I can't believe the Tyler is already 6 years old! This is a fun age because he is getting really good at reading and being more helpful around the house. Tyler requested a Star Wars birthday party this year. We just did a small party with a few homemade games and activities. Luckily a bunch of 5 and 6 year olds are easy to please on a low budget. I made the cake with some of his starwars toys and wrote the star wars logo with frosting. Some of his friends came wearing their favorite star wars dress ups and Ty wore his Darth Vader costume that he got for his birthday from Grandma and Grandpa Hansen. Tyler and his friends flew their rocket ship (a blanket on the floor) through a meteor shower (balloons filled with starburst candy) and had to pop them to get the treat. Then they had to use the force to help them hit a hanging balloon with their light sabors while blindfolded. I was surprised how much the boys got into this. We also played find the asteroid and then when they were having light sabor battles in the backyard Andy came to attack wearing a Darth Vader mask. Luckily I had a bunch of water balloons ready for them to get him back, It was really fun. Happy Birthday Tyler!!!!!
