He asked for a SWAT Team birthday party theme. The parents came through with flying colors.
Mr. Dad baked the cake! It was a fire engine mold from last year but he made it look like the SWAT truck. (Sorry, not a good photo)
Ms Mom made the pinata out of old Amazon boxes. She decorated the tables with light blue plastic tablecloths with a length of "POLICE LINE DO NOT CROSS" caution tape on top.

There were two little boys and their mom, Jesse's Mom, her boyfriend and Jesse's brother ... and the five of us. JUST right for a four year old. They played pin the badge on the police officer but mostly just ran around, chasing each other and the balloons, eating pizza and having fun.
The cake was delicious ... and the black went away pretty quickly.
He was a tired out little guy after the three hour party. Took a bath then just wanted to lay in front of "the campfire" (wall heater) and relax.
Yesterday, the boys went to a church carnival in honor of St. Patrick!
