Baseball Bashes

This is is what a group of 10 - 5 year olds, 2 - eight year olds, and a three year look like playing tee our 5 year old's birthday party!

Tyler is 5!!! Of course...we have been doing some serious celebrating. Since we love a good celebration, we had 2 - a family party and a friend party. Tyler's passion for baseball made his summer birthday celebrations easy - baseball all the way.

We began the week celebrating with family on his actual birthday - with a picnic on Nate's rooftop and to the Twin's game. Thanks to Nate for sharing his rooftop patio with us. Thanks to the Twin's for kicking some White Sox bootie!

Then tonight....the friend party. We had a ballpark, ballpark food, and ballpark activities. Tyler loves his friends. Tyler loves his baseball. It was a perfect night.

Of Course, There Were Baseball Cupcakes

Singing of Happy Birthday

Thanks Friends for a Fun Night

The family party started at Nate's Rooftop Patio. It was a perfect location, a few blocks from the Metrodome.
We Enjoyed a Picnic on a Beautiful Day

More Baseball Cake - This Time a Baseball Cap and Ball

Then to the Game to Watch the Twins Beat the White Sox 13-5

To Top Off - The Kids Got to Run the Bases After the Game

At age 5, Tyler is full of passion, heart, enthusiasm, care, and love for his friends and family. He has learned to be a great friend, a caring big brother, and a loving son. I can't wait to see what the next 5 years brings to our lives with him in it! Happy Birthday, Ty -Do!
