I was hoping that they’d all want to dress up as Avengers this year. Wouldn’t that be cute? I could picture each of my six kids as one of the characters. But, no, for a variety of reasons they turned it down.
Except one. FishBoy10 decided to be Hawkeye. Of course, he decided this about 2 hours before  we were to head to Legoland for their dress-up party.
Seriously, this was one of the easiest costumes I’ve ever put together – and it met with rave reviews as we walked through the amusement park Saturday night. It might not be the Mother of the Year award, but I was pretty proud of myself.
We bought some very average items at Walmart that afternoon. If I had had more time, I probably could have found much of it at home already. You’ll need:
