Mikey is such a big kid!! For his 5th birthday, he wanted to have "a knight birthday party, with an obstacle course, water balloons, and cake". And that's just what we did!! We invited his guests to make their own shields, gave them their own swords (foam ones, thankfully), and sent them out back for some real knight training! Here's some of the highlights:
Mikey's cake turned out awesome...of course that's cause I didn't make it!!
Knights-to-be making their shields (personalizing the "crest" on the shield):
Time to head out back to train on the "sweet" obstacle course Jaron made for the kids:
They had to "joust" the balloons (w/a water noodle) and slay the dragon (toy) to rescue Buzz Lightyear!! (in his laundry basket dungeon!!)
The water balloons came in handy when that dragon wouldn't die and we had to splash him off the fence!! (Don't be deceived by his size, he was vicious!)
