Chase's 5th birthday: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

Chase's absolute favorite movie is Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.  He loves the main character, Flint Lockwood, because he is an inventor (which is what Chase strives to be when he grows up). So, naturally, he wanted a party that would make Flint proud.  

Here we are!  Chase as Flint Lockwood, Adam as Flint's dad, Niki as Flint's friend, Sam Sparks, and Beckham is sporting a spaghetti and meatballs headband, leftover from Chase's Halloween old costume.


1.)  We borrowed a water slide this year to change it up from our usual bounce house.  Thankfully the weather cooperated and the kids all had so much fun!
2.)  My mom always takes a pic of me and my food table.  Thanks mom!
3.)  Chase requested a pinata, so I made a cheeseburger pinata to go with the food theme.  I used newspaper strips soaked in flour and water, then formed them around a pan and a balloon to get the shape I wanted.  After it dried completely, I glued crepe paper on the outside to cover the newsprint.

"Meatball" cake balls with white icing "noodles" / cheeseburger cookies (Nilla wafers, thin mints, orange icing and sesame seeds) / chocolate cake with rice krispy treat meatballs and icing noodles.

I think the best part of the party was the noodle pool!  You heard me right.  A pool full of noodles.  I think I ended up cooking 20 pounds of spaghetti noodles and the kids LOVED it!  Don't you wish you could take a dip in this?

I thought his invitation came from etsy.com, but I can't find the link!  Sorry!
