How is it possible that my little man is 6 already? It was his birthday on 28th April and arranging his party as well as my busy schedule was a bit of a challenge, to say the least.
You may well laugh but my son does not enjoy having his facepainted, hates dancing and cheesy songs, and is not into organised sports parties. So it took a lot of deliberating over what he would like for his party.
In the end, he opted for a Lego themed party with Superhero fancy dress.
I bought a big bundle of build your own Lego cars, made a racing track with the help of my wonderful dad, made Lego chocolate and Lego jelly and Lego head cake pops and made a' face in the hole' Lego man. We hired out the Oakley Centre in Crewe.

The week before, I realised I hadn't thought about the cake so contacted Cakey Cakey and gave her the mammoth task of making a Lego cake. The result was phenomenal and I was so thrilled when I collected it. Luke's face was a picture when he saw his cake for the first time.

As parties go, there were no tears (well not many) and all the children enjoyed themselves. Luke was spoilt rotten and we need to build another extension to home all his new toys.

Thank goodness birthdays only come once a year!
