This year we tried to keep things a little more low key than in the past. In the past we've had birthday parties in the park but each year the weather just hasn't seen to cooperate. Our last birthday party in Toronto was a Sportball party, which was really great, but we were hoping to go back to basics with this one.
So the festivities started on Saturday when we had a few of Sebastian's closer friends over for a birthday party. We decided to have a "marsh" theme and along with having a marsh themed cake I made a scavenger hunt for the kids to do at the marsh and all the children painted a ceramic frog. Although we didn't do the scavenger hunt as the kids were too busy playing, which is actually a great thing that they didn't have to be kept too occupied, we had a lot of fun. It was a wonderful afternoon spent with friends and Sebastian really enjoyed himself.
