EBoy really is growing up. For the last 2 years he’s absolutely refused any attempts or offers people have made for facepainting at various parties, festivals, and events we’ve attended. This weekend we were at the birthday party for the little girl of some family friends. They did an at home party but hired the most amazing facepainting artist to embellish all of the kids. EBoy jumped right in to get his face painted and marveled at his cool new scorpion.
ETot who is usually the first in line for anything involving paint (or getting messy) refused to have any part of the facepainting activities. He did however do his best to permanently attach himself to their little battery powered ATV:
EBoy has now continually requested to have a birthday party at home this year and invite a facepainter. She also created the most elaborate balloon flowers I’ve ever seen for the girls. For the boys she made balloon swords and space guns which were a huge hit. Here he is having a trampoline sword fight with one of his very best buddies(note the matching balloon holsters she put around their waists):
Who says a princess party can’t be fun for boys? I’ll definitely be keeping the facepainter’s information handy just in case we copy this idea for a fabulous kid party.
