Party Time!

For Aidan's 5th birthday, we let him have a "big" party. For the first time, he invited his entire class and a few other friends. He was so excited! We explained that this isn't something we're going to do every year (hello expensive!), but for milestones and such, yes. Every once in while. ;) It was worth it.
We had a good turn out, and people were so kind towards Aidan. He got some pretty cool gifts!
The party was on Brennan's birthday, but let me assure you...Brennan had a blast! Everything he loves in one place: running around, slides, swings, cars, and a train table. Not to mention cupcakes...
There are too many pictures to share them all, but here are some to give you an idea of how the party was:

On our way! We had so many balloons you couldn't even see out the back window

Party room!

yet another...
I was excited about this one. On clearance for $2. Awesome, huh?
Birthday cupcakes Ready to blow out the candle
Opening presents! Somehow the kids got off their shoes
and socks Attempt at a group photo
This one cracks me up. Hilarious experience, really.
Aidan climbing the slide w/ one of his "girlfriends" Pat was a big hit riding his unicycle around Brennan trying to decide...attempt the climbing wall, or swing?
Fun on the tire swing! I loved those as a kid
Brennan going down a slide head-first
Good-bye! Thanks for coming!

I think milestone birthdays are fun to celebrate. And totally smart of you to have the party somewhere other than your house!
