Reed's 4th Birthday Party!

This past weekend was Reed's dinosaur party! It has been all he's talked about for weeks! I was so excited to put such a fun party together for him, even when I was 37 weeks pregnant, and it was 100 degrees outside!

Sugar cookies with cocoa powder footprints!
Dino chicken nuggets are for meat eaters only!
Pb & J dino sandwiches are for plant eaters only!
Excavate the fossils out of the jello!
Don't be scared! That's just a watermelon t Rex! This melon actually grew in the rocks under Reed's swingset. He checked on it everyday and occasionally kissed it. It weighed 33lbs!
This is officially the coolest dino/volcano cake ever, made by my Aunt Candie.
It even smoked!
Reed loved everything!

These were the party favors I made...dino eggs!
Mix 1 cup coffee grounds, 1 cup flour, 1/4th cup sand, and 1/2 cup salt. Add water till you get to a good molding consistency (about 3/4th cup). Roll mixture around a plastic dinosaur. Bake 20-30 minutes at 175 degrees.
Now you can smash them open with a hammer and pull out the dino!
