A super duper party!!

Be prepared for lots of pictures (and several outfit changes from bat girl).

We couldn't have asked for better weather for Josie's superhero party. It was loads fun and it's fair to say that I'm officially tired.

First of all, I have to share a super cheap way to make capes (without sewing). I was wandering around the Dollar Tree and came across this red table runner. I brought it home, cut it in half, added a few embellishments with hotglue and then used safety pins to attach it. I made one for my father and one for Emma.

Super Grandpa even jumped over buildings!

I've been hinting all week that Chris was going to build a bat cave and he pulled it off using a patio umbrella, black tarp and lots of clamps.

Chris even created a special computer for the bat cave complete with a special red emergency button.

Everyone wore their superhero attire at Josie's party.


My mother came through with another incredible birthday cake.

There were several secret missions completed.

Overall, it was a super duper party.

I have to end this post by giving my husband a HUGE Father's Day shout-out.

Thank you for all you do.

You make MY life and our girls lives pretty darn amazing!!

Dad...you're pretty super amazing too!

XOXO

We did have a super time at the super party. It was a lot of fun even for the old Aunties to watch Super batgirl have so much fun.

Beach Mama said...

You can plan a party for us anytime! What a great time y'all must have had! BTW, when my oldest son was about 3, he lived, breathed, and was Superman. My FIL gave him several VHS tapes of Superman cartoons (original 1940's), and he was hooked.

Josie makes the cutest Batgirl I have ever seen):

I saw the sneak yesterday, and it's still open without comment! I'm awful. But it looks like the party was a wonderfully imaginative gala. My favorite part of the shebang are the $0.50 capes and the batcave computer. Awesome job on the whole thing, right down to the cake, and the lovely Asian crime fighter.

What a FUN party for EVERYONE!! I'm trying to decide which pic was the BEST...quite possibly grandpa towering tall buildings, but then who could be cuter than Josie Batgirl? ;)
