Grace's Mermaid Birthday Party........

Grace's Mermaid Birthday Party

For the last couple of months Grace has really been interested in Mermaids so it was natural for her to ask for a Mermaid themed birthday party! I spent about 2 1/2 hours on that cake and boy was my hand tired from making all those stars! She really enjoyed it though so it was all worth it!!
We decorated with shells and tried to make it seem like we were underwater!
Gene helped me make these shell chocolates!! Yum Yum!

Grace blowing out the candles...
Opening some presents......

Here she is the day of her birthday (Sat.) with some of her presents from us!

The kids enjoying their goodie bags from the treasure chest....

Blowing bubbles and running around outside....
We had to include swimming too because it wouldn't be a Mermaid party without it!! By the way, don't ask me why Grace is in one of those baby floats because she hasn't been in one since she was little??? ;) She is actually quite the little fishy these days! I didn't get that many photos from her birthday party because it all went so fast!!
All in all, Grace had a blast and loved every minute of it!!
