My sister lives in Washington, D.C.,
but she has been in Utah for the past 3 months on a temporary work assignment.
Last year she started a tradition of throwing an annual birthday party for all of her nieces and nephews (remember the epic appearance of George and Martha Washington?),
so she decided to take advantage of the time she was in Utah and, with the help of my mom and my other sister, threw the kids a dinosaur-themed birthday party this year!
The kids had a fabulous time building dinosaur dioramas,
decorating paleontologist hats,
excavating for dinosaur bones in a giant dirt mound,
exploding water balloons,
whacking a dinosaur pinata to pieces,
and eating lots of fun, cute dinosaur-themed food!
They topped it all off with some pretty awesome dinosaur favors and some Dinosaur Train.
We are so blessed to be part of such a wonderful, caring family
and to have the ability to spend time with them!
