Ninja Birthday

Best. Birthday. Ever.

On Friday, Owen turned four. This fact still amazes me but that's not the point. The simple fact is that Owen had an amazing birthday.

After a lot of work on Friday morning, I took the afternoon off. Beth and I picked Owen up from school a few minutes early and took him to Chipotle, which he adores and calls The Chip Restaurant. We had lunch then dashed to the local theater where Star Wars: The Phantom Menace just opened in 3D. The boy loves him some Star Wars. His mind was blown. Then we hung out, played for a little while, and the four of us went to his absolute favorite restaurant for dinner.

Saturday was low-key but Sunday was anything but. It was his birthday party day. Maybe four or five months ago, Beth stumbled onto a perfect birthday party deal. At least we thought it was perfect but didn't have any way to really tell. It was a Groupon for a ninja birthday party. What we got was nothing short of perfect. For an hour, a fantastic karate instructor walked kids through an assortment of activities after which pizza was served. The birthday cake - Batman escaping from his Batcave - was served which Owen was allowed to cut with a giant ninja sword. And after that, everyone got to break boards.

I cannot tell you how perfect the party was. And I need to make one thing clear - I had little to do with this. Beth did all the heavy lifting. The place was perfect, the instructors were astoundingly awesome, and the kids had the most fantastic time ever.

I am confident that no four year old has ever had a better party. Of course I'm also confident that there's no more awesome four year old than Owen. I might be a little bias but I know that to be the truth.

Beats the heck out of that old, worn-out party idea of the clown with the balloon animals. Well done, mom and dad!
