Ethan's Turning Three // Pool Birthday Party!

Welp, almost a month later, I'm finally sharing Ethan's birthday party pictures.  His whole party came together at the last minute, and I'm afraid it shows!  But we still had a blast and that's what counts at the end of the day, right?!  So here are some snaps from the day...

Ethan's invitations were from Minted...the best!

Beach balls and streamers pretty much made up the theme...and...

Lots of pools!!  And the cutest three year old t-shirt!

Ethan loved having everyone sing happy birthday...and can you please notice my homemade cake?  It was a disaster, but I made it work!

We ultimately opted for ice cream sandwiches for the kids.  And can you please check out my threenager?!

All in all, it was a great day!  Next year though...I think we'll just go to the beach and call it a day!  ;)

  2. After all the prep I'm doing for Presley's first birthday I've decided next year we are going out of town!!

  3. Super cute!!! And I love how easy you made it for the most part - no fancy decor. What's funny is my little man is right around Ethan's age and I just sent out invites to his birthday and we are doing water party in the backyard too!!! Hopefully it's as cute as yours :)

  4. Sounds like you guys had the best day! Seriously, ice cream and swimming is Mason's idea of the perfect day! I opted not to have a party this year (I know, horrible mom), but instead we're taking Mason to Disneyland! I think he'll forgive me lol :)

  5. What a gorgeous birthday party for your precious little man - he looks like he had such fun!! x
