Logan's Dinosaur Party

Warning: This is a picture-heavy post!

Logan had his 5th birthday party this past Sunday, over a week after his actual birthday which really confused him, at the Dallas Museum of Nature and Science. It was dinosaur themed and the most expensive party he has ever had, but not completely crazy for what we got and the amount of people we were able to invite. But he had definite ideas of what he wanted to do this year and we figured 5 is a big milestone so we went for it. I am so glad we did. It was a great party and we had a great turnout. He has been helping me plan this party for a couple months now, surfing Pinterest with me and picking all his partyware out. It's been fun for him to be involved this year and I love how opinionated he is (in this case, at least).

His dinosaur cake, he wanted it brown with dinosaur eggs (seen on Pinterest).

He saw these on Pinterest and had to have them...Bugles as dino toenails.
These were a Pinterest find as well...pretzels, mini marshmallows, and almond bark.
These were on sale at Sprouts, so why not?
Logan wanted to have strawberries
We snagged a family picture before the party got started
All the kids got foam dinosaur masks to wear/take home. They were hit!
The museum provided a party host and she talked to the kids about dinosaurs and was very interactive and engaging!
All the kids got to make their own fossil imprints
And dig in their dino dig (which was a dusty mess)

After the party, we still had some time before the museum closed so several of us stayed and let the kids play. I love the Dallas Science Museum (more than the Fort Worth one), I wish we could have stayed longer. They are having a Magic School Bus exhibit soon and Logan LOVES that show, so we will be going back.

After the museum closed, my dad took our immediate family and a couple close family friends out to dinner at La Calle Doce in Oak Cliff. It was a perfect night to sit outside and the food was excellent. Logan was exhausted, though, and didn't want to eat. He was in a pretty foul mood and later we discovered he had a fever, which explained a lot. So in these pictures he's not feeling so great.

It was a wonderful birthday and we were all exhausted by the end of it. Logan fell asleep on the way home and then went to bed quickly once we were home. I hope he remembers this birthday for a long, long time. I know it was probably my favorite one of his so far.
