Jacob's 3rd Birthday Party - Cars!

A couple of weeks ago, on Jacob's actual birthday, we celebrated with a Cars party. A couple months before the party, when Cars 2 came out, I asked him what kind of party he wanted, and he said Cars. Thing is, the week of his party he had become utterly obsessed with Captain Hook and pirates. So, when I asked him again what kind of party he wanted, he said...Pirates! Ugh. But despite being a Cars party, he still loved it!

For his special day, we got Jacob a Cars jumper. He absolutely loves these things. Anytime he sees one he has to go in it and jump to his heart's desire. But, trying to get him out was always a hassle. So, we got one he could jump in all day long. And he did, as soon as the jumper arrived, Jacob jumped right in. It was also a pool party, so the kids had a great time. Well, I think so, at least. Favors were Cars paper lunch bags filled with candy, a water gun, a Cars Pez dispenser, Cars sticker, and Cars bubbles. The kids' eyes were buggin' when they saw the bag was stuffed.

For dinner, we served up Hawaiian food. Chicken Katsu, BBQ beef, macaroni salad, green salad, and white rice. we ordered it from a local place and it was a big hit. The cake was from Sam's Club and was really moist and delicious...and cheap!

We all had a 'rip racing' good time! And I know Jacob had a fun and memorable birthday. He's still talking about it!
