Emmy's Nemo party

Emmy's favorite movie to watch over the past year has been Finding Nemo, so when I asked her what kind of birthday party she wanted, she of course said, "A Nemo party!"

Emmy's grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins came to celebrate with her. The first activity was a Finding Nemo obstacle course. First, they had to get past the sharks (ie. Nathan). Kyle was a fast little fishy and almost made it past the shark.

Then they had to bounce through the jellyfish!

Then they had to be turtles and carry fish across the yard on their backs.

And finally they had to get swallowed by the whale and get spit out to rescue Nemo and his friends. Emily didn't really "get" this obstacle course. Oh well.

Then we had a little fishing pond where everyone got to fish for some prizes.

And then the kids got to make their own aquariums by putting little toy fishies, fish confetti, glitter, and colored water into jars.

Then it was time for presents! Emmy got lots of fun things. She sure is a lucky girl to have such good cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents.

Of course she had to try on her new shoes!

And then, of course, we had some birthday cake and homemade ice cream.

This was my best attempt at making her Nemo cake. I know it looks like a kindergartener drew this, but at least Emmy could tell it was Nemo! Ha!

I think she had a fun time though, and she was excited to have her cousins come over and play. Every few days she keeps asking if she can have another birthday party. Thank you to everyone who came and made Emmy's day special!
