Turning 5

My baby turned 5 over the weekend and we had a
Pirate Pizza Pool Party!

When I first started planning this party I searched on Etsy for some invitations and found this wonderful etsy.com shop


Please go visit and take a look at all of the wonderful things there, including these...


I llllllooooooovvvvvveeeeedddddd this customized invitation! 
Thank you so much Papercandee Shoppe!



Cupcake toppers that I used everywhere



including cupcakes





Our pirate party house.



Here he is, my now 5 year old. 
We have come to an agreement, no more getting older. 
He promised me this today. 
5 was the limit. 
I am holding him to it.



He really enjoyed his pool party with his sweet little friends.
They stopped moving for one second to give me this picture, aren't they sweet!



And then they were off again.





The proud mommy and daddy!



This is a tradition I stole from my Uncle Duncan, I was told that he would take a picture of his girls (my cousins) in their bed right when they wake up on their birthdays. 

This is Joey's the morning he turned 5.

And in case you are wondering, these are his other birthday morning pictures.






We decided on a fun lunch at the T-Rex cafe at Downtown Disney the day of his birthday. 





The chocolate extinction dessert and a song from the T-Rex cafe staff. 
A big weekend for a big boy.

Happy birthday my love! 



Now onto convincing this Lil one to stop growing up. 
Maybe I will let him get to 5 also, but 4 just may be my limit.
