Captain Aiden's Birthday Bash & High Five for *Giveaway* Friday!

Earlier this month, we celebrated Aiden's 5th birthday - Captain Aiden style. I swear, he doesn't even like Captain America, but I feel like he feels a huge attachment & association with the "A" emblem, lol. This was the first year that we didn't throw him an over the top famjam - and if you know us and our family ... that's almost 100 guests, give or take a few - yikes! Instead, his birthday party consisted of some friends from school (if he has his way he'd invite the entire class but we limited him to 8) and a few friends that he's "grown up" with. & I must say, intimate parties - what a breath of fresh air! Since his birthday is in June and we typically have nicer weather, it only made sense to have the party outdoors. We held the party at Andrew's Scenic Acres and because strawberry season hadn't started yet, we had most of the space to ourselves, major bonus! Two hours was just enough time to eat, run around, play & blow some candles on an ice cream cake, yum aaaand thanks to my sister Chelsea and my friend Rachel, my vision of DYO (decorate your own) super hero cape came to life! They were def a fav during the party & so so adorable to watch the kiddies run around in them! I even got hubby kuddos for running a smooth event (ha!). Seeeeee sometimes I'm not just a scatter brain who has all these plans and ideas. Sometimes, I take action & get shiz done!

It's so hard to take photos while hosting! Luckily my brother and dad got a good bunch :)
