Since Oliver turned 5 this year, we decided that he could have 5 friends over for a party. He chose a rocket party, with all BOYS. (Although, a few sisters DID get to come, too!)
We had such fun with these sweet boys--most of them are from his preschool class at school and are SUCH wonderful friends!
We ate hot dog rockets, made our own rockets, and shot off a REAL rocket thanks to our rocket guy Worker Mitch. (The guy Joel works with...)
Worker Mitch teaching Ollie about his new rocket launcher...
This part was adorable! Worker Mitch's son led the effort to retrieve the BIG rocket that Mitch brought...he led them back and was counting for them to "drop it" all together--what a sweet big kid Eli is!
We had such fun at Ollie's friend party...but I think we decided that next year, we'll condense the celebrating into a week or so....spreading it out over two makes for a rather loooooooong celebration! :-)
