Noah's birthday

So my baby turned 6 a couple of weeks ago. I CAN'T believe it has been 6 years already. In a moment of weakness, I decided to do a birthday party here at our house. We decided to do a Mad Scientist party. I know..sounds crazy, right? A bunch of kids and lots of mess was exactly what it was, but let me tell you, we had a blast. Well, the kids had a blast.

When they got here, Noah handed them their box with their lab uniforms in them (goggles and lab coat). Then we made marshmallow and toothpick structures, lava lamps, and slime. We played pin the goggles on the professor, and ended the party with an erupting volcano that Noah and I made and the famous diet coke and mentos experiment. Here are some pictures from the party.

My first attempt at an erupting vocano cake.

Wow Ang! You are such a nice mom. I don't know if I have it in me to be that nice of a mom and throw a birthday party like that! :) If you want to try the fish thing again you can have ours. We can't seem to kill it even after a week and a half of no food and Kannon trying to catch it.

I seriously can't believe you have a 6 year old :) That seems so crazy. We are getting soo old. What a fun party! You are a fun mom! I don't think I am brave enough. I am sure they had a blast. Maybe next week we can actually get together. Check your schedule and see if there is a day that works. Maybe you guys can come over for lunch and we can let the kids play outside. Call me or text me if you can :) PS - I have some other news to tell you :)
