Noah's 5th Birthday Party

Beach Theme
The kids wore swimsuits (we cranked the heat)
Beach Boys playing in the backgound
Noah handed out Lei's to all his guests as they arrived

Noah loves art projects so we painted seashells
(messier than I thought, but washable)
We played Pin the Fin on the Shark
We played "Shark Attack" in a roomful of ocean blue balloons
We also played Limbo and Wipeout
Limbo was hysterical - their faces!!!
(Paul was laughing so hard he couldn't hold the limbo stick)

Noah opened presents
Sharks, cars, dinosaurs, transformers, art projects.
He loved it all
We ate  Goldfish and "Ocean Cupcakes" (i.e. blue jello topped with whipped cream and a swedish fish).
Yeah, I ate one.  And it tasted about as good as it looks - but the kids loved'em.
Can you tell?
Noah loved handing out the goody bags at the end
Alex loved it all - and keeps reminding me that her birthday is in February.

Overall - it was chaos
But the good kind - fun chaos.
Wish I had more pictures of the kids in action but I was busy trying to manage all that chaos.

So glad it's over
But totally worth it
Noah loved every minute.
