Jackson woke up to these balloons. He kept saying "Woah!" and pointing at them. At first he was too afraid to go under them. He warmed up pretty fast and started hitting them. Poor kid, later that night when we put him to bed, I took all the balloons down. When he didn't fall asleep, I brought him back out and he was heartbroken that his precious balloons were gone. Oops. If I had known he wasn't going to bed, I would have left them up!
A quick video that morning. Check out his awesome bedhead!
He didn't stay sad for long though...
More balloons on the front door
Jackson is one loved boy. There were 2 more presents that aren't even pictured! I thought Jackson would love tearing into the wrapping paper, but he was a bit nervous to open the presents himself. He watched Dad open them instead! We took a break halfway through the present opening, so Jackson could play with some of his toys. I think it helped him feel not as overwhelmed.
We went to Chick-Fil-A for Jackson's birthday dinner--his favorite! We then came home and played some games.
A little twist on the Pin the Tail on the Donkey game.
Jackson won (he was allowed to look). Grandpa came in second place.
We then colored and cut out these elephants. Stick a party blower in there, and you have an elephant trunk! Jackson thought they were pretty funny.
Our zoo animal display. Jackson kept sneaking off with the animals throughout the day.
The picture bow
These kabobs were a bust. They wouldn't stand up on their own!
Jackson thought these masks were hilarious. He refused to wear them at his party though!
Happy Birthday, Jackson!!!
