My Little Man is 5!!!!!

While we were in NY Jaeden turned 5!! I cannot even believe that my little man is going to be starting kindergarten in a few weeks. He is so excited to be 5 now, he tells everyone.

This year Jaeden wanted to have a "friend" party with his preschool friends. So he asked for a Beach Party with Sharks. (He absolutely loves sharks). We did beach cupcakes, decorated with tiki masks, shells, star fish, sharks, and palm trees. Jaeden greeted all his friends with a lei as well. We played "Pass the Shark", Pin the Fin on the Shark, had Aloha sack races, and a fish pinata. All the kids had a great time.

Jaeden's actual birthday fell while we were in New York. And once again this year, Kris and Jen did not disappoint with an awesome cake. They gave Jaeden his favorite foods that day too. Pancakes for breakfast and fish for supper. What a day!

When we returned home from vacation we had a family get together as well. We were so blessed that so much of our family was able to make it. We all had a fabulous time catching up with each other. The kids and grown-ups both took their trys at sack races and three-legged races as well as the pinata. What a great day. Thank you to all of our family who helped us celebrate. We love you all very much!!!
