A Go, Dog! Go!-themed birthday party

After celebrating our daughter's first birthday a A Very Hungry Caterpillar-themed party, we kept it pretty simple this year — just a few tots and their parents, some light fare, and a couple of simple activities. Plus, I was nine months pregnant and just didn't have the energy to go too crazy. I liked using a book theme last year, so we went with another book. This year, it was Go, Dog. Go!, one of Penny's favorites.

A Very Hungry first birthday party!

We hosted our son's first birthday party in August 2012. We were so excited to have an outdoor party, complete with Slip 'n' Slide, a kiddie pool, golf toss, and a barbecue. The day of the party, we began setting up at 10 AM and realized we were in for a scorcher of a day, since the temperature was already in the 90s and climbing.

It's on like… a Donkey Kong-themed birthday party!

With three young children that I adore making a fuss for, party planning has become one of my favorite things. I l-o-v-e a theme and finding ways to creatively interpret it. So when my own "not so little/little guy" approached me with his request to host a Donkey Kong-themed party, I was up to the challenge!
