Happy Birthday Hudson!!!

This weekend we celebrated Hudson turning 5!!!  I can't believe the baby of our family is now a whole hand, but he has been looking forward to his birthday for months and was on a major countdown to this day.

He had very specific plans for his special day and I was happy to deliver.  Ever since he did the baseball camp at the beginning of the summer he knew he wanted a baseball party.  He wanted to invite his closest friends and he didn't want any girls there.  Ha! We did have some sisters tag along to the party, but only the boys played the games so he was happy.

The night before the girls gave him what they had gotten him for his birthday...a new outfit for his party. He is all about the athletic clothes and he loves his "pull-up socks" so this totally made his day. He wanted to try it on that night to be sure it was going to look good and after he got dressed (including his socks and shoes) he had the biggest smile and said, "I am just happy with JOY!"  He was so happy and it was so cute.  Of course I don't love losing the wardrobe battle, but seeing my sporty little guy so happy makes me happy, no matter what he is wearing or how silly his "pull-up socks" might look to me.

All I had to do for his party was show up.  They provide the cake, the pizza, everything.  They also gave him a t-shirt and batting gloves, which he thinks is just about the coolest thing ever.

We invited his closest little buddies and he had tons of fun getting to play dodgeball, whiffle ball and kick ball.  It was perfect for our sports loving little guy.

All of the boys seemed to have a great time and Hudson said it was just the party he was hoping for.  We gave these adorable cookies as his party favors! 

We came home and let him open the rest of his gifts and he had such generous friends. He got lots of fun new toys and things to play with.  

Later that afternoon we made our way to SlingShots.  They have ninja warrior training obstacles (both for adults and kids) and Hudson loves this place!  Actually all three of the kids do.  

Gigi and Papa came along with us and we had hoped to also be able to drive the go-carts, but the wait for that was way too long.  We stopped for dinner on the way home and the brought birthday desserts for both Hudson and Papa. I thought there was no way Hudson would finish his, but he did!

I'm pretty sure he had THE best day and I'm so happy we could give him such a special day for his birthday.
