Zack's 4th birthday is coming up this next Tuesday so Michelle and Trevor hosted a party at Piter Piper Pizza today. Michelle told me Zack really rockets and currently wants to be an astronaut when he grows up. I saw this cool idea online for a rocket pack and thought it would be awesome for him. We don't drink 2liter bottles of soda so I just bought them and brought it to work for everyone to drink. I used some left over canvas for the straps and sewed them onto a piece of cardboard to make a base for the 'rockets'. I then used a hot glue gun to glue the 'flames' cut from felt into the opening of the silver spray painted 2liters. I am a little worried about the quality of construction and am curious if it holds up to 4 year old, Zack's, highly active and rough life style! I used Little Brian as my model and he was more than accommodating (might have to make them some jet packs too!). We also got him a Rocket Car project (its ages 8+ so mom and dad will have to help him) and a Spiderman Shirt. Once the boys heard it was going to be Zack's birthday it was all they could talk about. He is going to be 4? They would ask me. It was pretty cute.

His FAVORITE toy of the day!! A guitar from his mom and dad! After he opened it he just wanted to play with it. He opened another present and said, "OH its my favorite game! Now can I play with the guitar?" LOL
Zack is SO good about saying thank you and giving out hugs : )
