3,2,1...Blast Off!

My little boy turns three today. It seems so hard to believe that he is three already, but I must face the fact that he is. (sniff, sniff).
This weekend we celebrated Riley's birthday along with his good friend Noah's. The boys were born 4 days apart. Noah's Mom, my good friend Cecilia, and myself worked together to make sure the boys had an out of this world birthday celebration. We went with a space theme. Cecilia made these incredible and adorable invitations. I should have a picture here, but sadly I don't. She also made great food labels for all the food we made for the party.
We had Gravity Grub and Extraterrestrial Munchies.

We also served Cosmic Fruit Salad, PB & J Stars and Moon Sammies and Moon Rock Meatballs.
There were also Asteroid Dogs and Solar Flair Brats (I just don't have a picture of them). There were 3 Refueling Stations along with Rocket Fuel for the kiddos. This one just happened to be my favorite.

For dessert, we had star cake pops. These guys were a big hit and went very fast.

I had a lot of fun making the boys' cake. I got to use wires (for the first time) and metallic disco dust. Of course the cake was all chocolate, because according to Riley "Chocolate gives me power".

The boys seem to be very happy with their cake.

And enjoyed eating their very own special mini cakes complete with a martian popping out of it.
