Birthday Boy

Brody celebrated his 5th birthday last Saturday (the 17th...although his real birthday is the 18th) with his first ever requested party. The past few years, he has only wanted "mommy, daddy and Chloe" to come to his party so that has been what we've done but this year he wanted EVERYONE to come. We set the limit at 11 and everyone showed up. His theme you ask? Let's just say it was a conglomeration of all things boy...think Star Wars AND Superheros both! Yep, that's right. Every little boy's dream. Star Wars invitations, favors and cake and a big Spiderman bouncy house.
The day was great. Laid back. Fun. Full of joy and celebration. Good food, great friends and my sweet baby turning 5. It's hard to believe he is "a whole hand now"! So I don't forget when he asks me in a year who came to his 5th birthday party, here is the list: Chloe, Preston, Lawson, Kirk, Braxton, Ella, Elliott, Carter, Alyssa, and Kailyn.
After the kids played, bounced and ran around for about an hour, we ate lunch, played a bit more and then had cake. Brody got very shy as everyone sang Happy Birthday to him but he blew out the candle like a champ and then dug into his cake. After cake was more bouncing and then presents.
The day went off without a hitch. Literally it was the best party and the best day for Team Blevins. By the end of it, we were all exhausted and each of us fell asleep early and slept like champs.
