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.
