Racing away to his 8th Birthday

Found an awesome place and idea to celebrate Sunshine’s 8th birthday. Inspired by Hot Wheels theme (click to visit my inspiring Pinboard), we added our own touches to a gathering friends and family.

The above set the theme, where birthday boy and friends will build their own scooters in teams and race against one another.

Oh can I show off the cool invites we made…? 😛

BBQ plans had to be put on hold with the wet weekend but thankfully the skies held until we were done… Yummy food spread-

Choosing the birthday cake was such tug of war… from a cool cake which got mummy more excited than the birthday boy, who remembered this train cake he had been wanting since he was 3(?) Finally we settled for homemade muffins (ya, go figure ;p)

While the bigger boys were playing engineers and drivers, lil ones had their bubble fun-

Presents galore, … but i think we are learning the lesson about looking beyond material gifts

So, that set the birthday mood for this year… next is (another) potluck picnic, so says the soon-to-be 14 year old ;D
