Field of Birthday Dreams

I had high hopes of giving Park a cute little construction party this year, complete with a sand pile, caution tape, and enough tools to keep toddlers entertained for hours. Park, on the other hand, wanted a "BEESEBALL PARTY!", and since it was his birthday and all, I caved.

Chris designed little baseball cards of Park, complete with stats and a ticket inviting friends and family to our "stadium". He and Uncle Jake somehow transformed the backyard into Park's very own field of dreams.

For my part, I delegated all responsibility of domestic endeavors to my mom and sister and they definitely did not disappoint. I also put my dad in charge of running all errands and entertaining Park and my sister's two little boys and my in-laws took care of post party demolition.

And the end result was, Park had one of the greatest days of his little life!

We also managed to dope up 18 little people (and their mommies and daddies) on cupcakes, snow cones, crackerjacks, pretzel dogs, and other fine ballpark cuisine. Everyone left with a stomachache, heatstroke, and enough fun to hold them over until next year!

I loved the cupcakes! I think I am going to have to bank that idea for next year. My oldest has been already talking about having a NY Yankees Birthday Party.
