So I saw this post a few weeks ago, and immediately called Becca. You see, Kazie is pretty much the biggest Dora the Explorer fan ever invented, and I'm not even kidding. Whenever I have taken Kazie to the store, she FREAKS OUT every time she sees a Dora product. You would not believe how many Dora products can be found between the cereal aisle and the checkout stand at Walmart...I swear there were at least 754 items before I lost count. These stinking marketing folks have obviously never been to a grocery store with a young child (fan). It pretty much guarantees at least one major meltdown ultimately costing no less than $10.00 per child. Poor Ruthie gets a double-dose with her twins, who are also major Dora fans. How do you mamas do it? I really have no idea...
Well anyway, I completely went off-topic. My point is that I saw these plans for a rockin' Dora birthday party, and knew it had to be done. You see, it's Kazie's birthday and she is THREE!!! Crazy. So I'm off to Minersville to join the fiesta. Messie and Maddie were super nice and decided to join me. Woohoo!
After a whirlwind of planning, preparation and pre-party panicking (how many p's can YOU fit into one sentence?), the guests began to arrive. I had big plans to tell you all about the cool setup, and how it played out just like an episode of the Dora show. The kids all wore backpacks, and had a mission to help the birthday girl find the fiesta tent. They had a map to follow (just like the real Dora) and they even had to tell Swiper, "Swiper no swiping!!!" I fully intended to provide all the wonderful, exciting and fun-filled details...including the tragic balloon incident...but have you looked at the time?! I am pooped and had every intention of going to bed early tonight. Ya, so much for that!
Anyhoo, I fear I'm becoming incoherent. So without further ado, I leave you with this:
I'll admit, I could not resist the crack shot:
There may or may not be more to come, depending on whether I manage to drag myself out of bed tomorrow. :)
