He's 6!

Jake's 6th MONSTER JAM Birthday Party 
with unlimited go karts and games was sure to be a SMASH...and it was!

Oh and no MONSTER JAM party is complete without paper trucker hats!!!  AWESOME!!  When I ordered those I thought they were REAL hats, they arrived and had to be put together and taped!  Lol!  I thought the kids would think they were silly but as you can see, they LOVED THEM!  Thought they were so cool and I think I heard a few of the boys say the hats were "SWEET!!!"  They had glow necklaces for going around the track at night too...pretty cool!

We had a great time and I think all of the kids had so much fun!  Jake said it was his best birthday yet, so guess we did a good job!  I actually made the cupcakes camouflage throughout, as Jake requested so that took a lot of time, but once I saw all those little boys bite into them and yell, "AWESOME" it was totally worth it :)  
We had pizza too, but do you know how difficult it is to get 25, 5 and 6 year old boys to STOP riding go karts and playing games to eat pizza!  I think most of the boys took a slice to go!!  

The best part of the evening was watching the Dad's have as much fun as the boys!  TOO CUTE!  The dad's were very competitive out on the race track and indoors for the arcade games...it was hilarious!  I can honestly say all of the Dad's had a blast which usually doesn't happen at kids birthday parties, right?  

It's definitely one we'll never forget and I'm still having a hard time dealing with the fact that my baby boy is SIX YEARS OLD!  I know, I know...get over it, right?  Well, easier said than done.  I feel like it all happened so quickly and he's my big boy now....even Justin's not my baby boy!  Guess Molly the pup is my new baby GIRL :)
