The Bash

It takes a village to throw a party. Thanks Mom for cleaning. Mom and Ashton for decorating. Rachel for baking the cake. Chanell for picking up the balloons and being the photographer. Ashton and Taylor for being the villians and helping with the games. And Dan for helping with the capes (I sewed about 9 capes) and scooping ice cream.
Here is how the party went...
Superheroes waiting their turn to save the day. We timed the kids through an obstacle course. First, they climbed into the playhouse to rescue a baby.
After returning the baby to her stroller they had to crawl through a tunnel to save some foxes.

After placing the foxes in a ventilated box they had to return a wallet to the rightful owner.

Then they safely detonated a bomb (popped the balloon).

And, finally, untie the hostage.

Superheroes replenish with sports drinks. (Most of them ditched their capes because they were choking them.)

While the heroes were saving the day the presents were stolen by villians. (I wish I would have filmed the screams when the villians rushed down the stairs.) The heroes captured the villians and received a clue which started them on a scavenger hunt to find the presents.

Placing the candles.

Ended the party with a pinata.

What a cool party idea. It's too bad that Fred wasn't there to enjoy it. Hopefully he's learning to levitate or something cool like that from his alien hosts.
