Maddox and Ryder’s Construction Bash!! The Details!!

One of the great things about having 2 boys whose birthdays are 2 days apart is….we can throw a joint birthday party!!  We celebrated Maddox and Ryder’s Birthday yesterday with a Construction Party!!  Their birthdays are not until next weekend but we wanted to have their party early so that we could spend more time with just them on their birthday!! Ryder’s is June 16th, Father’s Day is June 17th and Maddox’s Birthday is June 18th!!  Whewww!!!

My brother in law has a grading business so I knew that his equipment would make for a perfect party.  Maddox is REALLY into dump trucks, backhoes, bulldozers, loaders…and all that stuff.  He gets so excited to get to ride on Uncle Kev’s tractor!!

There were big orange barrels all the way up the driveway!! Then all the equipment was sitting out!!

Thankfully we rented a tent.  The weather called for a 30% chance of rain and it drizzled about 30% of the party time!

We covered the kids table in old blue prints and had 2 buckets of tractor and dump truck crayons for them to color with on the blue prints!!

The food wasn’t out when I took my pictures.  We served hot dogs, potato salad, fruit and chips!!  Along with all the sweets and goodies on the cake table!

I was probably most excited about this!! A skid Loader bounce house!!!  I went thru a lot to get this thing here and then it had to be set up in the building b/c of the rain.  I think the kids enjoyed it though!!

The lunch bags contained prepackaged PB&J’s, cheese and cracker snack, gummies in the shapes of tools, a dump truck chocolate sucker and a little CAT toy!! 

Let me just say my family had a HUGE part in helping me pull this party off!!  I could not have done it without their help!! They are amazing and I can’t thank them enough!!!

More party post to come!!!

Did you make your own printables? I would love to purchase something similar. I love the black and white chevron!
