It's Not a Party Until...

To celebrate Davis's fifth birthday, we turned to an old friend: Pump It Up. In the thirteen birthday parties I have hosted for my children, I am pretty sure that seven of those have been at Pump It Up. I love this concept: the kids run, jump, slide, jump, race on the obstacle course, jump, have a snack, and go home and sleep for hours. Even better: It's Not At My House. 

Despite the fact that Pump It Up has absolutely NOTHING to do with pirates, Davis wanted pirate cookies for his birthday.  A good friend of mine has started a cookie business, and these were her *first* attempt at pirates.  They were so cute the adults had a hard time eating them, although they tasted as good as they looked.  The kids had no problem whatsoever eating them.

They jumped and played and had a wonderful time.

The next morning, the effects of three rounds with his friend Porter in the boxing ring were evident.  He is so proud of his black eye.  He thinks it makes him look tough.  Frankly, I consider it a win that nobody left with more serious injuries than this.  It's not a five-year-old boy's birthday party until someone loses an eye!
