Star Wars Birthday Party

Kaylee's friend had a birthday party with a Star Wars theme. It was awesome.
I wish I had taken pictures of the invitations. They were based on the opening title sequence from the original Star Wars. Kaylee and friends were invited to attend Jedi Training.
Foam pool toys were lightsabers. 
Padawans trained with their light sabers by popping bubbles . . .

. . . so they could later defeat Darth Vader (as a piñata) in battle.
The best thing I didn't get a picture of was a classic. They had the Padawans use their Jedi mind powers to open the garage door. The kiddos concentrated sooooo hard that I'm convinced they actually did use the Force. I applaud Mom and Dad (aka Darth Mom and Daddy Wan Kenobi) for the awesome effort. It really was a blast. (And not just for me, but for the kiddos too.)

No, the BEST part was when I wore the defeated Dart Piñata's head like a hat.

Or Darth. Whatever.
