Clones and Kids

Kimball had a Star Wars-nerd Birthday campout last night. I don't have any photos because I sent along a camera but it never left the backpack. Rumor has it that the boys dueled with lightsabers and took turns with the Clone Trooper helmet the entire time, breaking only for food. (I highly recommend birthday parties that involve dads and boys camping and moms staying home!) I do have a photo of these cupcakes that Alli and I threw together. I think this is my fourth Star Wars themed birthday cake, and that isn't counting Kimball and Jared's lightsaber cake for Cub Scouts last year. Time for our family to get a new obsession, methinks.

Also, I just updated our homeschool blog with a couple of posts if you'd like to see what we've been learning.

Now that sounds like my kind of party. You always have the best ideas! We are actually going to copy your idea of the popcorn invites (was that Henry's party? I can't remember) for Ned's birthday this year. It will be for a movie party, not a circus like your fabulous idea. Much easier for me. :)

I am glad that Kimball had a good time. What a nice dad!
