I want a cowboy party!
I want a Star Wars party!
I want a baseball party!
And that was in the span of about five minutes. Let it be known that five year olds have a hard time making choices even with the best choice is clear. (Picture this: Darth Vader pitching to Han Solo who's riding a horse. Awesome!)
So rather than be ruled by a short attention span, we found that the Olympics made for a great theme. (When I say, "we" I obviously am not including myself.)
So... foot races, soccer, basketball (against my wishes), shotput, and discus. No (major) injuries and everyone won a medal. Plus, there were cupcakes.
I bet even the fourth place sprinters in London would smile if they got cupcakes.
