Mark's birthday party

On Sunday, we had Mark's 5th birthday party.  It was gorgeous weather, and I think everyone had a good time, but I KNOW Mark did!

Mark wanted a dinosaur party, so we decorated with dinos, he wore a dino shirt, we decorated dino cookies, colored dino coloring pages, and dug for dinos.  He had a blast celebrating with his friends.

Welcome to the party!

Digging for dinos was definitely a favorite activity!

Cookie decorating was still popular too.

Ali has a cookie hidden somewhere under that pile of sprinkles!

She did pick the color of sprinkles that matched her shirt and bows!  :)

Bill made a BBQ dinner for everyone.  It amazes me that he can cook that much food and pulls it off every party!  

Happy birthday to you...

Mark loves ice cream, so we had ice cream with the cupcakes

 This is the first time we have opened presents at the party.  At most of the parties we have been to, the kid has done that, and Mark really wanted to.  The other kids seemed really excited about it too.

Mark had this smile on his face pretty much the whole time

We are so blessed to have family and friends around us.

We had a fantastic time!  I love birthday parties, and we are already looking forward to the next one in October!  :)
