I can't believe my oldest is 5. Its been taking awhile for that to truly sink in...5 is a big milestone and its a little crazy to think we've made it to that milestone.  It was a big birthday for him as well, it was the first time he had opinion about what he wanted for his gifts and for a party. All he really wanted though was a piñata... he's so simple and sweet about his request that anytime he asks I love to indulge because he doesn't ask for things very often.

We had two different parties with families and he loved getting that special attention from Grandmas and Grandpas, aunts and uncles. Each being so sweet to him.

We decided to also through a friend party with just a few of his close friends that he chose. We just kept it low key, and had a super hero themed party. We ate, and then had a super training course where each child got to test their abilities of strength and if they passed they got a super cape. We had a rockwall challenge, hitting a building with a straw shooter, flying over building course (aka a Photo Booth :) ) stomp out the evil bombs from a villain ( we filled up water balloons for each of them to pop) and last their hitting strength and had to hit a piñata with Villains on the front.

I'll be honest it was a lot of work, Brandon and I were exhausted  by the end of the night. But it was worth it to see Daxton talk about it, and have him feel so special. I love my little Daxton so much.

What a gorgeous photo of Daxton (the last picture on the blog). You and Brandon are so creative and thoughtful for all that you do for your family.

I remember when our boys each turned 5 we were just as shocked as you! Huge milestone for kids! Great ideas (but then you always are so creative and have great ideas Shelby) and great fun had by all! Good job both of you. And Daxton looks so much like his daddy :)

Wow just incredible in every way. From the decorations, photos, food, activities. I'm so impressed. Someday I'll grow up to be just as talented. I'm so proud of you.

This is by far the cutest simplest most memory building party ever. He will always remember this party. You two are amazing. I love all the fun ideas to keep them entertained and imagining.
