Our guest arrived at Brother's Landing (the name of our adventure's club - in honor of the fact that Ben has 5 younger brothers and this is their family home).
We had our guests walk down the long drive along the side of the house to enter the backyard where the party was.
The original plan was to make this the tiki bar, but the roof ended up too low, so instead it became a great photo booth!
Here is the backyard before it got dark, as some of our first guests arrived.
And then again after it got dark and the lights did their magic!
We took the old playhouse and turned it into a jungle shack! Inside we hooked up some speakers to play a list of jungle sound effects.
Here is the birthday boy and myself all ready to party!
In the year yard we offered croquet and a shooting range for our guest to amuse themselves with. Below is a picture of the shooting range - it had playing cards clothes-pinned to a line for guest to shoot air soft guns at.
My cousin and his wife were awesome at this!
This was the most perfect backyard, it came complete with a tree house. We provided the barrel...
Our guests came in some great adventure gear!
Maybe it wasn't the best idea to let Ben cut the cake!
I was so bummed when I realized it was already late and our friends would be leaving, the party was so much fun I wanted it to keep going! Ben was a very happy guy, and had a rollicking good time!
