Shark Boy is 5!

Carter finally turned 5!
Carter was so excited to turn 5. He had been talking about his 5th b-day for months prior. We decided on a fun SHARK party for him. He loves Shark boy and Lava girl, so i thought perfect, sharks it is. I had lots of fun planning out his party and thinking of all the details.We decided to do a big family party since we have all my family here and Jono has almost all his family here.Carters lucky to have most of his family around to celebrate him. I am so lucky to have my SIL, Ashly, who is absolutely amazing, make all the little shark design labels for the water bottles, bags, cute birthday banner, and T's. Everything turned out so cute!! sister, Lauren has some amazing skills at cake decorating!! A few years ago she took up cake decorating as a hobbie, and has become so good at it!!! She was so nice and sweet and made all of the adorable, cute, detailed Shark and life preserver cupcakes. They were absolutely perfect for the party, and gave it that perfect final touch. I guess I am one lucky girl to have 2 family members that have got some good skills! The party turned out so cute and lots of fun! We did fun water games, pin the fin on the shark, had a shark pinata, and had a BBQ.
It was a fun day celebrating our Carter! We love you Carter!
