The Celebration - Part Two

This year, we decided to have Ethan's birthday party at a local bounce house and - wow - was it FUN!

(For the locals - I highly recommend Bounce U!)

In the days leading up to the party, Ethan would randomly name friends who would be there, but I think it finally sank in once he saw everyone walking through the doors.  He was SO excited!

I said this on Facebook yesterday, but what I love most about looking at the photos from Saturday is that everyone is smiling.  See?

From the kids to the adults, it seemed that everyone was having a genuinely good time! 

After about an hour and a half of sliding...


...and jumping...

...we headed to the party room for cake.

And, my oh my, was there CAKE! Before I even post a photo of this amazing creation, I have to give a huge shout-out to Icing Smiles.  Their mission alone is worthy of admiration, and the time and talent that goes into each of these cakes is awe-inspiring.  This was our baker's first time creating a cake for Icing Smiles, and I'd say she knocked it out of the park.  Wouldn't you?!

Seventeen inches of an incredible, edible Buzz Lightyear! And, it didn't just look great - it tasted great, too! Thank you, Icing Smiles!!

A whole lotta love filled the party room as we sang "Happy Birthday" to Ethan and mingled over buttercream and Goldfish.

Aside from needing a few more square feet in the party room, the morning could not have been any more perfect.  Thank y'all for making his day so special - from the birthday wishes, to the gifts, to your presence alone.

My boy is loved, and I am grateful.
