Eric had a blast. He has been looking forward to this party for weeks! It was his first birthday party outside of the house. Usually we do birthday parties at home or at a relatives house. Never have I planned a party.
He knew what he was getting from us, as he went with us to buy it (thanks Mom for having plans that day LOL). But he wasn't allowed to have any of it (except the Wii games we got him from Game Stop) until the party. But he was super excited to see what else he got.
It was funny when he opened up a bag, and it had clothes in it - he just moved right along to the next bag. We literally didn't see some of the clothes he got till we got home! He has some nice looking outfits!
|Three nice shirts | a sharp looking suit | some shorts and jeans.|
|T-shirts and socks | Eric got a Thundercats shirt, but I think Chris is more excited! LOL|
|Variety of Legos|
Of course he got some Legos, and even some "Awesomest presents ever!"

Now. The Play Pets is a new thing from Peter Piper Pizza. Its a new party package they offer (although you can buy a pet from the counter, its actually cheaper to do the party option). Here is what the Peter Piper website says about the Play Pets... "Introducing Piper PlayPets, the best friend your child creates! Each party-goer chooses their very own animal skin and watches it come to life in the form of a cuddly plush. Be sure to grab the camera as they wish upon a star that will stay inside their animal forever. PLUS, this package comes with plenty of Game Tokens so guests can play for cool outfits and accessories!" Which is really cute. There are some really cute outfits too - both boy and girl centered. Also some gender neutral outfits.

And of course: can't forget the Birthday cake! We bought the cake at Walmart - and instead of calling ahead, we decided to wing it.. so his cake had flowers.... but he LOVED it, it was yummy chocolate cake!
We had put trick / magic candles... So he starts blowing them out - they relight, and he slowly starts backing away while trying to blow them out. It was the funniest thing ever!!!
While we were there, we watched a big monsoon Haboob / dust storm come through. After the dust it downpoured LOL. But all I have is pictures of the dust.
