A 3rd and 5th birthday!!! OUTDOOR MOVIE!!!

Finally I am getting around to blogging about the kid birthday party!!!

Only a month later :) Nothing wrong with that right???

The party theme was Outdoor Movie Theater...so get ready for picture overload and enjoy!

The day started off with some relaxing swim time with my immediate family.  We pretty much got everything set up the day before so we just had little things to get ready.

The main delivery the night before was of these AMAZING movie posters that my father in law made...

Um...have you ever seen anything so adorable in your life?????? 

 Obviously the movie choices were Tangled and Megamind.  Two wonderful choices if I do say so myself!

Pool Time with the girls and Grandpa...
Marta and her girls...yes it should be illegal to look that good after having three kids. :)
 Maggie getting her tan on...
 Some flowers from our backyard for our table in the kitchen...
 The Birthday Boy and Girl!!!
 More flowers from the yard in some recycled blue bottles.  They are actually vodka bottles that we took the old labels off...
 The boys smoking cigars and hanging out until it got dark...
 The popcorn bar was DELICIOUS.  We had candies of all kinds and SO many different flavors to sprinkle onto the popcorn for magical goodness :)
 Thankfully Maggie has stellar handwriting to label all of the goodies.
 The popcorn bar was a HUGE hit
 The food was AMAZING.  Barbeque, Pulled pork and the best macaroni and cheese anyone has ever experienced...just sayin'
 More swim time for the kiddos...

 And tasty beverages for the big kids...
How amazing are the daisy mason jar lids that I got from Heather????
 Wonderful friends...

 A mini photo session of the cutest girls EVER...
 Presents...presents and MORE presents...
 Jimmy helped Ella and I tackled gifts with Tyler
 Here are the favors for the kiddos.  Each kid got a pillow to lay on while we watched the movies :)
 Cute popcorn decor that my friend Michelle came up with.  Again, thanks to Maggie who helped me put them together...and my mom for picking up the popcorn!
 A picture from every year!!
 Family shot...the only one of the whole day.  It's the best we had :)

 Here is our movie screen set up
 As it gets darker it starts to get real :)
LOVED how it turned out!!
 Glasses for the parents kids :)
 4 cuties in the back yard...
 Adie and Meade :)
 The kids were great during the movie.  They sat down and watched EVERY minute of it :)
 A sisters pic
 and glasses pic
thank you to everyone who made it for the kids birthday.  We always have so much fun trying to make it memorable for them and for our families.  Happy Summer!!!


  1. Those are really great choices! I bet everyone appreciated both movies, even the dads! No matter how they try to avoid those movies when they're alone, they eventually realize it's possible for them to have fun watching those!

  2. Your pictures are fabulous! I am on the fence with planning my daughters 4th birthday party. Do you think a group of 4 year old' would enjoy this kind of party?

  3. Nice screen, what material did you use and what type of sound system?

  4. I would like to know the materials you used for the screen and type projector and sound equipment you used.

  5. This is a truly a stunning party dear! You can organize parties according to availability when your kids are small but once they are grown up you’ll need to organize their parties according to their demands. I am also looking for top Chicago venues for my daughter’s themed birthday party!!
