The weekend after O Boy got back from his visit to the real Hunley, we had a Hunley/submarine/scuba diver birthday party for him. He worked with me to design and build the cardboard Hunley and helped pick out and set up the activities. It was fun working on this party with him!
|Everyone got to put their sub up in the "ocean" and then try to put their diver on it. Or somewhere. It was sort of a very casual and no-real-rules version of pin-the-tail on the donkey. Here is O Boy's laughing reaction to where his diver ended up.|
|BB ended up waaaaaaaay out in the deep ocean.|
|Mr. T thought he would ham it up a bit by aiming for the CROWD. That got some good laughs.|
|And then he headed for the deepest ocean as well.|
|His dive belt was heavy!|
|I don't think that's usually how this is worn...|
|Hefting the dive belt|
|Of course we had a submarine cake!|
|Black frosting makes for some silly pictures.|
|One of his many special presents was a bag made for him by a friend's mom with a real picture of the Hunley on it!|
|A cool pop up card with a submarine on it made by BB.|
|Learning about hurricanes with CM.|
This is O Boy's quick video tour of the Hunley. We didn't think to do this until birthday friends had already started arriving, so it's a bit rushed.
