Let's backtrack for a moment

So much has happened since Zeke's birthday on August 2nd, but I don't want to just skip past it! Zeke's 5 yr old Super Hero Birthday Party was a smash hit! It was fun and funny, complete with plenty of super heroes, super hero obstacle course training, super food, villain smackdown tag, and swimming. At a comic book store here in Greenville, I found old comic books for $1 a piece and made them into placemats for party favors. They also made great penants which hung around as decoration, but we didn't capture those. I had SO much fun putting together this party, but even MORE fun pretending to be the General Overseer of the Heroes in Training. I mean, I'm starting to think Z likes to be in character so much because of a nurture thing, not a nature thing...

 My sis made these awesome cupcakes...my favorite ones were the SpiderMan ones...so impressive...last year she made incredible Kung Fu Panda ones...just saying, if you ever need someone to bake some super yummy homemade cupcakes and decorate them adorably, she's your gal.

 We also ate Wonder Dogs (corn dogs), Power Bombs (grapes), POP!corn, SpiderMan berries (strawberries), Bat cutouts of cheese...it was fun coming up with themed food

 I made some green colored ice cubes to make it super hulky

 Super Heroes coming face to face

Hulk SMASH! Those Hulk fists from Aunt Ya Ya Yee were a hit!

 Supers preparing for training

On the Obstacle Course the Supers trained by...
 shooting Repulsor Blasts at the target (silly string)

 Swung and climbed like SpiderMan

 Flew up the mountain (climbed up the ladder) to Asgard (the treehouse) and slid back down to Earth though the clouds (balloons)

 Used the Hulk fists to SMASH a balloon

 Balanced our way across a beam like Black Widow

 Leaped over tall buildings like SuperMan

 Me too, me too!!

Hit the Bullseye like Hawkeye would

 Threw shields into the sand pit like Captain America

 And THEN we played pin the shield on Captain America, per Wonder Boy's (Zeke) request...every boy had a name...here you see Danger Davis being spun around

Hmmm. Not exactly the right place Danger Davis. 

 THEN, a villain known as the Riddler, escaped from prison and the Supers had to use their skills they'd been sharpening to track down and capture the villain using Water Balloons of Justice.

For this post, I tried to pick the best pictures of CMize flailing his body around


 Love this picture with all our 4 and 5 year old supers!

 Captain America popsicles

Just soaking it all in...

It was a 5th birthday to remember!
