Sullivan is lucky to have a summer birthday. And this year the weather was even better than we could have hoped for. This past Saturday brought us a sunny, 80 degree day that was perfect for being outside. Sullivan was surrounded by family and friends and was one happy camper ;)
|1) Annabelle lounging by the "campfire" 2) Sullivan roasting a marshmellow 3) Kiddos at the fishing hole|
|My personalized Walmart cake. I added Pirouette cookies, melted cinnamon and butterscotch candies for the "fire" and made little a banner.|
|Sullivan looking out at an impressively full backyard of people singing happy birthday to HIM!|
|Major mom fail: I only put one candle on the cake?!|
We realized the one candle after we already sang happy birthday. So we had the boys hold up two fingers for the record :)
The only thing that really matters is this happy little face.
He was having a blast and enjoyed BOTH the orange-marshmellow cupcakes and the chocolate cake :)
|I love the look on Max's face here :) Listening to Boobo tell them the rules...|
Trail Mix Bar for guests to make their own mix.
|Nora and Max enjoying their cake.|
|Jennifer and Annabelle|
|Sullivan with Mimi and PopPop. He just mastered holding up two fingers a couple days ago and is pretty proud of his accomplishment :)|
|Loved Lolli and Boobo's dancing squirrel card.|
|Sullivan's new tricycle from Lolli and Boobo!|

Guests left with S'more for later...
And we get to take a very nice donation of books to children who don't have many (if any) books to call their own. We're taking the younger-aged books to The Children's Place (BMA's philanthropy) and the more advanced books to Hands to Hearts KC (Sullivan's personal philanthropy :)
Thank you to all of our guests for donating so generously!
