A Successful Party!

I think X's party went really well! I am exhausted...LOL. But I think he enjoyed it and it was a beautiful day!!! I was so thrilled about that! Above is the cake I made him...(it's a baseball....LOL) And below is a pic of mama and the birthday boy:

Here is a picture of where we held the FIL and his brothers built this pavillion just a couple weeks ago! Isn't it great???

The gift table...and everyone sitting around the fire. It was a bit windy...almost to the point of being chilly...but still...a gorgeous day!!!

We had hamburgers, hotdogs, nachos, popcorn, homemade mac and cheese, baked beans, potatoes sticks, and of course, cake and icecream!!! We tried to do a bunch of baseball foods...and my mom even found these paper holders for the nachos...just like they would have at a baseball game!!! I was so happy!!!

Here's X, blowing out his candles:


Finally! Gift opening time! (A kid's favorite part of the birthday party!):

He got a bunch of great gifts! One of the things was a bike helmet! He loves to ride his bike and so now he will have a GREAT helmet to wear and keep him safe!!!

And another pic of him opening a gift...(I wanted to include this pic cuz my honey is in the pic...hehe...isn't he so cute? LOVE that man!):

So overall, I think it was a great day and a fun party! Xavier didn't think he actually turned 5 till his party started. I had a hard time explaining to him the whole day was his birthday...not just during the party!!! LOL Thank you for sharing in these memories with us! I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful Wednesday and thank you for all your birthday wishes for X!!! :)
