Since Treyton (and Jeff) are nuts about Beyblades, this year, for Treyton's 6th birthday we've decided to throw a Beyblade Tourney. I made some paper invitation and asked Treyton to pass them out to his friends at school. Parents are to RSVP so that we get an idea of the number of kids (or adults) who are interested to battle or whether or not we need to supply them a Beyblade as we don't expect every kid to buy a Beyblade to come to the party. Jeff bought a ton of used Beyblades on eBay so every kid comes home with one to play with at home.
Some parents called us "brave", some called us "crazy". This is the first time Jeff and I came up with a party with this scale, about 20 kids showed up and the house instantly became a daycare. I got a taste of what a day at a daycare was like. We had pizza, cupcakes and punch. Of the 30 balloons we got, about 10-15 balloons popped and I just love their maniacal laughs when that happened.
Despite of the high noise level, we had such a TERRIFIC time and we're gladly to do this tourney all over again! I'm thinking sometime in the Summer at our backyard. Each kid was such a character and I was happy to get to know them. They all behaved so well with the occasion "Hey, you can't do that." "Treyton's mom, so and so is cheating." "I flipped this one cupcake because it's mine and I don't want anybody to touch it."
They were definitely a big helper when it comes to singing happy birthday loudly and handing out presents for Treyton to open immediately.
We definitely think the kids had a blast, especially when we overheard a couple of kids said this before they left "Mom, can I please please come to Treyton's 7th birthday party??" Why YES!!
A special thank you for my dearest mother-in-law in assisting the part. Without her I'll die.
