can I have the EXACT same birthday party when I turn 75?

We had the pleasure of attending Krispiy Kreme's 75th birthday party this weekend.  I was so impressed with all they provided for such a community celebration and we had a great time.  Here are some of the things we got to do.

First, eat the most delicious, melt-in-your-mouth doughnuts known to man. Behold:

Second, we got to cross something off my bucket list. We went up in a hot air balloon.  It was really exciting! The kids did great and weren't too scared despite the loud noise, heat, and unstable floor.

This picture cracks me up because if you look closely you can see both kids with their ears covered.

Third, the kids got to play in the bounce houses. Always a win when you get the jumpies out.

Fourth, we played some good 'ole carnival games like ring toss and try to knock the stack of cans down.  It can surprise you how much enjoyment simple things like this can bring.

Fifth, we chose balloon animals and got faces painted.  Josh chose a sword balloon and pirate face.  Jules chose a cat balloon and a rainbow with clouds painted on her face.

Sixth, we let Julianna and Joshua ride the swings and skipped the merry-go-round because the lines were getting pretty terrible.

Like I said, KK really went all out for their birthday celebration.  The town erected a plaque in the location of the original store that opened 75 years ago.  There were people giving away swag all over the place.  We got free drinks, KK prints to frame, t-shirts, temporary tattoos, ice cream sandwiches, and of course free doughnuts.

I have a lot of pride for my hometown and it only helps when they throw parties like this.  Thank you, Krispy Kreme! Now the question is, would you mind hosting my 75th birthday party in a few years?
