We paired back the invite list, inviting only our closest friends and a few family members and we decided to serve pizza so Justin wouldn't be worried about cooking for everyone. Our initial plan was to have a pizza and pool party but in typical KC weather we went from 96 on Friday to a very cool 60 on Saturday morning. I am sure the kiddos would have jumped right in and loved every minute of splashing around in the freezing cold pool but not this mommy…our house never looked so good.
Luckily, we have a pretty cool friend that let us borrow her children's bounce house--that took no time at all to inflate--add a few already blown up beach balls, some amped up kids and we had ourselves a party. I'm not even sure Kaden ever left the bouncy house except for when it came time to sing Happy Birthday and for him to blow out his candle.
He chased Hannah. He jumped in the bounce house with Tyler, Colton, Jake & Madi. Logan followed everyone around and Kiley sat there taking notes cause it won't be long and she'll be scooting along right after them.
With the quick mention of cupcakes, the kids dropped everything they were doing and came running. They were in for quite the treat. Shark Bite Cupcakes. A co-worker of mine ran across these cupcakes on a blog and sent them to me as an idea for Kaden's birthday-I loved them. I instantly sent MoMo Roo an email with the idea and like everything else she made it happen. They looked great and tasted even better. They were a huge hit!
I think it is safe to say that this kid has had more than enough Birthday Love for his third birthday. Thank you to everyone who helped celebrate his birthday over the last week and a half. An even bigger thank you to everyone who donated toothbrushes and toothpaste on behalf of Kaden's birthday to Operation Breakthrough-we are so blessed to have such generous friends and family.
