so you all know i love a good party, right? this love of all things party was driven in part years ago by a good friend of mine who used to throw the most amazing detailed parties, and when i was sans kids i could give all my free time to help set-up. well, 4 kids later for her she has toned down her party throwing and honed it to a t. she narrows the focus of the party and themes it around what the birthday kid is all about.
for her son’s 4th birthday, they had a mud bath party! they live in a little house on a couple acres of property, where they are also currently building a new home. so the entire property is a dirt field. or when it’s wet, a mud bath! i wish i had taken a picture of all their black rain boots lined up at the front door.
for decorations all they did was turn on a sprinkler and throw out a plastic tarp for a giant slip’n’slide. the kids loved it! we were instructed to wear grubby clothes or bathing suits and to bring a change of clothes for after.
shockingly, this is about as muddy as silas dared to get. i know my boy likes to get muddy, so this was a shocker!
