last weekend we celebrated my youngest boy, lion. it was such a wonderful weekend spent with family and friends.
we had dear friends come and spend the night before the party at our house. the kids had an awesome time playing, finding inch worms, climbing fences, playing games, while us adults had an opportunity to catch-up.
this is how it started! BEER!
every time dear hubby or i are drinking beer’s, lion wants to try it. he loves the taste of beer and keeps going after the bottle, it’s funny at first, but then it becomes a little concerning! haha!
we played. did gymnastics. chatted. laughed. watched tv. ate. drank. and laughed some more!
we had such a fun time together!
the kids were delighted to have so much time to play. then the next day was PARTY TIME!!!
i tried to keep things simple food wise; fruit kabobs, crackers, cheese and gravlox salmon, watermelon, and cookies!
the kids LOVED the pinata!
after the games it was time for business.
we made lion a layered ice cream cake. it was so yummy and perfect for a hot summer birthday!
and just on cue, as soon as we all sang happy birthday to my littlest guy, i got all choked up with emotions and tears. i looked over at my mom, and saw her looking at me with tears in her eyes. haha! they were tears of joy and pride, but this is what we do in my family; we cry about everything!
