Aidan had been waiting for this day for weeks.  He would tell everyone and anyone that would listen that he was having a "Buzz Lightyear" birthday party.  The big day finally came.  He had a  look of pure joy on his face when the fun jump man arrived to blow up his fun jump!  It was in the shape of a tee-pee.  Too cool!  And he was excited to see me bring home all of the balloons and the ice cream cake for his party.  Now the hard part...waiting until 3pm for his friends to arrive.  He was an anxious little bugger but somehow he still managed to take a nice nap before hand.  At 3pm, his guests started to arrive.  He made sure that they all received a cowboy hat as soon as they walked in the door.  He was bubbling over with excitement and grinning from ear to ear.  Aidan's friends that came to celebrate his birthday were:  Emma, Joshua,  Ryan, Mack, Dominic, Tyler, Ben, Brody, Alex, and baby David.  The kids (and adults) played in the fun jump.  Aidan's friend, Ben, took a liking to Aidan's fire rescue jeep and spent most of the afternoon tooling around the yard.  Then it was time for ice cream cake!  Aidan chose the flavor himself.  He wanted a chocolate chip ice cream cake with chocolate cake from Baskin Robbins.  It was yummy!!  The cake was devoured, leaving lots of sticky hands and blue faces!  The kids played some more.  A lot of them found the  stash of toys up in the game room.  It was a free for all!!  The kids were having a lot of fun.  Then it was time to open presents.  Aidan gave each of his friends a goody sack filled with a "Barrel of Monkeys" game, a punching balloon, Buzz Lighyear party blower, Buzz Lighyear fruit snacks, and lollipops.  And they each got a sheriff's badge with their name on it.  Aidan received a lot of cool toys.  He is thankful to have such generous and thoughtful friends.  He went around and thanked everyone for the gifts.  He was just so sweet.  He didn't want the day to end.  He was having such a fantastic time.  He got upset when the man came to take the fun jump away.  He wanted us to keep it on our yard forever.  Aidan played with his toys until almost 10pm.  When he went to sleep, his new toys, Buzz and Woody, were privileged to sleep beside Aidan.  All that partying tired Aidan out.  He slept until 9am the next morning and then took a long afternoon nap as well.  He'll be talking about his birthday for a long time.  


Here are some of the highlights from his birthday party.  Enjoy!
