A Rock N Roll 3rd Birthday Party

Unbelievably, it's already been 3 years since we welcomed Owen and Mason into the world and everything changed for the better.  Now that they know what they like, we decided to let them decide what kind of party they wanted to have.  Their answer? "Rock and Roll!!"

We kept things simpler this year than we did in last year's pirate-themed party, but we still added a personal touch by creating our own original invitations and door hanger.  Erin drew the background and I pitched in on Photoshop.

We liked last year's banner so much that Erin made another, Rock N Roll-styled banner for this year's party.

Each child had their own tambourine to decorate.  Other favors were microphones, inflatable guitars, and Rock and Roll stickers.

Cupcake Cafe made a great guitar cake for Owen and Mason.  It was huge (for our 50+ guests) but delicious.

We kept the food simple this year, with some snacks and pizza.

Party colors were chosen by Owen and Mason.  Owen's favorite color is red, and Mason's favorite color is "dark blue."

The centerpiece of the party was an awesome stage that Granddaddy and Erin built.  We set up a camera and a TV so the kids could see themselves dancing, which turned out great.  Little did they know, the camera was recording the whole time :)  We made a music video out of it.

We also had a pinata and everyone had fun playing outside.

I think everyone had a great time.

Here are the rest of the pictures from the party, including a lot of good ones from all the great people who came.  Thanks so much to everyone - Owen and Mason had a blast, and it was definitely a memorable experience.

And, finally, the music video.  On Stage at Owen and Mason's 3rd Birthday (set to their current favorite song):

Happy Birthday, Guys!
