As we were arriving, we saw this plane doing all kinds of loops, flips, and dives in the sky -- and then we realized there was a person standing on it!!!! And then we found out it was a young woman!! Completely crazy.
The end of the afternoon was very exciting -- Japanese war planes came diving in dropping bombs and making all kinds of explosions as a radio announcer gave us a rendition of what it would have been like at Pearl Harbor in 1941. Very dramatic. Tora Tora Tora!!
After the dust settled and the Americans surprised us all with a big grand finale and the dust settled again, we came home for some good ol' cupcakes and snacks.
Since this was the world's easiest birthday party and I felt a little guilty for not having to put a little more effort into it, I copied these things that I found on Pinterest.
But, after laboring over 3 of them, I decided the boys probably wouldn't eat them anyway, so decided to make them more of the centerpiece. Sure enough, there was still 1 left after the party was over. :)
We were missing of Colsen's buddies due to travel and illness, but the group that came was a cheerful, fun bunch!
A few extra cousins, sister, grandpa, aunt and uncle rounded out the celebration. Fun day!!
