To Infinity…And Beyond!

By July 10, 2014 Family, Party No Comments

I’m a little late with this post…ok…a lot late. But better late than never, right?! Story of my life.

My oldest son celebrated his 5th birthday way back on June 25 and I had intended to share his Toy Story themed party with all of you. Alas, life got in the way, yet again!

This was his first party with friends. Typically, we keep our birthday parties low-key and in order to keep things under control, limited to immediate family only (as in grandparents, aunts and uncles and first cousins). This year, in honor of the big number 5, we thought we’d forego the family party and bring in the kids! So we had a swimming party with 7 of his buddies from preschool. I was a little nervous about entertaining 7 preschoolers for two hours. Even more concerning, was pulling off a birthday party for 7 preschoolers and their parents, the day after Back Roads Vintage Market in Dysart. Much to my surprise, it was actually a pretty easy little party to pull together. The swimming was a big hit and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed watching all of the pint-sized bundles of energy in their complete innocent, unedited, genuine behavior. It was a total hoot!

So here it is in all it’s glory. I had a blast pulling everything together. And I must admit – it was a total Pinterest rip-off! Have I mentioned lately how much I love Pinterest? And hate Pinterest? All those ideas floating out there just waiting to be snatched up and made a reality! Enjoy the pics! 😉
