Birthday Party in a Bag - an 11-year-old Celebration~

What happens when you move the week before your oldest son turns 11?  Well, you have to get a bit creative that's all.  Luckily, our wonderful next door neighbors (from our previous house) volunteered to let us have his party at their house - since we didn't want to make his friends drive the 35 minutes to our new house. (Not to mention the fact the new place wasn't exactly ready for us to host a party.) 


Luckily, Boy 1 is easy to please, so his party consisted of pizza, games, cake, more games, smores and more games.   To transport his "party" to its location, we packed it all up in this big gardening bag from IKEA.   Soda, smores fixin's, paper plates, cups, napkins, glo sticks, favors, and other party essentials all in one convenient bag.  It sure looks festive, no?


Love the fact that he is old enough now that he and his friends can entertain themselves at a party.  It's amazing to watch my kids grow and enter new phases, and I think this phase is a lot of fun.  Such fun to see how they interact!  I sure will miss this great group of friends Boy 1 had in our old neighborhood...here's to finding another group of great friends in our new neighborhood.


Happy Birthday to my 11-year-old!  Love you!!
