Maximo is 4! Things That Go Party

I always think of a theme a few months before Maximo's party and then look for things while I'm out and about. Last year was the "Ocean Theme" and today was "Things that GO!". I didn't tie all the details together as much as I wanted because now there is two and it was a really busy week.

I had a couple of students come to help out and I gave them the camera to take pictures since I had my hands full. So there are no photos of the little details like the submarine sausages. But you can see the "stoplight" cupcakes and tons of the kids playing.

We invited Maximo's new class and some of our friends' kids. It was a grand time, but it was super hot! My classroom is located outside next to the playground, so after about four trips on my bike to bring things up, we were set to go. We had to keep chasing Maximo out of my room because it was cool in my room. We kept it fairly simple. It was nice to meet some of the parents of kids in Maximo's class.

I took a little video of the birthday song:

And here are the pictures:
And now the festivities are over.
In a few hours we'll have a 4 year old.
And we have a day to regroup before going back to work!

You are too funny! I don't know if I'd call stop-light cupcakes and submarine sausages "keeping it simple"! Well done, J!

Happy birthday, M!
