Benjamin's Space Birthday

It was a beautiful day...and the perfect day to celebrate Benjamin's 4th birthday!

Space...was the theme for the we had a astronaut...and a lot of rockets...a rocket for Benjamin and his buddies to have their picture made in...and rockets that his daddy shot off! 

Benjamin...what a great astronaut...
He flew his rocket...the DBS IV!
William was about to doze off in the swing...
We had a barbeque...with lots of salads...and fruit rockets! 
Donnnie was getting the first rocket ready to blast off...

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1...BLAST OFF!

Here it came crashing back down to earth...
Everyone found a good spot to sit and watch the rockets...

Now it was time for the Starbucks Rocket!  Donnie built it completely out of Starbucks materials...

Benjamin and some of his buddies were anticipating the loud noise from the launching of the rockets..

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1- BLAST OFF!

Grandma decided to get in the rocket...Grandma...aka...Susan!
Grandma Susan also wanted to have the experience of being an astronaut!
If Grandma can go up in a rocket, well, Mimi can too!
This Mimi wanted to be an astronaut, too..
Benjamin got back in the rocket...and did not want his Grandma to take a picture of him! (I love this picture!)
Even though he didn't want Grandma taking his photo, he decided to take photos of his friends!
There was definitely some fun on the trampoline!

Time for another rocket!

The birthday boy and his Mimi :)

It was fun to watch everyone having such a good time!

When it was time for cupcakes...and to sing 'Happy Birthday' was a bit windy for the candles.  They finally were lit, Benjamin blew out all 4 of them...and we sang!

 After the party...and after swimming lessons...Benjamin was ready to open his gifts.

 "Pantilones!" Benjamin exclaimed.

 Benjamin loved all his gifts...but especially his cars!

 "Mimi, would you take a picture of my cars?"
It was definitely a great party...good weather...good food... good friends... a great little man's 4th birthday party!

Happy Birthday!
