Birthday Bash

The baseball birthday party was a hit! We started off with a home run derby and the kids tried to hit the ball over the fence for a home run (and to get a gold metal). Hooray for our wonderful pitcher.Then, of course, we ate and ate and ate some more. The munchies included all the things you would get at the concession stand: hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, cracker jack, popcorn, licorice, pickles, cotton candy...you get the idea!
The cake was (no shocker here) a baseball!And there were cupcakes for the little guys.Nathan liked his cupcake...a lot!


Then it was pinata time. You've probably already guessed...it was a baseball! Everyone took a swing at it and it ended up breaking off the swing set but not breaking open.Willie bravely (as the picture demonstrates) held the pinata for the kids to whack. I had my camera ready to capture any injuries...but there were none.Once the contents had spilled it was every baseball player for themselves.
Both Nathan and Jacob were thrilled with their gifts. There is a HUGE difference between a five-year-old opening presents......and a one-year-old opening presents!Happy Birthday Boys!

What a fun birthday party! I'm seriously gonna copy this idea some day- it's so perfect. I love it! And I'm glad there were no pinata injuries, although you could have been famous on America's Funniest Home Videos!

Happy birthday boys! It was a FUN, FUN, FUN party (only 43 people in attendance, with 24 of those being children). Natalie didn't mention she decorated the cake. It was sooooo DELICIOUS!
