ROAR! A Dinosaur Birthday Bash

This past weekend we celebrated Lincoln and his friend, Zeke's big 3rd birthday. The boys are 6 days apart, so we thought we'd combine forces and have all our friends over at once. Both boys are really into dinosaurs right now, so figuring out a theme was fairly easy. And like everyone in the universe these days, we turned to Pinterest for lots of fun party planning ideas!

We bought matching t-shirts for the boys to dress them in that day and they could not have been more excited about the big party! Lincoln has been talking about it for the past 6 weeks...pretty much since the day we told him about it, so expectations were set very high.

Morgan and I consolidated the decorations we had and just decided to go with as many colors as possible (to match all the very colorful dinosaurs of course) and set up dino birthday hats, dino lanterns and a big ROAR sign to take photos in front of. In addition, we lined the tables with all of the boys dinosaur toys and set up a dino excavation site in the yard, along with a kiddy pool and slip and slide for all the little ones to play with. Everything turned out great!

We did, have one minor hiccup with the food, when I realized that we forgot to turn the slow cooker on until halfway through the day, so our pulled pork was nowhere near ready when guests started to show up at 4PM. Luckily we had hot dogs for the kiddos along with a bunch of sides and most importantly CAKE, and even though some of the adults likely went home hungry, fun was had by all!

All in all, I think both boys really enjoyed their big day and we're so grateful for everyone who showed up to celebrate these two crazy kiddos!
