...zac's jungle saFOURi...

zac's birthday turned out to be a lot of fun. we invited seven of his little friends to join us for the fun, and that was the perfect amount...they all got a long great and seemed to have a fun time...so that was good! but in all seriousness, i think i actually had more fun planning the whole thing!

here's what our little guests were greeted with when they entered. they had to check in and receive an official passport to field jungle as well as some jungle money...


you may wonder why our little store is called "island medic"...well i was going to have mylaria pills (some mike & ike's) and a pretend little typhoid shot...but i didn't get around to it...and i had already made the signs...so it might not have made sense, but oh well. at the store, they bought themselves a saFOURi hat, bengal binoculars, jungle juice, and monkey munchies...






grandma debbie was so thoughtful and ordered zac a cookie bouquet for his big day...he loved them so much & still hasn't been willing to share an entire cookie...the stinker! we do get bits and pieces here and there, but for whatever reason...he's being really posessive of them...funny kid!


glad to see that emerson decided to make a mess of herself at zac's birthday party...seeing as how she would have nothing to do with her own cake.





i attempted to turn the basement into a little jungle...and we sent the kids down to search for bugs. here's zac redeeming his bug for one of his favorite prizes...he loves these little things. they turn into animals when you soak them in water...pretty fun...


the kids each made one of these...i love oriental trading for things like this! they have such great deals there...i think i got 12 little kits for $4.95...what a steal!


we got zac a "scooter-rider"...where he came up with that name, i'm not sure...but emerson has been loving it just as much. needless to say, i've spent a good share of time breaking up tug-of-wars between the two of them the last couple of days. always so fun!


and now we're off to boise for thanksgiving! so...happy eating!! :)

I'm in love with the birthday cake! Never seen anything like it (except on that Ace of Cakes show on TV).
Happy Birthday, Zak!

The birthday cake has left me speechless. Dallin's 5th birthday is a week from Saturday- now I'm wondering what cake I should make for him!
Happy Thanksgiving

Maegan said...

Holy crap! You are so creative. I am sure Zac was very excited! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

RaeAnn said...

unfreaking believable. You must post how you did the cake...cause I know you made it from scratch! Of course, I would never attempt a creation like that, but I like to see how you do what you do!

You are insanely creative. How long till you have your own TV show? Think of me then, I could be a really great personal assistant.

AMAZING Lyndsie! I wish we lived closer and I would hire you for all of my birthday parties! It looks like such a fun party. Zac is adorable!

Once again you pulled off a great party. I'm sure all the boys loved it. I can't imagine how tired you must have been after decorating and then having lots of four year old boys running wild. Oh, and the cake--I don't even know what to say. Wow.
