One of the first years my husband and I started dating, I got us some Shark Week Kick Off themed Snacks!! We thought it’d be a fun date night!! It became a tradition from there on out!!

Year Two!

Another year of just the 2 of us! Just some themed snacks!

Year Three!

This is the year we decided to start the parties!!! We invited some friends over and watched Shark Week while playing cards games!! New expanded Tradition!! You can see I stepped up my themed snacks! 😉 Crabwiches! Ocean Water! Shark Teeth Cheese Triangles! Seashell Pasta! Seaweed Grapes! Land Shark Beer!

Year Four!

We had a newborn for Year Four!! We HAD to get her into it too!! Our little Shark Bait! I will admit I slacked on my themed snacks this year! We had friends over and went swimming in the (non) shark infested pool! 😉 We BBQ’d and played pass the baby!! Everyone wanted to hold her! Gah I miss my tiny chunky newborn!!

Year Five!

I had to step it back up last year!! It was our 5th year && the 30th Anniversary of Shark Week!! Here are all of the details from our party!!

I got the streamers && Shark decals from Party City!

Year 6:

We had a Pool Party at my In Laws NEW (like 1st day ready NEW) pool at their new house!! I mean, look how gorgeous this is!! We BBQ’d, got sunburned, made the most amazing memories!! I love mixing this up each year!! It was laid back this year but ahhhhmazing!! The kids loved pretending there were sharks in the pool!!

My SIL tagged me in this Watermelon Shark post Saturday and said, you need to make this for your party!! SO I DID!!
