Luca turns Five Years Old!

Luca just turned FIVE YEARS OLD and we had a 3 day extravaganza to celebrate!

 First, there were presents, cards, books and fun toys...
(ok, fun for him--slightly problematic for me and Greg; see below on left.)

Magda is reading a card to Luca on right...

Besides an awesome star wars watch, a lego set, an indoor basketball hoop, Luca got some beautiful books, a fun puzzle and an outdoor basket ball and a lovely water color painting--to just name a few...

And there was swimming...

And there was a home-made chocolate cake, which was pretty awesome if I do say so myself!

And that was just Saturday and Sunday!! 

On Monday, we invited the neighborhood kids to celebrate with us at the park with ice cream.

We scooped up 5 different flavors; cones or cups, 
and then the kids played 
while the adults sipped a lemon drop punch I made
 (for the grown ups only!)  

It was hot and buggy but we had a great time.

I have to say, the whole park party is such good idea!!  

I highly recommend utilizing your neighborhood park the next time you have a party to celebrate...
And, as an extra bonus, all the melted ice cream stays at the park--not on your floors!

The party set up.

Scoop fast! We recommend, 2--better yet: 3 adult scoopers...ice cream melts fast!

A happy bunch!  And Luca had a great time...

Happy Birthday Luca!!

cannot believe our little baby is 5.
