Digger Party

30 Sep

Us moms had a bit of a tea party this week, well we like to call it a play date and the house we were at happens to have a big building site in front of them. The absolute joy on the one little guys face when he realized there was a construction site in front of the house was pure joy to watch… There was so much waving to the digger drivers, and much excitement as the bob cats drove past and even hooted at us. It was a tea party with a difference, that’s for sure!

I was amazed again at the difference between boys and girls, and just how amazing a digger can be for boys!

I haven’t done a party theme for a while so thought this was the perfect excuse! Gorgeous little Adam… I hope your mom maybe gives you a digger party at your next birthday 🙂
