A Lego Land Birthday

Last weekend, our dining room was transformed into Lego Land 
for a very special 5th birthday party.

Our E-Bear was turning five! 

 Polka dots and Lego bricks were everywhere!

The birthday boy's table was especially festive.
He had been looking forward to this day for weeks.  

There were also lots of special touches, like a Duplo centerpiece (made by the kids)
E-Bear's name written in Duplos (made by Daddy)
and Lego candy pieces at everyone's place (thanks to Papa).

We woke early for a special breakfast of cereal, whipped cream and sprinkles.  Then it was time to get ready for the party!  E-Bear had chosen chicken fingers, shells and cheese, rolls and canned oranges for the lunch menu.  Gourmet, I know :).

After we enjoyed lunch, it was time to play "Pin the Lego Man on the Tower!"
For our pre-party birthday craft, the kids had colored little lego men cutouts and placed them at each guest's place at the table.  So, after the meal, we were all ready to play.

G-Bear was the first to attempt the feat.  E-Bear followed close behind. 

Next, Papa and MoMo, Uncle Carl and Auntie Cindy too!

Daddy and Mommy played too.  

Not bad for beginners!  Daddy and Auntie Cindy were the winners!

Then, it was time to open presents.  E-Bear was such a gentleman, so excited to open his presents and very kind to show and share them with Buddy Bear once he had opened them.

Our big five year old looked great in his soldier hat!

Of course, there were plenty of Legos and a fun Lego book.

Which brings us to the cake.
E-Bear loved it.  

It was a super day for a super kid.  
E-Bear, we love you.  
What a great day we had in Lego Land!

Happy birthday, dear E-Bear, happy birthday to you!
