Jax’s 6th Birthday: More Than Meets The Eye

This year, when Jax turned six, he didn’t just turn six.  He transformed.

He wanted a Transformer birthday party, and even though we didn’t do the usual go-big-or-go-home friend party because his big gift was a trip to NYC with Dad, I couldn’t resist playing on his love for all things Optimus Prime and Rescue Bots to give him a small family party that was more than meets the eye.

His Auntie Jenny gave him an Optimus Prime costume for his gift, and with a little help from blue rock candy Energon, he was powered up and energized to have a fantastic birthday!

Auntie Amanda and Uncle Chris came up for the day and, as usual, they got down into the trenches for some Autobots vs. Megatron action.

Then we played Pin The Autobot Shield on Optimus, and even Little H got in the game!

And finally, we played an intense few games of Kick The Can Transformers-style, which is basically  good guys protecting the All Spark (which is a sort of Tranformers treasure of some kind–at least that’s what I’m told) from invading Decepticons in an epic battle of good vs. evil.  Basically, I was excited to have a chance to play Kick The Can with my kids and this was as good an excuse as any.  Jax was excited to defend humanity as all good Transformers do.

My boy is six!  His presence in my life is more than I could have ever asked for; he is such a special boy.  This year is going to hold so many new adventures for us all!
