Andrew's Maze Party was a smashing success!
The kids followed the signs and arrows to the part of the park where we were having the party.
And they found this!
and then they found Andrew!
First on the agenda? An obstacle course! They had to climb through tents, run down a foot piano, crawl through a tunnel, stop to make some bubbles and climb into the last tent where they blew a whistle and then ran back to the start. Then they all cycled through over and over until the obstacle course slowly fell apart! ;)
Then we started a scavenger hunt! Each kid got a monogrammed bag with tools to help them search: a mini telescope, a compass and a magnifying glass.
and they each got a map with star stickers to show them where the goodies were hidden.
and off they go!
Then we ate and sang and had cake!
Then they ran and yelled and laughed (and cried!) and wild mayhem took over.
and when everyone was sufficiently tired, we all went home.
It was great. I really think Andrew soaked in some love. He took a turn towards cranky about two hours in, so we took that as our cue and started to wind things down. But once we got home, he was glowing. He went through his gifts and was lovey and just so happy all evening. And so, I'd say, he had a great time! And so did I!
