I love a good theme

 This weekend we celebrated my nephew's fourth birthday. My sister-in-law always does it up right with awesome themes and decorations galore.. a girl after my heart :) She is a teacher to boot so she always has super creative ideas!

My nephew is at the age where he is starting to become interested in LEGO so the theme 'Turning 4 is Awesome' was a prefect fit. 

There was personalized LEGO art everywhere, along with fun 2D banners. The kiddie's lunch consisted LEGO shaped cucumbers, PB and Jelly Sandwhiches and cheese and crackers. So cute and fun! The birthday boy helped make his birthday Brownies and after the kiddos went to bed we decorated the brownies with dyed icing and m&ms. My sister-in-law bought LEGO men decal faces off of Etsy and we put these on balloons, cups, and snack bowls. An easy detail and really added to the decorations!
A perfect theme for kids this age and lots of neat ideas that you can make from supplies you have around the home. 

In other news. Max has had some more 'firsts' this past week. He found a wheel bigger than him, he had his first hair cut and took it like a champ. He went into the water finally at the splash pad, after many visits of just looking at the water from the perimeter, and he had his first freezie tonight while sitting on the front porch bench like a big boy :) He is such a toddler now! Happy 1 1/2 years today big boy! :)

In two weeks from now we have two weeks of vacation!!! We are looking forward to visiting family, going to the zoo, picnics and trips to the beach! We love summer! :)
