Shark Party!

Per request, here are photos of my son’s 5th birthday party! (JK no one asked to see them, so thank you for letting me share them with you!) My son, who turns 5 in nine days (who is counting?) celebrated his birthday with friends from school this past weekend up in Pound Ridge. Dedicated to sharks and the ocean (perhaps he will take after my brother), the party was shark centric. Here are the pictures!

 

Eeks, there is a shark in the grass!

The hors doevres. The food was so beyond delicious and a perfect blend of kids and adults sandwiches and salads. And of course, I was too busy and preoccupied to take a single photo....but believe me, it was delicious.

A magician performed for an hour. Which was AWESOME for adults to be child-less for a full 60 minutes. And unbelievable -- this guy captured the kids attention for the whole time. No wiggling or moving around. Just pure laughing and enjoyment. Success!

Don't do this at home (bad for environment and animals), but we released the balloons into the sky. It was so pretty.
