When my friends said the theme of their son’s first birthday party was gonna be Star Wars, I didn’t expect this:
We’ve been friends with John and Michelle for a number of years and John, while not a fanatic like me, has a strong strand of comics DNA in him. Star Wars too, evidently.
We went to their son Alex‘s first birthday today and the stated theme was a celebration of that long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
So we show up … and GOOD LORD JOHN’S GOT SOME AWESOME TOYS! And he’s not such a maniac that he keeps them hermetically sealed. Nope, there they were, all over the house for all to see, X-Wing, TIE Fighter, action figures, a salad from the Quinoa System, you name it.
And older sister Stella got into the act at the Lightsaber Building Station. Her training as a Jedi is now complete.
Here are the rest of the pix of the Star Wars Stuff. I just couldn’t contain myself. Best kid’s party I’ve ever been to that wasn’t my own son’s.
And instead of blowing out the candles … we blew up Alderaan! New birthday tradition!
Happy Birthday and May The Force Be With You, Alex!
