Gooser Party

We had Gooser's birthday party over the weekend--but I was too out of it to deal with the pictures, but have finally got around to it. Here we go...

It was a gymnastics party and the guy who ran the show was somewhat...difficult (he was dubbed the Gymnazi) but the kids managed to have a good time anyway! Don got yelled at a few times though...

First things first--here is the cake. Did you have any doubt it wasn't going to be Batman!?
Here's Gooser doing some warm-up stretching:
And Pickle sort of falling off the mat:
They did all sorts of things--obstacle courses, trampolines, swinging, jumping, climbing...Here's Gooser in the balance beam:
Pickle mainly did whatever she felt like doing! This was really fun--a giant pit filled with blocks of foam. The kids got to jump or swing into and play around. I think this was everyone's fave!

Then it was back to the party room for cake. Here's Gooser blowing out the candles:

Goodie bags!!
And, finally, back at home about to rip into the presents!
If you were guessing he got a lot of Batman stuff--you guessed right! And surprisingly--not a single duplicate!

Jennifer, you do go all out. An amazing party, I love the nick name Gymnazi, reminds me of a teacher we had at high school.

My kids always love those foam pits!~ My daughter was in gymnastics for years and years and that was the best part of the gym:)

I remember watching a movie when I was a kid about Nadia Comenici where they had a pit of foam blocks just like that. I always wanted to play in them. Sounds like a great party!
