A Third Birthday Dinosaur Adventure

Long ago.
Long long long long long ago...
Before there were people...
Before there were roads...
Before cats... or bats... or dogs... or ducks...
Before planes... or bikes... or cars... or trucks...
There were... Dinosaurs

And we think dinosaurs are utterly fascinating and make for the most amazing birthday parties! Here's Rohan's 3rd birthday adventure...
I saw invites similiar to these online but they were way too expensive so I made them myself and was just thrilled with how they turned out.
No party at our house is complete without balloons on the mailbox.
Liam drew some dinosaur footprints up the driveway for his little brother's party which made me so happy because Michael did the same thing for Liam's dinosaur party
We had a yummy afternoon tea...
Pterydactyl wings...
Dinosaur nuggets...
Dinosaur eggs...
and some munchies for the Herbivores...
My obsession with mini milk bottles and stripey paper straws may never end...
We had a lovely little post-Christmas gathering of family and friends.
The dessert table was a big hit.
Jurassic jellies...
Grape kebabs...
Watermelon spikes, footprint cookies and fossil cookies (you can order special cutters to make these but I did these free-hand using the basic cutters I already had. They're a bit wobbly but you get the idea!)
The yummy, easy, dinosaur dig cake...

He'd been practicing for the singing of "Happy Birthday" for months!
This kid is just the sweetest little man. He delights us and brings so much joy everyday.

He's pretty proud of knowing how to (almost) make "free"...
If you'd like more details on the Dinosaur themed activities we had at the party check out this post here

Note to self: Butter cookies should be wrapped before placing in absorbent paper bags...
Our 'Thank you for coming' take home bags were full of fun and delicious goodies...
A pretty simple party but also simply fun.

Happy birthday, Cuddly Bear xx
