Family Night: Super Heroes and Princesses

Once again, Family Night was themed around gifts to the kids. They got fun new nighties from their Great-Grandma. Superman and Batman for the boys, and Disney Princess for Lauryn.

The boys’ new PJ’s have a cape that attaches with Velcro – how fun is that? Turns out, AMAZINGLY fun.

We decorated the kitchen with all the super hero and princess toys the kids dug out of the recesses of their toy box:

Then when Jonathan got home, he was assigned the role of The Villain. He captured the princess (Lauryn) and hid her away in his evil lair. (Coat closet.) She cried out for help (with giggles) and Batman and Superman took down The Villain with their superhero wrestling moves, then rescued the princess. (Who promptly asked to be captured again.)

Dylan spotted Spider-Man mac-n-cheese at Target earlier today. We just ate mac-n-cheese last night, but how could I say “no” to this on Super Hero family night?

They spent the rest of the night playing in the backyard. Ryan and Dylan running circles with their capes flying high behind them, Lauryn prancing around in her princess nightie and pink dress-up high heels.

When I brought them in to pose for a picture, Batman whacked the Princess in the head attempting to show off his big muscles.

That Batman. He just doesn’t know his own strength sometimes.
