6th Birthday Party

We had Michael's party yesterday at home.  This year we decided to invite family and let Michael choose which of his friends he wanted to invite.  He chose a few friends and a couple of his classmates.  It was actually really nice to have a smaller, low-key party.  He got quality time with the friends that he is close with and all the kids seemed to have a good time.

The party had an Avengers theme but Michael asked for a Spiderman cake.  This was the best of both worlds to him.  A friend of ours made him a custom t-shirt for the party, which he happily wore and modeled for me.

The kids played in the backyard and Todd set up the bounce house for them.  He also put up the Avengers pinata, which we did after lunch.  All of the kids had several chances to hit the pinata before it finally busted open.  They all filled their bags with candy, which they loved, especially Michael.
We sang Happy Birthday to Michael after that and everyone had cake or cupcakes.  Most of the guests left and then Michael opened his presents.  He got quite a few Lego sets that were DC Super Heroes.  I think a good time was had by all!
