Batman Begins and Ends. YES!

Dakota's Birthday just finished. I think I did quite well if I so say so myself. We had a Batman party. I served the kids lunch and then we had bat man training school. We learned the stance for hand to hand combat. Then we threw some pretend punches. It sounds a little violent I know, but my house was too small for 8 kids 6 and under to be running around, besides they were not throwing the punches at each other. I had planned some inside games because we were experiencing scattered showers but that idea went out the window when I heard how loud it was inside my tiny apartment, so we went outside during a break in the rain. After the hand to hand combat training, my husband pretended to be a bad guy. The boys had to get past him by any means necessary. They loved that too. They went inside and decorated their own cupcakes as a reward for graduation from batman training school. Then we opened presents and played with the toys. All in all I think it went pretty well for flying by the seat of my pants. At least it shows that I am flexible, but I was glad to see it end.

Jason and Jocelyn are still talking about how much fun they had, and Jason has the bruises to prove it! Of course the bruises had less to do with the hadn to hand combat adn more to do with his attempt at flying off the bunk bed.

It was a fabulous party, Alyson!
