Cullen turned 6 on March 13th. But let's be honest, the weather was horrible this winter and spring. On March 13th, there was still snow and it was about 22 degrees. So we convinced Cullen to wait for summer to celebrate his birthday with pals. Cullen had lots of grandiose ideas when it came to his party: football, swimming, water ballons, races, etc. After hearing this, I came up with the idea of the birthday olympics: obstacle course, water balloon toss, tug of war, dock jumps and three-legged race. The obstacle course was hands-down the best event. The course included: hit the water balloon off the tee, potatoe sack, dizzy bat, jump over the Maui Mat, hop scotch, crawl through the tunnel, face squirt gun fire on the way to the finish line. The kids loved it! And the ones who were not racing loved barraging the racer with squirt gun fire. we tracked times and wins on a scoreboard, and at the end everyone received a medal or two. Happy almost 6 1/2 birthday Cullen!
