Superhero Campout

we had a birthday party for both the boys last weekend and since they wanted to "camp" and dress up a superhero campout was born.  here was the overall idea that included smores cupcakes, a lemonade bar [a big hit at this party], a boom box piñata, this scavenger hunt, and a neon meets nature vibe...



we have a backyard that's perfect for big parties, but the layout of our home, well not so much.  so i planned for the majority of everything to be outside, but it started pouring several hours before the party and continued through the first couple hours of it.  it was obviously disappointing, but we knew stressed out hosts can kill a party much quicker than bad weather can, so we set up what we could inside and made the most of it!

their current favorites "hulk smash" and captain america which are
perfectly fitting of their personalities right now.

and our recent additions to the family - ralph and tornado 2.0 fit right in

big thanks to my sister rachel who made these amazing smores cupcakes!
dark chocolate with actual toasted marshmallow on top - so so good!

we had this camper tent from christmas so it was a no brainer to use it.
so after the rain we brought it outside and set up their play kitchen and food
inside of it and cole requested arrow pillows at his party too after he watched
me make so many for the glamping event that was ironically the same day.


can you tell who has the sweet tooth?
thanks to my sister-in-law lisa for capturing this and these great shots below...


we taped the desert shower curtain to the side of our shed and it became
a perfect spot for pictures like this one of my brother doug with some of the cousins.


dean was kinda obsessed with the hulk shorts we cut out of his cousin's
leggings and he didn't want to take them off at the end of the night.

and the little ones also used it as a stage.

rain and all everyone had a great time, especially cole and dean!
