In the world of ribbon, princesses, fairies, and fashion that comes with having two older sisters, my little boy has carved out a special place in our hearts that is full of rough and tumble, baseballs, swords, and lightsabers. We celebrated his birthday this week, by celebrating his favorite past time: Baseball.
Several years ago my husband and I decided that we would try to do birthday parties at our house as much as possible. Firstly, because we want their best memories to be of our home, and more specifically our backyard. We've been blessed with a large backyard, so we have plenty of space to play. Secondly, because it is so much more cost-effective. Birthday parties can be just as fun on a tight budget. Don't get me wrong, we love being invited to parties, regardless of where they are!
It turned out to be a perfect day, so we partied on the back porch. The centerpiece was a tin bucket filled with the party favors. (Boys don't care, do they?)
