Posts Tagged ‘William’s birthday’

William and Rocky’s birthdays are only 3 days apart and so this year we decided to combine them, as William wanted to have a party and we thought may are well get 2 for one.

Our birthdays always start with them opening up their gifts in the dining room.

William was keen on having a Batman and Robin party and cakes. Thankfully Toby likes a cake challenge and he was happy to do the Batman and Robin cakes. He did a great job, I thought! Toby wanted to pay homage to the olden day styling. We made it a superhero party so we’d get a nice variety of costumes. We had Catgirl, Hulk, Superman, Batman, Supergirl, Ironman and so on…… One of the things I love best about William is he loves to dress up, I think that is a great childhood activity, and honestly fun when your an adult too :)

We were having the party at our house this time round and went about hiring an entertainer. I called a bunch of places and Toby and I made a decision on one. We chose Batman as our character and then as it got closer to the day they called and said hey because you have two birthday boys we’ll give you an extra entertainer, at no extra charge. Bonus! So we got Superman as well. They were really good and the kids had a blast. For 1.5hrs they were entertained and hot from all the stuff they had them doing. They even got a cool magic show! Before too long the party was over.

Lots of happy faces and tired kids.

William was going to be Batman for the day, but as he got a TMNT costume for his birthday he changed his mind at the last moment and went as a TMNT. Rocky still went as Robin since that was his birthday gift also. Rocky was a tad scared of the entertainers and ended up too tired and went to bed before the cakes took place so we ended up doing his cake for him 2 days later I think it ended up being. He enjoyed mixing all the colours and picking pieces off it as did his siblings.

TJ went as Flash, and Gigi went as Batgirl.

All in all a good day! So glad the weather was perfect, if anything a tad hot.

William picked a frog for his cake this year.

Once again it was a combined effort from Toby and I. We actually make a good team when it comes to cake making. I make the cake, and shape it. Toby ices the cake and does the tubing. I then do the finishing touches. The kids love it and makes for a nice memory for them, and not a huge expense.

We had Gran and Granddad come over as did Uncle Gregg, Aunty Mel and Tom. We had a nice evening. Nana was here also, naturally.

As a special treat for William for his birthday we took him to Wiggleland with his Amegoes – Eli and Benji. They had a great time playing. William loves the Wiggles, Captain feathersword was the last of his collection of the Wiggles stuffed toys.

The adults got to sit and relax and talk whilst the boys played together.

William loved us all singing happy birthday to him.

And lastly a picture of mummy and Willy together :)

Toby and Nana took the kids to Taronga Zoo for a special family/birthday outing located on Sydney Harbour. They had a great day, took the ferry to and from our house and sadly the camera was forgotten so no pictures :(

The kids enjoyed talking about it for days, all the animals they saw etc…..
