Since the day after his second birthday party, Collin has known he wanted a " 'struction site " party next. All year he never changed his mind. He's obsessed with construction equipment, so we knew a construction site party would be perfect.
We had a really great time decorating for the party, primarily with a $7 roll of caution tape. We put it everywhere - around chairs and stools, on cabinet doors, on the mailbox, and everywhere else we could think of. Daddy also parked a mini excavator in the front yard, which Collin thought was awesome!
I think it's fun to do a picture timeline of the past year.
We had a really fun spread of food, which I'm bummed to not have a picture of... sandwiches, chips, veggies, dirt cups, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and salami & cheese.
Collin invited three friends to the party - Abbie Rae, Eli, and Oreyna. They had a good time painting suncatchers together. Four kiddos was perfect - they fit at the table and were all able to play together without it getting too hectic.
Collin chose some fun toys for his friends to take home.
The most important choice of the party, for Collin, was the cake. We showed him some pictures of construction-themed cakes, and he chose the one with a backhoe digging into the cake.
It was a really fun time of mingling, chatting, and enjoying the company of our friends and family.
We had a blast celebrating Collin's birthday, and we're so grateful for all the wonderful people in Collin's life.
