We celebrated Hughes' birthday a little early this year due to Collins' impending arrival. It was a dinosaur themed party at The Charleston Museum and all the kids loved it! Hughes invited a few of his 5-year old buddies to come learn about dinosaurs. It was great and I was happy that it wasn't at my house so there was no set-up or clean-up for me!
The Birthday Boy holding up his age - 5! I can't believe he's 5 already!
Blurry picture but it's the best I have of the both of them. My camera was on the wrong setting.
Dinosaur cupcakes courtesy of BecBec - to bad the sun melted off most of the icing hence the green pool the cupcakes are sitting in. Oh well, no kid complained.

Wyatt & Conley in the puppet theatre.
Listening to Miss Ryn teach us about different types of dinosaurs. Hughes was interested, I promise!
On to the art activities - each kid got to make two fossils and then paint a triceratops bank.
Wyatt, Conley & Miller focusing on their banks.
Hughes, William & Banks hard at work.
This was part of the scavenger hunt through the museum. They all had picture lists to find certain items in the museum. I stayed behind but David said it was great.
Look at that glowing cupcake! He blew it out without a problem.
Hughes has already said he wants to do his party again. I think after so much fuss over Banks' party, Hughes was glad to have the spotlight. We had a Dino-Mite time!
