Man vrs. Wild Birthday Adventure!

September 2, 2010

Rodrigo is turning 10, he is very specific about what he wants!  His favorite show is Man vrs Wild and he watches it with his dad.

He is passionate about the outdoors, he likes to go camping,  fishing and enjoys aquatic sports and basketball and soccer.

In the show, Man vrs Wild, Bear Grylls,  teaches how to survive in the worst of situations and goes to the most exotic places.

Edward Michael Grylls, nicknamed “Bear”, (born 7 June 1974) is a British adventurer, writer and tv presenter. He is best known for his television series Man vs. Wild in the United States, although this show was originally called Born Survivor in Britain. He is the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest, doing so at age 23. In July 2009, Grylls was appointed the youngest ever Chief Scout at the age of 35. (Information from Wikipedia)

Now, back to our Child-Wild and his party… Here he is, kayaking at the Florida Keys with his lil sister.

OK so an adventure and fun Man vrs Wild Party it is!! First, the invitation….Man vrs Wild with Rodrigo .

The kids began to arrive at a local park with a lake on the background and plenty of space to run around and for our wild relay/adventure!

Instructions for safety came first at this party!

In teams and getting ready for a sack race!

Like Bear Grylls, our group of adventurers had to go under caves, pass crawling down bridges, sac race, throw knock down animals (cardboard figurines) , go down a zip line and eat animal, eyes, ants and even baboo poop to survive the challenge! They got divided in teams so they cheered for their team to go faster!

The cake of course was a delicious snake by Lineth. The detail in the cake was amazing, even the flies were edible. Rodrigo was specific in what he wanted: ” A  Snake with a bloody knife,  because Bear kills his own food to survive! ”  (Blood and all, I still think the snake is so adorable!)

I will have to say that the hit of this party was the zip line at the end of our relay…
