Sheridan's Birthday Bash
This post is long overdue...
Sheridan had 28 friends - TWENTY-EIGHT toddlers and infants - take over our backyard. It was SO much fun - I set up 9 different stations around the backyard so the kids would have lots of opportunities to explore and have fun. We had everything from moon sand to painting, water play to ball pits, handprint souvenirs to oobleck (which, by the way, was more of a hit with the parents than the kids!). The invitations told everyone to "dress to get messy" - and we meant it!
I'm not going to write much, just let the pictures (and there's LOTS of 'em!) tell the story :)
I loooooooove this cake!
Simple, yummy food :)
Party favors :)
We even had an infant play area for the babies!
Sheridan greeted everyone and walked them back to the party
Painting was probably the favorite activity among the kids!
The sand table was a good place for the little ones to congregate :)
Each child had a canvas square they could decorate however they wanted to take home as a souvenir
Moon sand - you can mold it, it never dries out, and always returns to "sand" - a weird consistency and great for sensory play!
Homemade, organic, oatmeal play-dough
We also had music at the party... as you can see, Sheridan was eager for the music to start!
I love how these three are playing together
This is probably my favorite picture... here's Sheridan standing in the middle of everyone, shaking his booty to his favorite song. It's like he's on Solid Gold and he's dancing for a prize!

Of course, his Becca was there
All in all, it was a fantastic party. It was so much fun. I'm sad Gary had to miss it, but I'm glad he insisted that we go ahead with the party.
The children love it. Some partied until they literally passed out...
Others didn't want to leave, even after 3 hours of hard play they were still going at it...
I'm just glad everyone had so much fun and Sheridan got to celebrate his birthday with so many friends!
Happy second birthday, Buddy!
