My Birthday Girls & Their DINO Party

I’ve never liked “joint” parties.
I have always felt that they are a lazy way for a parent to not celebrate each child individually.
That’s just me.
When Mya was born just 5 days before Sophie’s birthday, I decided right then that I would make sure they each got their own special day.

Sophie threw me a curve ball.
She said that this year, she wanted to have her party with Mya.
Sharing at it’s best.
I made SURE that is what she wanted, then went ahead with the planning.
We woke up bright and early with the girls, and headed off for a special birthday breakfast.
Lots of yummy food at Bee’s Cafe.

Doesn’t he just radiate happiness?

Once Mya was napping, we set up the treats and awaited the guests.

My favorite was by far the Dino Poop.
Apparently little chocolate cake balls look a good deal like poop.
Almost NONE of the kids would even touch them.
Sophie and Mya powered through theirs like champs.

We played a few games and colored some dinosaur pictures.
I made each of the kids (16 total) a dinosaur egg pinata.
Waaaaaaaaaaaay too much work, but the kids enjoyed smashing them open.

After the eggs, we opened gifts.
Mya was more interested in her paper bag of candy.

Sophie didn’t mind doing most of the openinig.

After gifts and snacks, everyone went home.
The girls played about while we cleaned up and finished opening the packages.
