Mel's Birthday Party Nov 2011

Mel's Birthday party was on a Saturday morning at the park right by our house. We did some old school games with a hula hoop and, my favorite, the balloon game. You tie a balloon to a string and then tie the other end of the string around your ankle. Then the stomping begins and whomever is the last person with a balloon not popped, wins! The grassy area was pretty big so next time I will have to make the boundaries a little smaller. At the end, there were still a few kids with balloons intact and they were getting tired of running so I let everyone that was out, back in and that sped things up so we had a winner and could go to the next game. Melody wanted to play the mummy wrap game SO bad. The kids each got a turn to be the mummy and the other 2 in the group would wrap them up. Then, the mummy would bust out and we would clean up and rotate. I think that was the favorite game for most of the kids.

After that, it was time for the was a black cat (Mel's birthday is just a couple days after Halloween so Halloween seems to blend into some of her bday decor :). That cat was HARD to break. All the kids had a couple rounds at hitting it and it didn't break at all so Jason and Nick (they were kind and came and helped) each got a turn and finally it broke open. There was candy for all and then it was time for cupcakes and presents. Melody was spoiled and got lots a nice presents. We managed to squeeze all the fun in and finished right on time for parents to come and pick kids up for their next event...the fall festival! It was a fun day and I was glad that all the kids had so much fun playing games at the park and I am SO glad that Melody has such wonderful friends!
