My Husband Rocks ♥ #6

It's Friday and that means..... Katy Lin's "My Husband Rocks" is jamming today! And of course my hubby ROCKS! So let me share a little tid-bit from awhile back....

For those of you who have kids, you know the total nightmare planning a child's birthday party can be right? I mean, I love throwing parties...sort of...well, okay...I LOVE my kids and want them to have amazing birthdays, but honestly the party planning thing is NOT on my list of favorite things to do. The older they get, teenage years, it's a little easier and funner (is that a word?)....anyway, my little Luke Skywalker was turning 6 awhile back and I was DREADING the party thing....

What do you do for a 6 year old BOY party....all the boys are rough-n-tumble type boys! They're adorable though...but need to be kept outside or caged up. I was putting it off, the date was getting closer...putting off....and then Superman, yes, my hubby stepped in. {Sighhhh}

Here's what this man did...

1. Planned an outdoor adventure GUY's Party!
2. Only sons and fathers allowed
3. Bring your tents
4. Sleeping bags
5. He planned and cooked ALL the food. BBQ hot dogs & steak, baked beans, plenty of munchies to go around.
6. Ice chests full of Capri-Suns
7. Warrior bandannas made out of camo print for each boy
8. Took them on a Night Snipe Hunt and Treasure hunt
9. S'mores! Yes, S'mores too!
9. One of the dad's actually read them a book in the fort before bed!
10. Made breakfast - pancakes, bacon, sausage & eggs OUTSIDE on the grill the next morning
11. Cleaned up and everyone out of our backyard by 8 am

HELLO! Amazing? Yes! Absolutely ROCKIN'! I ♥ that man!!

Wow! How amazing that he did all that for you and his son. That does rock! That will probably be one of your son's favorite birthday memories. So cool.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
