A Wild Party

Evan had a wild party Saturday! He invited 6 friends and their families over for fun and food. We rented a jumpy castle for the backyard, we had games set up around the yard to keep the kids going. We also had a fun wild animal treasure hunt and a cute sand art craft for everyone to do. Of course, there was lots of food and drinks and laughs had by all.

The animal cupcakes..

Evan and his shyness.. didn't want to blow out his candles.

A funny story.... we almost didn't have the party. On Thursday evening after the boys bath I noticed a red bumpy rash on Evan. Evan having a rash is not unusual.. he seems to get little rashes occasionally. Then Friday morning is had spread a little and was brighter red so I figured I better take him in and find out what it was before it got any worse. The doctor examined him completely and said that it was definitely a viral rash but she was worried it could be a mild case of measles! I was not expecting that!! She was especially concerned since he was having a party on Sat that he didn't spread it to everyone. So the only way to confirm is a blood test..so brave little Evan laid completely still while they took blood. She expected the results by that evening. So I went ahead and continued for the party... I was pretty sure he didn't have measles he didn't have any of the other symptoms (even for a mild case). Of course, Fri evening she didn't get the results back for the measles test. It wouldn't be until Sat morning....So Sat morning at 8:30 she called to give us good news.. thankfully the party was a go!!! Nothing can ever go smoothly!

Evan had a great time and completely enjoyed his 4th birthday!!
