bat caves part 2

the bat cake, enchaladas and guacamole are what Obed chose to have at his party


everyone got glow sticks, glow rings, glow necklaces, a flashlight, a (homemade) batman cape that had elastic for around the neck and wrists (i thought elastic was safer than ribbon for the neck), a batman mask, and a tote for all their loot.


i think he had fun.....


signage


rulage


heres what our blacked out kitchen looked like in the light. believe it or not the kids played in here most of the night with their glowsticks and flashlights. its amazing how much fun kids can have with simply a flashlight and a dark room.


we caught this guy after cleaning up.....it was an awesome birthday

its all right there at the fair

i know ive been terrible this summer with posting. i cant help it! theres too much sunshine, we've been out almost all summer. no time for the computer.
when september hits, i think things will start to go back to normal. ive never really been a summer person until this year, i just dont want it to end!
started out with a coffee in my new glass from a place aaron and i ate at on our anniversary trip....he took me to silverwood....and a few other stops.

off to the fair!
