His actual birthday is on Wednesday, but we had his party a bit early because today is the day that worked best for my dad, who is a pilot, and obviously had to be here for it. ;)
I had so much fun making things for the party! I made tissue poms & hung gliders between them ($7 for a pack of like 72 of them on Amazon...can't beat that!), in front of a sign I made for JAX Airlines.
We dined on "in-flight meals" served in take out containers which consisted of a small ham/turkey & cheese sandwich, chips, animal crackers & a fruit cup. I served Izze sodas with paper straws (because they're so stinkin cute, even though they're not "airplane" themed, haha) and juice boxes. And cupcakes! With Jax's face on the toppers!
My dad was able to get us some awesome Continental/United (they're in the middle of a merger) stuff! The flight attendants heard his grandson was having a party and sent him with wings for all the kids, snacks, napkins & silverware, and some of the safety manuals, which we used as placemats! I put them (& our airplane cutout confetti) under plastic tablecloths to hold it all down. It worked perfectly.
We had cutout airplanes and coloring sheets for the kids, although they much preferred the jumpy house in the backyard (which I failed to get pics of, but it's the same one we used last year!). Overall I think the kids had a fun time!
He was so excited about his "peasants"!
We did a pull-string pinata again this year, best invention ever.
You can tell we haven't been to too many bday parties. He didn't even know to get the candy...was just freaking out yelling "DA CANDYYYY!!!" lol.
Oh yeah and I ordered matching shirts (& baby legs for Jory! with bows!) from Etsy. LOVE how they came out!
Jory was completely deliriously tired at this point, haha.
The favor bags had a Passport sticker book, granola bar & "sky bites", 3 gliders, & some wings. I gave the babies a rattle/chew toy, some puffs and some wings. We had 4 babies here today!
Once everyone left, Marlee & Troy finally got Jax convinced to change into his pilot outfit like his Papaw and pose for some pics. It was pretty much the cutest thing I have ever seen.
All in all I think it was a fun day! Thanks so much to our awesome friends who came out to celebrate our little guy!
