Our little P Man turned FOUR on July 22! I vowed that I was going to keep his party MUCH smaller this year.
As much as I loved having everyone over last year, SEVENTY-THREE people was just a little too much. P actually got so overwhelmed that he didn’t even participate in his own party.
That was my driving factor in keeping it small this year. I wanted to make sure that the birthday boy enjoyed himself! After all, the party was all for him. Not the guests.
Since this is our first summer with the new pool, this years party theme was an easy one.
I ordered all my printables HERE!A local bakery made the cake for me!
Party favor – beach balls! $1 each Can’t beat that!
Two of my college friends that I was on dance team with showed up with their little boys. Yes, we all have boys. Each of them have two and then my three. No dance team members in our future.
It was so nice to catch up with them!
I only let P invite 12 friends. We had to cut it off somewhere. Trust me, it was difficult for me, but I knew that I couldn’t handle 50 people in the pool!
I had this sign from P’s 1st birthday (yes, we did a pool party then too – at a friends house).
Bents was being “middle child” again and trying to destroy his brother’s day by taking down the cake. I seriously turned my back for 0.5 seconds and he had his hands in the icing.
They are the BEST of friends. Seriously obsessed with each other. Also, the same two that had a spitting contest once in the playroom. As in…taking a drink of their juice and then spitting it at each other…for a good solid 30 minutes. You can imagine there wasn’t a dry spot left in the playroom when I caught them. They are forbidden to be left alone. Merely for the fact that I do not enjoy cleaning up boy spit.
