Has it already been 10 years since I became a mother? I really just can’t believe it, but it’s true!
Ethan turned 10 on January 31st and it’s such a heartwarming feeling to see how much he has grown…especially since Facebook “reminds” us of our memories from years ago on such and such a date.
This year, we had initially planned to have a simple football themed party at home but earlier in January, he attended a laser tag birthday party and got hooked. So we decided to have a small gathering at Laser Warzone in Gurney Plaza instead (otherwise he would be playing pretend laser tag all around the house and I can’t have that!)
I incorporated the original football theme into this laser tag venue celebration. Obviously Ethan’s favorite soccer team played a huge role in the theme, food and party pack decor.
The kids just could not wait to get down to laser tag business.
They had 4 laser tag games in total and we played 2 solo games and 2 team games. Of course the cake cutting and food was done right before the last game, so that the kids could “refuel”.
Laser Tag parties = good workout for the kids with good clean fun (read: they sleep better at night); Also, minimal preparation for the party and the following day Ethan said his friends commented that it was the best birthday party ever! Guess it was a resounding success!
After the party, we did some Chinese New Year shopping and ended up having dinner at Chili’s. They still gave a free dessert for the birthday boy, so Ethan got his song and dessert too!
