Today was the final pool party in what seems like a marathon of kids' parties (seriously, was everyone born in the summer?). Ikaika has been doing well with waterwings in the pool (open ocean, not so much - he doesn't seem to like getting his head/face wet). The following video is of him swimming - nothing exciting, if you aren't my mother you should probably skip watching it.
Koa's only there for the food.
This last party was a double feature (girl turning 1, boy turning 3). I know my friends are crafty but this goes above and beyond! It was a mermaid/shark theme and everything...I mean EVERYTHING from the decorations to the food was in step with the theme. Incredible. I really appreciated the attention to detail and especially laughed at this fruit bowl aka "shark barf".
This blue frosting was the craziest stuff. After cake, every kid looked like a smurf. Luckily, none of the parents were wearing white pants ;)
I wish I had gotten a picture of the squid hot dogs they were serving: hot dogs half wrapped in a crescent roll then the end was cut to look like tentacles. Too cute.
