I’ve been running late on blog posting lately, I know, but here’s a recent one: Ben’s 11th Birthday Party. We had a Percy Jackson theme. We usually have beautiful weather for his birthday, but with the Polar Vortex and all, we had a cold, rainy day. So we changed a few things up and moved the excitement inside. (I was going to link to the party idea page we pulled this from, but I’m not sure where the original came from. It looks like everyone’s using the same idea. Whoever you are out there, many thanks!)

Reading the clue that will take them to Poseidon’s Sea
Reading the clue that will take them to the Underworld.
The guard at the River Styx says YOU SHALL NOT PASS. Mixing my fandoms? Oh yes.

It took a lot of tries. My poor front door.
Girls sword fighting. Who could ask for more?
The Underworld is my laundry room, of course.

More sword fighting!

Ben loves his birthday….
