2nd Birthday Party!!


How has time flown so much that I'm sitting here blogging about Declan's 2nd birthday party??! Despite the not-so-fabulous-for-a-park-party weather (upper 90s, humid as heck), we all sweated together and had a blast!

This year's theme was balls. Declan has a crazy obsession with all balls and received some great new ones for his collection. I took it easy with decorating- a Happy Birthday sign, some balloons and cushy baseballs/basketballs/soccer balls on the tables for the little ones to take home. We set up a soccer goal and brought balls from home and the kids had fun! We had a classic summer lunch- hot dogs, chicken brats, fruit salad, pasta salad, homemade pickles and chips. Yum-o.
