camping party.

we celebrated slade's seventh birthday with a camping themed party right in our own backyard. as the boys arrived, a sign instructed them to "check-in" and grab their camp pack.

the packs contained a flashlight and compass, which were used to play some of the games. the color of their bandana designated teams and had to be worn by the campers at all times.

the "camp rules" were posted along the path to the campsite.

a campground wouldn't be complete without a firepit to sit around.
(which was a favorite spot for the adults)

signs were also posted to direct campers to
the campsite, hiking trails and toilets.

sweets included: buckets filled with gummy frogs,
candy fishes and chocolate pebbles.

and of course, we roasted marshmallows and
made s'mores once it became dark.

finally, after singing happy birthday, campfire cupcakes
were served along with marshmallow ghosts.

happy birthday slade!!
