Liam's Safari Birthday Party

I came up with the idea of having a safari-themed party for Liam because he loves animals. He gets so excited when he sees lions, elephants, giraffes...so I knew he would really enjoy this theme. Given that his birthday is in the middle of the summer in Miami I knew we had to include swimming in this party. My parents recently renovated their backyard and it looks amazing, so it served as the perfect space to hold this party.  

I was so pleased with how everything turned out. The decorations were perfect and the kids had so much fun swimming in the pool. I'm thankful for everyone pitching in to make this party happen. Our family really stepped it up! So prepare yourself for a picture flood!

We had a little play place set up in the shade where kids could make an animal mask or just play in the little house or with the chalkboard.
