Last week my good friend, Sarah and I threw a combined birthday party for our boys, Tab and Alex. It was supposed to be a pool party but it never got warm enough for them to open the pool. So we ended up just having a little shindig at the pavilion outside of the pool. We brought soccer nets and such and just let the kids run around and play.
Because we weren't able to play in the pool, the party mostly revolved around eating the cake and opening presents. It was a little pirate party, so I made a Pirate ship cake. I was a little worried about how it was going to turn out, but I think it came out great! Here are Alex and Tab with some other friends and the cake.Side views of the cake, just in case you wanted to see some of the details.Tab kept asking me if it was time to sing happy birthday to him yet. He has been to a few other parties for friends recently and I guess that the singing was his favorite part. He was SOOO excited when we started singing to them.

One of his friends gave each of the boys a balloon with money in them. Tab loved stomping on the balloon to get his money. The balloon popped right before I snapped the picture.And finally, a picture of my little pirate! Happy Birthday Bucko!
