Hudson's FOURTH birthday!!!

I don't know where the time has gone, but my baby is now FOUR! I think it is safe to say, he had a WONDERFUL birthday!! Since his birthday was on a Saturday this year, we decided to do his party on the actual day. It was so fun having him wake up to family already being here and then get ready to go his party!

Here is the birthday boy running out of his room!

He immediately wanted to open some presents. :)
Definitely one of his faves...

After playing and eating breakfast, we headed to his party. He started telling me MONTHS ago that he wanted his party at the same place as last year. He NEVER waivered, so that is where we had it! Since he is really in to Buzz Lightyear, the theme was an easy choice.

The kids watching the safety video before bouncing.

Very serious stuff here.

Then, the bouncing began. I thought I got a picture of all of his friends, but of course I didn't. Oops!

Hudson got in and played with the big boys!

The giant slide was definitely a favorite!

The big kids liked the slide too! :)

Lining up to go to the next bounce room.

The spider climber was the favorite in the second room.

Next, we headed to the party room.

Hudson's party favors this year were Hershey bars with Buzz Lightyear wrappers.

Buzz cupcakes and decorations. :)

Singing to the birthday boy.

Cupcake time!

After the party, we went to lunch and Hudson took a much needed nap. When he woke up, he was ready to roll...

After riding his scooter and playing with his new toys, we headed to Amazing Jakes. His day kept getting better and better!

Being four rocks!

Posing with Aunt Shani and Mommy. Look at those wild eyes...somebody was TIRED!

Hudson turning FOUR was a blast for all of us! It was so special being able to spend his actual birthday with most of his close friends and family.

Happy Engagement!

This weekend we headed up to Oklahoma for my brother's engagement party. We were SO excited to celebrate Geoff & Tara and can't wait for the wedding this next summer!!

Tara & cute are they?!?

Shani and I

Notice the clouds in the sky. Yes, it RAINED on us right as the party was starting. Did I mention the party was outside? It hasn't rained in months, but decided to Saturday night. Crazy weather! The good thing was that it cooled things off, which was fabulous!

Two sets of sisters: Shani & I with Tara & Jen


After a toast, Geoff told the story of how he and Tara met and how he proposed. It was very sweet!

Can't remember what was said here, but I know everyone was laughing and I'm pretty sure this is my favorite picture from the night!

Love you two and couldn't be happier for you both!!
