I thought this might be Kyle’s last themed party so I had to do it up right. He loves cooking and thinks he will open his own restaurant some day so I used that as my theme. His invitations where printed on manly recipe cards.
We had been recording episodes of Good Eats on our DVR for about a week. Our plan was to have that playing on TV while all the boys were coming in, but some how Rock Band took over. Go figure, a TV, boys, and a video game, silly me, what was I thinking.
Once everyone arrived the boys were asked to put on some aprons and make some lasagnas for lunch.
While the lasagnas were baking they went outside and played cold potato, with ice cold water balloons.
In case the ice cold water balloons weren’t enough refreshment the boys came inside and did a root beer tasting.
They knew their root beers! I was impressed. The favorites were IBC and Mug. Then they made some fruit kabobs before sitting down to eat.
After lunch we brought out the bugs.
Followed up by the stinky cheese.
I was really surprised by how many folks tried insects and how many thought the stinky cheese tasted good. We also had some nasty tasting jelly beans like from Harry Potter, but I didn’t get good pictures of that, see the video. As to not leave a bad taste in their mouths, we saved the best for last.
Then it was back to Rock Band
And who could forget presents
Can you tell his Grandparents did good?
Perhaps the biggest surprise was his cousin from Logan showing up
I don’t know about them, but I had a blast. I’m so glad Kyle has such a good group of friends and they were able to come celebrate with us. I’ve put together a little video or the craziness that was the party…enjoy.
