Then... about a month before his birthday Ethan started talking non-stop about how he was going to turn 3 at his chick hicks party. I would gently remind him that he was having a circus party and tried to talk up how fun everything was going to be. He'd then agree with me that he was going to have a circus at his chick hicks party! So, I finally decided the circus was going to have to come to town some other time and just go with Ethan's wishes of turning 3 at his chick hicks party, after all, it's his birthday right?!
So here you go, pics from the chick hicks party that I really only had 1 day to put together because we got stuck in Portland the week of the party with our car needing a surprise transmission replacement. Maybe it was a good thing because it forced me to simplify :)
Nate built the race track a few weeks before the party and we had plans to paint it, oh well. I also printed pictures of some of the cars characters and laminated them to use for a modified cake walk. We played the cars theme song and the child on the picture that we drew when the music stopped got to pick a cars tattoo.
