Superhero Party

The Saturday after Jonathan's birthday, we invited his friends to come for a superhero party.  Everyone was encouraged to dress up as their favorite superhero.  We started off with our superhero training course on the driveway.  They had to slide down,

 crawl through a tunnel,

 hit a homerun (we repositioned Ironman so that Batgirl and our bat didn't get hammered),

 ride down the driveway and shoot a bad guy,

 leap over a tall building in a single bound,

 this was hilarious by the way,

 and then shoot a basket.

"Curses!  Foiled again!" said our villian as all our guests passed their training with flying colors.

 If you click on this picture, you can see Andrew crumpled by the post after being shot by Ironman.  Andrew really got into his role as the bad guy and the little ones LOVED it!  What a great biggest brother!

 We came inside and had lunch next.

 Wonder dogs, super sticks, crash bang chips and gotham city grapes were on the menu. 

 For favors, Jonathan gave his friends a pack of cookies, a mask, and a cape made by Gigi.

 Captain America!

 Then we ate cake!

 And opened presents.  It was so funny to watch Jonathan as he hollered out, "Awesome!  Cool man!" after each gift.
 The whole gang
 It started raining right after our superhero training and didn't stop the rest of the day.  Jonathan went out on the porch in his cape and waved to everyone as they drove off.

 We are thankful for sweet friends to celebrate our big boy with us!
