Anyway, my "I will not give into the mainstream" attitude came into play when Jacob insisted on a TMNT birthday party. So, since I knew it would make him happy, I agreed, but planned a party without employing the cheesy "official" TMNT branded paper plates, cups, JUNK that's all of a sudden everywhere. I guess they're making a comeback?
My feelings aside, this boy was a happy boy to play with his friends at the park on a brisk Sunday afternoon, drink "Sewer Water" and munch on foods slathered with green food dye. And that's all that matters.
Here are a few photos from the big day, my Jacob's fourth birthday!!
^^Cakes with fabric masks, marshmallow sticks dipped in sprinkles, "cowabunga" pizza (bagel bites) under the tin foil.
^^Plain vanilla yogurt, some food dye + fruit
^^Sprite+Green Food Dye
^^Jacob's favorite thing to do at the park: jump into the sand!!
