Grayson's Nemo Party!!

Grayson had his 2nd Birthday Party on Saturday, August 24th! It was a blast and he talked about it for months before! He loves Nemo, so we decided to do it at my in-laws by the pool with a Nemo theme! So fun!
Here he is a couple of days before in a shirt my mom got him for the party!!
He was a little excited to say the least;)
I love this precious face sooo much!
And he loves Nemo sooo much!

I love planning parties! I know he is young, but I promise he was excited about all the details with me, hehe! Here I had suckers in pop rocks... "Take a little dip in the rockin' sea!" is what the sign read!
Cupcakes & Ice Cream Cones... 2 of Gray's favs!
He loooves Crush from Nemo and recites this line daily! I thought it was very fitting for the dessert table! "Duuuude! Check it Ouuut!"
The man of the day!:)
This was an orange punch a.k.a. "P. Sherman Punch"
BBQ & Hot dogs was what's for dinner!

The sides...
Nemo floaties hangin' in the pool!
A few dips for appitezers... Dori Dip, that is:)
Little Nemo swim toys were the favors for the kiddos! They were supposed to "save" Nemo on their way out! "Help! Save me from the WHALE! You better grab me before you BAIL!"

The best moment of the day! His face was priceless! Makes everything well worth it!!
