The months leading up to a birthday are always a fun time around here. There's lots of talk about themes, cakes, and parties. With Mason's fifth birthday upon us, I found myself wondering what kind of party he would want this year...dinosaurs? sharks? pirates? But he was already completely clear on what he wanted, and didn't hesitate to let me know ...............It would be a Panda Party.

This love of all things Panda started last Christmas when he specifically asked Santa for a Panda Pillow pet. Well, Santa delivered, and the fascintation continued.

We had Mason's party on a gorgeous fall day, at our favorite playground...Kid's Konnection at the Tammany Trace. It's the only "boundless" playground in Louisiana, and we love it. I love that it's gated, shaded, and latex-free....Mason loves that it's huge and has a "bumpy slide". Here's a pic of one section of it...

This was the first party that wasn't at home, and let me tell you...I. LOVED. IT. No mess, no fuss, TONS for the kids to do, and WAAAY cheaper than a bounce house party. I may never go back...just sayin.

Five minutes into the party Maddie said "All done, walker"..parked it in the dirt, and left it there for the rest of the party. CRAZY proud of this girl.

Maddie got in on the panda love too...I loved how she kept making these two kiss.

We had a great time with family, and all of Mason's closest buddies. I loved it, and I loved seeing him so happy. Five definitely looks good on him.
