My Nationosaurus turned 5 this week, and we celebrated his birthday for the 5th year in a row---a day early---on the 4th of July. We always have a big party at my moms pool and invite all our friends to swim all afternoon & evening.
I guess I was too busy swimming to remember to take pictures, I snagged some, but you'll just have to imagine the 6 families & 17 kids that were there. Oh and the adorable little dino goodie bags I made, the sign I hung, and the green decor that got rained out. Thankfully, Sarah caught a few I didn't.
The cake is by my cake lady.
My mom "made" Nation the coolest gift---she collected all types of odds & ends [that he's always so fascinated by in her garage]. He's been constructing everyday since he got it! He's such a builder.
Naturally, now that he's 5, we're in the Lego Phase, ha! First sets here.
Another friend of ours made Nation these awesome "Heart Seeds'" jars for a new "system" we're trying with Nation...more on that later.
And that's how I know I threw him a great party---this was around 7pm I think.
Solomon & Nation played so long and hard that day too. They both crashed before 5pm dinner and didn't wake up until it was nearly 9 and we were headed home. They missed cake, but promptly reminded me upon waking.
