Graham's Backyard Camping Party

Meredith E By Meredith E  in Birthday


Party Recap

We hosted our first "all boy" birthday party for our son's seventh birthday. There were ten little boys ages 4-10.

We started the night with hot dogs, chips and cupcakes. Then moved on to camp games and swimming. We ended the night with smores over the fire and present opening. I think the boys finally fell asleep in the tent a little after midnight!

The next morning we had a "donut bar" with assorted donuts and chocolate milk and orange juice. The boys played outside some more and then came in to watch a movie and wait for parents to pick them up.

    Thanks a lot Jillian! This was a fun (and HOT) party! I didn't get around to some planned things due to being unexpectedly out of town until the day before the party, but I am happy with how it turned out. Most importantly, my son loved it! :)
