Football Party

 Ben decided that he wanted a football birthday party.  He was so excited for his friends to come over and celebrate him!

When everyone arrived, the boys colored football helmets according to their favorite team.  Ben laid out his beloved trading cards so people could get ideas.

Next, we took the boys outside to do a relay race.  The boys had to do mountain climbers, push-ups, jumping jacks, and a somersault before they could run back to slap the next person's hand. The boys loved race and got into it cheering on their team.  Of course, Ben was jumping with excitement the whole time.
The boys then engaged in a football game, which is what Ben wanted all along, to play football with his friends. 
Then the boys came in and we played Don't Eat the Helmet.

Next, we opened presents. Ben got many nice things from his great fiends.

After we opened presents, we had cake and ice cream. Once again, Brandon made the cake and it looked fantastic! He even did the cake in the Denver Bronco colors, one of Ben's favorite teams to watch.
Then the boys went outside and tried their luck at throwing a football through a hula hoop!

After throwing the football through a hula hoop, we blindfolded the boys, turned them around, and counted how many kicks it took for the boy who was blindfolded to actually kick a balloon  (like a punter).  This game brought much laughs.  The boys also enjoyed popping their balloon after they finished their turn.

While we were waiting for parents to arrive, Brandon was throwing the football for the boys to catch!

Once again, I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked. It was a fun day to celebrate our Ben with his best buddies!
