Take me out to the ballgame!

Shortly after Jude's 2nd Birthday, he had already made up his mind that his 3rd Birthday would be a Detroit Tigers Baseball party!  He is so my child.  We make decisions right away which I love as it allows ample time for planning.  Yippee!  Jude's birthday falls at the end of March which in Michigan, can make for difficult planning!  You never know whether it will be snowing, raining or a bright beautiful, sunny day!  I enjoy planning parties so much that when I found out my due date, that was one of the first things I thought easy or hard will it be to plan during that time of year.  I also thought that I love that it falls during the school year so that I can make fun cupcakes for his classroom and have balloons and such delivered!  Fun!  I am sure he will enjoy it while he is little but I wonder how he will feel when I am still doing it when he is a senior in high school....?  I will most likely be that embarrassing mom.

So, I wanted to share some pictures from his party which turned out WONDERFUL!  The weather was perfect so we were able to hold it outdoors at our home.  I set up the food as if it were a concession stand and borrowed a hotdog warmer which held the hotdogs.  Sides included individually packaged baked beans and potato salads, chips and of course peanuts and cracker jacks!  I also had Big Chew bubble gum in the  gift bags for the little guests to take home.

Here are a few pictures from the party!  Jude's favorite part as always was the CAKE!  His little cake turned out so cute.  I was thrilled!  Cute isn't it?
