You're One in a Minion

Olive and I were strolling the party aisles at Wal-Mart weeks ago and she spotted Minion party products.  She gasped and said, "Daddy would LOVE those!!"  So we threw him a minion party for his 36th birthday.  They love watching Despicable Me together and I knew he'd get a kick out of it.

We told Kevin he was One in Minion and he loved it :)

We picked up our party supplies at Wal-Mart and Target and tried to do some fun things for all the kids.  They were easy to find with Despicable Me 3 being so popular right now.

We headed to Southern Indiana to see our family for the weekend and had to make a firework pit stop.  Kevin has always done fireworks on his birthday since it's just a few days after the 4th.  He stocked up with Olive's help and we were back on the road.

The weather was GORGEOUS and the kids were so happy to play outside.

Olive stayed up late to help bake the birthday cake with Kevin's mom.

We also did some plant shopping for our yard and for Kevin's office.  We came home with this beautiful Crepe Myrtle and Kevin got some new succulents.

 Party time!!

Looks like Fletcher loves fireworks just as much as his dad :)

We celebrated Kevin's birthday with my family and he had tons of little helpers to watch him open gifts :)  The cousins had a great time playing together and Kevin loved all of his new tools and gifts.

We headed home and had a birthday fiesta for him on his actual birthday.  Olive loved helping me chop veggies.  She's been asking to help out more and more lately so I am trying to be better about teaching her how to do things with me.

I was extra proud of Kevin's birthday cake this year.  It's from scratch and it's his grandma's recipe.  It turned out perfect - look at those even layers!!

We had a great time celebrating our One in a Minion Guy!!

Have you seen Despicable Me 3 yet?


  1. Aw, this is too cute!!!

    The girls and I just watched Despicable Me on the airplane flight back home this trip and we all loved it! I know Jim will adore it, so we definitely need to watch it again with him soon!

  2. Despicable Me is a favorite in our house. I'm hoping to take Cam to see the 3rd one this weekend. Such a fun idea!! Looks like tons of fun!

  3. Oh that party theme was just the cutest friend. I love seeing Olive so at home in the kitchen and those layers on that cake are nothing short of perfection. I am seriously impressed girl. Have an amazing weekend sweet friend.

  4. Way to go girl! You are a pro at making your loved ones feel special! And that cake is perfection!!
