Super hero party!

The party was SO much fun! There was a lot of running.  A lot of cape wearing {although I didn't get many pictures of that!}. Cupcake and quesadilla eating.  Present opening and super hero being. What more could you ask for!? Our decorations were minimal.  I made some "call outs" and "word stars" in Word {if you want me, them let me know!}.  I hung some streamers and some balloons for running through.

I made cheese quesadillas for lunch with toppings on the side -- chicken, black beans, sour cream, salsa.  We had some veggies with ranch.  And of course, cupcakes!  B wanted sprinkle cupcakes, but I couldn't find the "funfetti" kind at the store -- so we made our own with vanilla cake and sprinkles.  Benjamin really did most of the work, I just guided!  And to make our cupcakes more super-hero-ish, we used the Marvel Spider Man cupcake kit. Easy peasy!

I had a few "games" planned, but the kiddos entertained themselves by running in circles and playing with B's toys.  I love three year old birthday parties! Benjamin had so much fun and loved having super heros to play with!  Although, he didn't love wearing his cape the entire time -- such is a 3 year old I guess :)

I loved putting this party together.  It was easy, fairly inexpensive and thoroughly enjoyed! We aren't finished celebrating yet, though.  Benjamin's actual birthday is  Wednesday and we are going to have some fun!

Then -- on to the next party {for Andrew}!
