sometimes the best parties are just regular ole cookouts with your people. and that's what we did for abe's party. it was the best. summer birthdays are fun.
i texted this invitation to our buds and our parents..
starting the thing off real fancy.
i chose that party animals theme because i really wanted to make tiny party hats for plastic animals.
i don't know why that is so cute to me but i can't get enough.
like i said, we just invited our besties over and we had an abundance of good cookout food. hamburgers with bacon jam, hot dogs, bacon cheddar ranch potato salad, baked beans, watermelon. all the good summer food.
i fixed a texas sheet cake because it feeds a crowd, it is the best and abe doesn't have a preference yet. we ate it with ice cream. because of course we ate it with ice cream.
after we ate every one just hung out. the kids played in the yard with bubbles and sprinklers and the bounce house and whatever they pulled out of the garage.
abe held onto his tiger for dear life while his brothers and friends so graciously opened his presents for him..
it was a fun evening. i always feel so thankful after these parties where we get to be surrounded by the people we love and that love us.
happy birthday abe!
