Toy Story Birthday

We had Ken's Buzz Lightyear birthday party on Saturday at our house. It was pretty much the coolest birthday party ever and we all had a blast, especially Ken!

Since I have so much free time I thought it would be fun to make Ken this masterpiece. It was my first time using fondant, but I was so happy with the way it turned out and Ken loved it. (Joey Comment: Amber seriously made this cake and she made it all the way from the brown fence to the very shaped moon. She stayed up until 5am finishing it, two nights in a row and some how managed to study, do clinicals, etc... I only say this because I think some may doubt.)

I posted a million pictures of it because it took me 12 hours to make, lived for about 5 hours, and was destroyed in about 2 minutes. Totally worth it for the look on Ken's and the other kids' faces.
I was particularly pleased with how the moon turned out.

The bounce house was a hit and the kids were so entertained I didn't have to try to come up with games to entertain them. Genius.
Ken had a perm-a-grin all day!
King of the slide!

Ken and Rebeca had to sit by each other at the head of their table to eat their pizza.
I love this picture of Elizabeth with my mama. Grandma was very excited because it was her first time to ever play in a bounce house!

Getting everyone gathered around for some pinata action
Collecting the goods. You can tell these kids are still only 3-4 because it took them like 15 minutes to finally get all the prizes and candy off the ground.
Ken was quite proud of his cake
Blowing out the candles...I'm not sure if Ken was actually the one to blow it out or the one of the 7 other kids trying to blow it out before he could.

Joey Comment: one of the cool things was that we had the bounce house for the whole day. So, before the party Ken and I bounced to our delight. Then after the party Amber, Ken, Ada (Amber's friend from Anesthesia school), and myself bounced for hours again. We had a great time and I loved being a kid again!
