We had such a fun day yesterday! It was fun to celebrate his birthday on the same day that we had his party. Since we're renting a townhouse and there's not much space here, we decided to have his party at Holli's Sweet Tooth and it was perfect! All week whenever we talked about his party he's say "Carter, Cooper comin?" It really is sweet how he's gotten to love his friends here and was excited for them to celebrate his big day with him. Not that he wasn't excited about the food. He kept saying he wanted to eat cupcakes, cake and ice cream. And he succeeded.
We started off the day singing and eating a big fat cinnamon roll donut. Nothing but sugar for the birthday boy!
Because the party was at lunch time, we had some food for the kiddos. I made candy-shop themed food like Lollipops:
and gumballs. They also had Starbursts (star shaped PB & J), Caramels (cheese cubes), and Ice Cream cones filled with goldfish.
I think the cake turned out quite cute considering when I went to pick it up (30 minutes before the party) they told me they didn't have our order. Although it doesn't look like the original that I ordered I think it turned out great for a rush order!!!
And, in case cake and ice cream weren't enough, I added some cupcakes to the mix.
Holli's provided the candy bag favors for the kids and I had some "thanks for making my party so SWEET" tags made for them.
Having a little pre-party snack:
He absolutely loved it when everyone sang Happy Birthday to him and was so proud that he was able to blow out the candles himself!
What a sugar high looks like:
One happy birthday boy
After the party, and a much needed nap, we set out to open his presents!
Mimi and Grumps were there to help.
His favorite toy? A Cars racing track complete with "a-queen" (Lightening McQueen) and another car that I'll have to learn who it is. Next up on the favorite list is his new four wheeler!
Learning to ride his new tricycle.
At the end of the day, it's much easier to just get pushed by Gram!
Last night I asked him what his favorite part of the day was and he said "my birthday party!" Melts my heart that he had so much fun on his special day!
