Jack’s 10th Birthday Party

Hard to believe we will soon cross the threshold into double digits but yet here we are…

Jack celebrated his 10th birthday today.

This year he wanted a ‘mystery’ theme. He was thinking along the lines of a Scooby Doo themed party.

Well, don’t make it too easy for me Jack!

Still, we did our best to pull it off.

First with Scooby themed snacks and a Jelly Bean guessing game.DSC_0074 DSC_0075

While The Mystery Shop set up their show, the kids busied themselves by beating each other up with pool noodles. DSC_0076

As you can see many of the kids were in short sleeves. It is an unusually warm day today, in the 70s. The news reported that weather this warm in February has only happened 4 times since 1871.

It was good luck for us, since every time we have this many kids over, they open all the doors to the house and run up and down the back stairwell, basically exposing the outside world to our heating for the length of the party. This year we didn’t even have the heat on!

Then it was time for the show. The kids did mad libs type exercises, a choose your path type story, and some riddles.DSC_0090 DSC_0112 DSC_0088

By the time the show was over, the pizza had arrived. DSC_0115

We gave the kids enough time to get up to more mischief. And they did. At one point a bathroom sink was left on and overflowed. Then later one of the kids got locked in a closet (he was totally cool about it though!). I think I walked by a game where one kid laid on the floor, got covered in couch pillows then the other kids laid on top of that. I didn’t ask any questions….IMG_6044

Next it was cake time!DSC_0116

Adam did his usual grandiose cake from Deerfield Bakery. Yes, that house is edible.DSC_0123

Finally it was time to say goodbye. Before each guest left, we handed out invisible ink books instead of the usual goodie bag.DSC_0132

Now, time for presents…DSC_0127
