Then they headed into the kitchen to eat dinner.
Christian was so excited! He had been counting down to this big event for weeks.
Natalie and McKenna are so cute. There is a huge age difference between them and yet they are such sweet friends! Natalie helped McKenna and watched out for her all night.
It was extra special to have Abby and Emma there to celebrate Christian's birthday with us.
The whole gang.
Everyone headed into the living room after dinner to hear the instructions for the treasure hunt.
We kicked things off with the "mummy wrap." There was a clue hidden inside one of the rolls of toilet paper and the kids had to wrap the mummy until they found the clue.
Christian got totally covered so.....
Emma became the second mummy!
Finally Wyatt found the clue and Christian busted out of his mummy wrap to head off to the archaeological dig.
Time to find some more gold coins and rescue the trapped paratroopers from the tree. Abby took this station pretty seriously.
When they found it they were pretty disturbed to find out that the banquet hall was serving up Eye ball soup (grapes in water), Money Brain Salad (cold spagetti noodles with vegetable oil on them) and Snake Guts (jello). Each friend had to find a gold coin in each bowl. It was slimmy and gross! Perfect for this six year old.
It was just a little messy!
Off to crocodile lake to find some more clues!
