Cars Party

Little Dudeman turned 3 at the end of April...
I still can't believe how grown up he's getting!
Someone needs to slow time down a bit.

Things have been kinda hectic around here since we recently found out we're moving to Indiana...
Between that & his recent eye muscle surgery we decided not to invite any friends this year,
but we threw a little Cars party to celebrate with his Nani.
It was still lots of fun!

Cute right?
Here's what we ate:

Wheel Well pasta with Tow Mater sauce
(wheel shaped pasta with spaghetti sauce)

Fillmore's fruit platter & dip
(red strawberries, yellow pineapple, & green apples to represent a stoplight)

and my personal favorite...
the Cozy Cone cake (:
(ice cream cones & graham crackers dipped in orange candy melts as cake toppers)

We also were going to have...
Fillmore's organic fuel & windshield washer fluid
(organic apple juice & kool-aid)
Luigi's leaning tower of tires
(stacked chocolate covered donuts)
I bought everything,
but I forgot to make them.
We had plenty of food though, so it wasn't a huge loss.

For games:
We made some box cars with the kids so they could sit in them to watch Cars.
We were going to put headlights, taillights, & license plates on them & let the kids decorate them,
but we never finished since the kids were too excited to 'drive' their cars.
We didn't even get to watch Cars since Little Dudeman just wanted to watch WordWorld.
But hey, it was his birthday, so he got to choose what to watch!

I had planned on playing red light green light too,
but we ended up just running around our driveway as Nani was leaving.

I was also going to make party hats that looked like construction cones,
but that didn't happen before the party.
Ah well.
We still had a ton of fun,
& it was great spending time with Nani!

The following weekend I threw an Up party to celebrate Hubby's birthday...
Stay tuned to read all about it!
