I have pictures! Zion's birthday may have been almost a month ago, but I say it is never too late for a you to enjoy the pictures, right?
My wonderful friend Mary, who made this amazing cake, was a creative genius for Zion's party too.
She also took all of these pictures. Not only is she a talented baker, she has an eye for photography too! (plus, she is just an all around wonderful friend)
First out little knights and princesses decorated shields, preparing themselves for battle.
After they girded themselves, they spent some time playing with Zion's new castle.
Remember the moment of unveiling? It is one of the only pictures of his birthday that I took!
After a quick meal, and some gift unwrapping,
it was time for the knight's quest. (plus, I needed something to keep the kids busy while Andy went out to buy candles - which somehow I had forgotten)
Our volunteer dragon.
He held up under the enthusiastic beating the knights felt was needed in order to thwart the dragon.
Our reigning king holding the "Holy Grail"...
and having a bit of an "over stimulation" meltdown.
He just needed a little attention from his "best friend", the dragon.
Girls, getting in the swing of a boy party - wrestling on the floor! I LOVE it!
But of course, this was more to their liking. Dancing in a circle.
Geez, I need a girl in this house to balance out all the testosterone!
And of course, we finished off with some cake!
