Soren’s 3rd Birthday Party: Astronaut Theme

We celebrated Soren’s 3rd birthday party in Beverly.  It was a lot of fun – 25 adults, 3 babies and 12 kids.  He wanted the “theme” to be Astronaut – as he had a really cute orange suit which he wore for Halloween that year.    We didn’t realize it, but it coincided with the anniversary of the Challenger explosion – January 28, 1986.

Everyone had a great time.  I made a bit ham dinner, buffet style then enjoyed cake & ice cream – even freeze dried stuff Astronauts take into space!  You’ll see outside some of the windows, there was snow on the ground, but not so much to cancel the party.

Plain cake – as I really have a problem with food coloring.

Great party with so many great friends!

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
