A few days after we returned from Hawaii in August (on Chris' actual birthday), we celebrated his 12th birthday with an all-boy, "get in the game" party. We organized some outdoor games, including a "How Well Do You Know Chris?" quiz, and some of the kids also played "Rock Band" and "Mario Kart Wii" downstairs in the family room. It was a nice group of boys and a pretty easy party all in all. Thank goodness for a nice day--that's one nice thing about having an August birthday, even though he was SUPPOSED to be born in December!
The airplane obstacle course (one player is the airplane in a blindfold, and his partner, the air traffic controller, has to navigate him on the runway so he doesn't step on any of the obstacles)--this was a popular game!)
My mom scored with her great birthday cake!
