Pella Birthday Fun

Saturday evening Heather and I headed to Pella for the combined birthday party for Nathan and Aaron. It was a music and baseball themed party, complete with Cracker-Jacks and music themed cakes!
Heather found these sweet sunglasses for Nathan to wear at the party.
I also brought some sharpies to make some party themed tattoo's. Nathan got a guitar on his arm...
...and Aaron got a baseball, complete with flames!
Nathan shows off his tattoo while Aaron and Shay smile for the camera before the party gets under way!
We started off with opening some gifts.
Heather found a sweet deal on Etsy: super hero cape, cuffs and mask. We had it customized with a rocket and "N"s on the cuffs!
Nathan loved them! What a little super hero!
...I made him a rocket ship to go along with his rocket cape.
Nathan was ready to blast off with his wild imagination!
Aaron checked out the rocket..."This door is just my size!"
Nathan got this sweet card that expands into a guitar and plays rock 'n roll music...with out missing a beat, he knew how to hold the guitar and strum the strings!
Who is this caped masked man?
...we may never know.
Aaron's turn to open his gifts.
Nathan is quick to help his little brother
Aaron makes a deal with Tom, "I'll trade you one of my drums for that blackberry!"
After presents we had some food and some cake. Here is Aaron's cake.
...and Nathan's cake. Awesome job Shay on the cake making!
While we were finishing our food, Nathan decided to play us all a song.
This was an original song entitled "Cubbie".
The Pella VL's pose for a family picture before Aaron digs into his cake.
Aaron goes head first into his drum cake!
Mom gives a smile while Dad show Aaron how to take a big bite!
Next it was time for Nathan's cake and blow out his candle.
No smiles for this tough guy...
As we cleaned up the party and headed back to Chad and Shay's house, we got a picture with the little birthday boy!
...and the tough birthday boy!
Nathan's rocket ship landed in his room...ready for an adventure!

We had a great time celebrating these two little guys. Chad and Shay did a great job throwing the birthday party.

You two are so incredibly awesome! Thank you so much for the added decorations and rockin' gifts! Nathan slept in his rocket for nap today :) The band started in full swing this morning!
