Ball of a Birthday Party

I did a sports ball theme for Marshall's birthday party: footballs, baseballs, soccer balls, basketballs, you get the picture. We had our family over for soup, salad, cake and ice cream to celebrate. Jesse and I made his cake.(Jenn, please don't critique my cake decorating skills too harshly.)We told him to smile after blowing out the candles and this is what we got. Although he did not enjoy opening his presents (that would require him to sit still for far too long) he has enjoyed wearing / playing with them. He got tons of great gifts: clothes, pajamas, cowboy boots, a tool box with a drill, Iron Man car, sports balls, and a Doodle Pro to name a few. Jesse and I gave him a new bike to ride.Our happy family relaxing after all the chaos.The following day we took him to Jumpin' Jacks. He had no fear and didn't even think twice about going down the huge slides.
Savannah came with us and she was a big help. Thanks for chasing him around for us Savannah!He had a blast and it was so nice to be able to just let him run around and be as crazy as he wanted to be.Good times!

I was just thinking what a great cake it was, perfect for a little boy, and then I saw my name. You make me laugh Christa :) It was a terrific cake, and I bet it tasted good too.
