Jared's 5th Birthday Party

Jared's 5th birthday was a blast. 
He wanted a shark themed party and we seriously put it all together THAT MORNING and had a ton of help from our neighbor and friend Jen, otherwise, it would not have been done. 

She came up with this shark mouth archway at the entry to the backyard and it turned out pretty cool. At least Jared loved it, he still talks about it to this day. 

I was able to find everything I needed at a local party store and didn't have to spend a ton. 

We filled up a kiddy pool with $1 inflatable sharks and just let the kids play until it was time for cake and  popsicles and presents. I didn't get a picture of the cake but my sister in law Angela made it to order and it was ADORABLE. He told her he wanted a shark biting a boat and that's exactly what she made! 
I really need to have someone else take pictures at the next party because I got so busy that I forgot! 

We love our neighborhood, the boys have so many little friends to play with so we had Jared's first friend only party! He specifically told us that no girls were allowed at his party, even Grandma was told she couldn't come! (she did anyways and he was super glad)
His cousins Ryker and Spencer came even though it was their naptime and he was so happy to have them there. 

They all had so much fun!

How old are you Jared??
Jared got this cool new bike and helmet..right after I took these pictures he crashed and scraped up his naked little back and wouldn't get back on the bike. We tried everything to get him to try again but he just wanted to stick to his old bike. We ended up taking it back and exchanging it for Legos!

Our baby starts Kindergarten in 2 weeks!!! We are all so excited!
