Mother of Boys

All Aboard the Party Train!

My little spunky guy finally turned 3! He wanted a train birthday party this year and was all about his “Friday Birthday Party”.

I had forgotten how difficult it is planning a party with the birthday boy constantly around. He kept thinking that the day we went and ordered the cake was his birthday. Or the day we made his Thomas Train was his birthday. Or the day we bought the birthday supplies. Needless to say, it was a long week for the little engineer. 😉

Finally, Friday arrived and it was time to get dressed up and Par-Tay!

He was stoked!

He loved his train and even though it didn’t turn out like this one, it works for a 3 year old.

I made Drake his birthday banner inspired by this one that shows him growing up.

All the little engineers received hats, bandanna’s, and road sign suckers.

I a made ‘Pin the whistle on James’ game.

The kids loved it! Since they’re all still little, we used their hats to cover their eyes. It worked a lot better.

Next up, birthday bingo of course!! I made Thomas the Train bingo cards.

Grand Central Station was upstairs.

Where we had several trains set up for all the kiddos to play with.

I LOVE toys and having 3 boys I’ve gathered quite the train collection. Now they’ve come in handy.

It’s time to re-energize in the Fueling Station where we had pizza and cupcakes.

I was really pleased at how the Thomas cupcake cake turned out. Thanks to trusty ol’ Wal-mart. I’m all about one-stop-shopping these days.

It was such a fun party! Drake got lots of Disney Cars toys and loved everyone of his gifts. I think all the kiddos had a blast and it was so fun to see Drake really into it this year.
