Hughes' 6th Birthday was celebrated this past weekend with a spend-the-night party at the creek house. We had five 5-6 year olds and two 4 year olds and the party went beautifully. No one got home sick, no one got in a fight, every one just had a great time.
We started the festivities with a little running around the property which quickly turned in to a fort building mission and started the tie dye process on our pirate shirts.
Banks thinks he's 6 and I treat him like he's 6 all the time! I have to remind myself that he's only 4.
Check out Banks' hair! I can't bring myself to give him a "big boy" haircut.

We finished off the night with hot dogs, running around outside, making a giant treasure map using sidewalk chalk, more running around, hide-and-go-seek, etc. The boys all laid down around 9 and at 10 I turned off Looney Tunes.
Sunday morning we were up bright and early at 7am. The boys were back outside running around in their pajamas. We checked on the tie dye shirts and then we were hungry.
The treasure map that David worked diligently on. Apparently mine was not good enough so David had to redo them. For the record, his are better than mine.

The party was a roaring success but I'm glad I don't have to do another birthday party for about a year! This is one party-pooped mama!
