It was windy, and could have been a tad warmer, but... it didn't rain! And, I think, a good time was had by all.
Above: pre-party set-up.
They turned out beautifully! Silas' is on the right:
Another big hit was the fishing game. I made origami sea creatures as prizes, and the kids took turns "fishing" for them.
We let them go again and again until all the sea creatures had been claimed. Several of the kids took turns helping Patrick behind the ocean/scenes put the prizes on the hook/paper clip.
After that game, it was time to play pin-the-fin-on-the-shark. It's a good think I knit 3 little fish as prizes because we had a 3-way tie!
Cupcake time! We sang Happy Birthday, but it was too windy to keep the candles lit, so I suggested he pretend to blow them out, and Silas obliged.
Towards the end of the party, the sun came out and it warmed up:
Some of our party-goers stuck around afterwards, and the party continued. I think Silas and his friend, O must have spent 20+ minutes in those swings.
