a bounce house party | beckam turns 4

This last Sunday we celebrated Beckam's 4th birthday. 
I was determined to not get too involved in throwing a big bash, and focus more on the things that he would love and enjoy. 
Really, the only early prep I did do was go to Target a week or so before the party, and have him help me pick out a couple of items of decor. 
It was very liberating. 
It turns out... zero prep means you can still have an awesome party.
Maybe because I busted out some cake pops the night before the party....
Or, it was most likely the fact that I got a bounce house. 
Yes.
Never have a party without a bounce house.
I have told you this before.
If you learn just one thing from all of my blogging, it should be this fact.

Cakepops + bounce house = 
Gosh he's cute.
You know who else is cute?
Bennett. 
He had a whole lot of freedom to roam the food tables, and he took full advantage of it.
Double fisting it here with a strawberry in one hand and a chip in the other.
And look how TALL he is!!
Brody was darling as always too, but was far too busy running wild with friends, and tackling girls in the bounce house, to get near me for a solo picture.
I did happen to snag a pic of a group of the kids though... and as you can see Beckam looks like he is having the worst day of his life...
 Cakepop with a candle to the rescue!
The morning of the party I found a box of deflated beach balls that we had ordered back around Easter time.
You may recall my farmer's idea to play a life size version of hungry-hungry-hippos?
This was what they were for. 
But they came after Easter.
Amazon fail.
They certainly came in handy for the party though.
24 beach balls.
We strung some, we threw some in the bounce house, and a good dozen of them were used by the adults to kick at each other with as much force as possible.
Quite a lot of fun, in fact.
We wound up the party with some gift opening...
And I am still completely unsure of who gave Beckam what.
A bunch of kids with a pile of gifts is pure chaos.
And I barely tried to oversee it.
 All in all, this kid had the very best party.
AND, if that wasn't enough...
The next day was his actual birthday.
If you don't follow me on Instagram and watch my stories... you are missing out.
I posted Beckam's BIG surprise on Monday, and he was just the sweetest.
He got his very own little dirt bike.
With training wheels.
And safety gear of course.
He has to be the cutest 4 year old ever, cruising around on it.
It is safe to say that he will be disappointed for the rest of his life when it comes to birthdays.
This one takes the cake.
