It was Kid #1's 5th Birthday on Saturday and I decided a while back that it would be a good idea to have a simple, old school style birthday party at our house and invite all his friends from school.  (Does no one have simple kids birthday parties anymore??, there's always clowns, magicians, exotic or expensive locations and apparently you have to drop at least $500 bucks. I say no, this kid is ONLY 5.)  If I'm going to pay through the nose for a party I'll at least do it when he's old enough to remember it!!

We I chose to invite boys only to keep the numbers's not like I'm encouraging gender segregation at an early age, just trying to make things manageable. And believe me 12  five year old boys was MORE then enough for Mama to handle. Fortunately my two besties were able to help out with the pandemonium party fun!

{Kid #1 is five today, whaaat!?!?!)

We had a Sponge Bob/Hawaiian party theme (since Kid is still in love with Hawaii after our holiday in Oahu this winter). The kids ate pizza, plenty of candy and chips, we had a limbo-stick game and a pinata to attack for prizes inside. Good times right?,,,if you're five I guess!

Later that night since my friends were in town to celebrate my birthday too and we really needed to drink have some fun, we went out for dinner to a cute little Italian place downtown, had a couple bottles of red and continued on for drinks at a place called Mercury. 
How do you spell post kids-party relief?!  W-i-n-e.

The nice "gentlemen" behind us were kind enough to buy a round of vino...thanks boys, laterz!  Use them then lose them I say!!

You son gets to go to the other expensive parties anyway. Really, what makes them happy? You could have a cake and two or three friends and it would work for him. I love how you went out and celebrated his b-day later on. You go girls!!!

now see! i think that birthday party looks more fun for the kids. i agree, it's so not necessary to spend a gripload on something they don't really care about. although i hear they like those jumpy things. lol.

LOVE hawaii! great theme ;)

SpongeBob and Hawaii go together well. My son's 4th birthday was SpongeBob themed. Five's coming up. I don't know what we're doing yet.
