Birthday 5.0

Last year, O was all about the dinos. This year... Sharks!

We scaled things back a wee bit this year. We had heaps going on and I found last year that for all of the things I planned and made by hand, a couple key games and treats were plenty.  

We had Pin the Fin on the shark instead of the dino egg hunt. And we used a store-bought pinata instead of making one. A variety of snacks... pizza... fish cupcakes... and shark (+ whale + dolphin) water guns in the goodie bags - really, what more could a kid want? A rousing success according to the celebrated, which is what matters.

Happy Birthday, O!

PS. Rather poor pictures I admit - but all I had was the phone since our camera went missing for the weekend. Thank goodness I don't blog for a living. I do wish I had more shots of the goodie bags, which I was pretty jazzed about: shark squirt gun, shark bath squirter, stickers, ocean coloring page, shark bubbles, and a pencil. I guess I should have made one for me...

PPS. Oliver has his birthday parties (locations and themes) planned out for the next 4 years. Etta's too probably. Ask him about it - it's good stuff.

Lunch lover

Now that he's at day camp, we need to pack O a lunch and 2 snacks daily. I've always been a lunch lover myself and it turns out the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. He's all about the lunch, the boxes, the food, the fun... I'm due for a real post and some photos! Coming soon I think!

Adventure Camp!

He's thrilled to be graduating from preschool! And although he thought he was starting Kindergarten after graduation, he is still pretty excited for adventure day camp. This week, Science Week!

 I'll be a wreck when I have to send him to Kindergarten. Just sayin
