For Thea's 5th birthday party, Merfolk and Pirates united for an epic gathering. These kids really know how to have a good time. Thea's mother, Amy, puts so much love into the theme. She hand-crafts costumes for the children, bakes themed desserts, and decorates the entire living area for the guests. The entertainment was provided by Kiwi - an amazingly talented face painter, balloonist and clown. Photos taken with a Canon 30D, Canon 28/1.8, 430EX Flash.
