I can hardly believe it, but Nixin is already 5 years old! We celebrated with an "Under the Sea" theme, chosen by the always creative Nixin.
His friends came over to help us celebrate. We played games, including: "The Shamu Shimmy" (an altered version of the Hokey Pokey), "Dive under the Sea"(kids dive under a sheet and come out with a sea creature), and "Going Fishing" (using fishing poles with magnets on the end, they fish for paper fish with paper clips on them). We also served an awesome lunch of Hot Dog Octopus's, Sea Shell Mac and Cheese, and Ocean Water.
On the guest list: Hobie, Sawyer, Blake, Nixin, Caleb, Max, Braxton, and Jack.
And what party would be complete without a pinata? Not this one! The pinata was filled with the guest's goodie bags.
Nixin had a great time. Thanks to those of you who let your children be a part of it!
The following evening we had our family over for a "Pasta Bar" dinner, cupcakes, and ice cream. It sure was nice to see everyone!
