Gone Fishin'-Fischer's 4th Birthday

I can't believe I have a 4 year old. Fischer is growing up so fast. Yesterday we celebrated his birthday in true Fischer style by having a Fishing Party.  It was a good time had by all. Here are some pictures from his party.

For drinks our guest had the option of Fresh Spring Water or Lake Water (Apple Juice)
Dinner consisted of Hot dogs and Chili with a few fishy side dishes.
We had seaweed salad (green salad)
A bucket of worms (jello) Salmon Eggs (grapes) Fish and chips

We also provided bobbers and reels.
A party isn't complete without some fun games.  Our guest enjoyed fishing at Fischer's Fishin' Hole.

Even Griffin got in some fishing.
Next we had our Fish and Bait Challenge.  The guest were the fish while we lured them in with bait.  First "Fish" to eat the worm won the round. 

We even got the big boys to come out for the bait.

I had a fish toss game that was out for anyone to play with it.  This was by far Griffin's favorite game.

After games we had Fischer open presents. Here are just a few of the gifts he received.

Every year Grandpa Mike has a stick for each grandchild that he marks how tall they are that year

Afterwords we sang happy birthday and let Fischer blow out his candles.
When the party was over we thanked our guest for coming and each of the kids received their own tackle box complete with worms and minnows (red sweetish fish)
Happy Birthday Fischer!  We sure love you.  Can't wait to see what this next year has in store for us.

I love your sons birthday invitation - I'm having a "Gone Fishing" theme for my son's party as well and would love to know where yours came from or if I can purchase it from you if it's an original?

The invitation was one I made in a Memory Mixer digital scrapbook program. If you would like please message me your email and I can get you a copy of it.
