The highlight of the party was playing silly string and confetti egg war. The kids had a great time making a total mess of the yard and themselves with the confetti eggs and silly string.
The kids also had fun breaking the pinata that was filled with pennies, nickels, dimes and high bouncing balls.
It is wonderful that Tom Sawyer planned the activities for the party, because I needed all of my energy to figure out a tasty kid-friendly menu that would work around Tom Sawyer's complicated diet. We settled on organic, nitrite-free hot dogs, french fries and blackberries for dinner and organic sausages, strawberries, and hash browns for breakfast. The cake was the most difficult part. However, I found a bakery that made us a vegan (he's allergic to dairy and eggs), gluten-free lemon cake. The cake didn't even have any rice flour in it, which is good since he's allergic to rice as well as gluten. To my surprise, it was delicious and everyone liked it.
Happy Birthday, my sweet boy!
