Cameron & Cole’s Ninjago Party

Back on August 31st (yes, I'm that far behind on my posts), we had Cameron & Cole's birthday party. It was a Ninjago themed party. The black ninja's name is Cole and Cameron enjoys the tv series so that's why we went with this theme.

I'm thankful to Mrs. Kyla who volunteered to make cupcakes for the party. It was one less thing for me to have to do.

The kids really love the hands on science education center where we started the day.

Then we watched a movie that described what the scientists actually do at LIGO.
