Birthday fun

Today is my nephew Tyler's birthday party. He is 5!! F*I*V*E! I cant believe he is that old. It seems like yesterday he was a little guy crab walking around.

I have been trying to figure out what to get him for his birthday. It should be easy... he loves games, cars, spongebob square pants, crafts... all kinds of things. Problem is he has everything and there is no way of knowing if its a repeat. I was out grocery shopping yesterday and they had all their summer fun toys on clearance for 90% off. I bought him a TON of stuff on the cheap! Sidewalk chalk, bubbles, paddleball, ball catchers, foam darts, a foam pellet type gun... all kinds of fun. I bought a 49 cent bucket and tossed everything in it...


Then I made a little taggie with some acrylic stamps and stuff from my scrap bag. I tied it to the bucket... here is a close up


The whole present cost me $6 for everything. He loved it! and had a SUPER birthday
