Austin's 5th Birthday

Austin turned 5 in April! I know, I know, it's a little late! But, better than never.
So, he decided to have a baseball party. This was his first BIG party. Usually we'll just have family and a friend over for supper and cake. So, this time he got to invite friends from school and church over to play. Austin was so excited! He's such a social boy anyways and just Loves to have friends over to play. Ever since he could talk he would invite people over to his house by saying, "You come to my house?"

Here's little bother, Coop, playing right along with all the big kids.
The Birthday boy with his game face on!

The parent had the "cheap seats". Lawn chairs lined both sides of the house to watch the games.

Pappy joined in the fun too!

As a take home gift, each child received a bag of Cracker Jacks with a song attached. Thanks to Mom's creative mind, she came up with new words to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame". The song thanked them for coming and told them there was more to come. A couple weeks after the party each child got a thank you note with a baseball card pack, completed with a piece of pink bubble gum. The cards were of each child at the party.

Chocolate baseball cupcakes!

Yellow cake baseball diamond!

Of course we had ball park food! Hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, boiled peanuts, and popcorn!
