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.
