

That grin gets me EVERY time. I can't believe he's 4!

After swimming, the kiddos also went on a little "treasure hunt" around the farm.  They followed numbered photo clues to different landmarks around our property and ultimately found special party treasures waiting for them in the back of Matt's trailer. It was so fun watching them scramble from point A to point B looking for their next clue!

On to clue #5...
and then #6!

Birthday treasure! Nothing makes a 4 year old happier than cheap slinkies, jelly beans, superhero tattoos and party snappers.

Treasure hunting makes a little boy hungry! Luckily we had cake and ice cream ready and waiting. 

All good things must come to an end. Thanks to everyone who came out and helped make this day so special! Harrison officially declared it the "best birthday party ever!"
