Gavin is 6! We celebrated like sharks

Our oldest grandson just had a birthday and is 6 years old! He is such a sweetheart and I am very proud of him and also sad that he is just growing up so fast.
We like to celebrate around here so we had a family party for him this weekend. He likes sharks and we saw shark hat instructions in a free issue of Ranger Rick Jr that was sent to our house.
I got the foam sheets at Hobby Lobby and I made 12 shark hats for the birthday boy and guests. 

The food was simple. I made buns with dough made in my bread machine, My husband smoked and sliced a pork loin. We also had hard cooked eggs, fresh fruit and veggies and chips. 
My daughter made the cupcakes and my son got the decorations and balloons. 

The party was very little work but it was fun and I think the birthday boy was very happy.


It was cold rainy evening and my husband had a great idea to move our vehicles out of the garage so the children could ride bikes and toys there.

    I have to give a thumbs up on Ranger Rick Jr as a great magazine for young children.  All the grands have enjoyed looking at the amazing animal photos. My husband has enjoyed looking at with the grands. He told me we should get a subscription to Ranger Rick Jr, so I did.

    1. Hi Wendi, I did switch my comments, it is so confusing! All the Google comments disappeared when I switched but I prefer when everyone can comment if they want,

  5. I can't believe that Gavin is 6! Love the hats! Cupcakes are cute too. Simple parties are the best. The kids use to get Ranger Rick magazine and they enjoyed it.

  6. Happy Birthday to Gavin! I, too, cannot believe he's six years old already, and I, too, am a bit sad about that since my own B-man is going to be six on his next birthday as well.
    Very fun shark party! I love the hats and cupcakes.
    The NWF has several good magazines for kids depending on age. I still have some from when my own kids were little, and gave the boys a subscription of their own a couple of years ago. They love magazines. Does Gavin like Legos? There's a free Lego magazine for kids that Brad just started getting.
