Swimming with the Fishes

Over the weekend, my husband and I went to Mobile, AL to visit his "sister" and her family. Their little boy turns four today, so we had his party on Sunday.  The theme was "Swimming with the Fishes."
 
The four of us stayed up SUPER late after Stephen went to bed to set up for his party.  His reaction the next morning was priceless! He jumped out of bed and ran into the hallway where he saw this:
The hallway had been transformed into his own aquarium.  He loved looking at the sharks, turtles, and of course "Nemo." He said, "Oh, Wow! It's Decorated!"
 
The gift table was adorable with more fish pictures decorating the table cloth and a dolphin mylar balloon (that he later insisted that we tie to his bed so the dolphin could sleep with him!)
 
The food I think was the most incredible!  Everything fit into the Under Water theme.
From top: "Shark Bait" Watermelon Shark Fruit Bowl
"Fish Bites" Gummy Snacks
"Fish and Chips" Goldfish Crackers and Potato Chips
Peanutbutter and "Jellyfish" Sandwiches
"Submarine" Sandwiches
"Fan-Sea Treats" Cake Balls

Happy Birthday, Big Boy! We love you very much!
