: Jacob's 6th Birthday :

Back in the first week of June we celebrated Jacob's 6th Birthday.  It was a flight party and we were ready for take off!  I am anti-character parties {at least for my kids} I don't mind if they do basic parties with themes, for example: trains {we're pro @ doing train birthdays}, teddy bears, ducks etc.  but not specific characters like Thomas etc. So this flight party was right up my alley!  

{Warning!  Photo overload!}

Here's the invite to all of his guests
The  front entrance with his current photo along with his treats for each guest
Here are all his friends from his "kids" party :: this afternoon was slightly crazy and I was zapped from all the party prep, kids, food, cakes :: But it was all worth it, JJ came home from school and wouldn't stop squealing about how great everything looked, he noticed every little detail which makes it all worth it!
 Random details from the parties {same set up for both the kids party and family party
 My boy got two cakes {lucky bum!} but unfortunately with all the mayhem of the kids party I neglected to get a photo with my nikon, so here is his second cake from the family party
 Here is Jacob with Grammie & GG {great grandma}
 Daddy & Uncle Jamie doing kitchen work {can't mess with the chef!}
 Grandpa & Papa chilling on the deck :: Thank the Lord for a sunny afternoon!
 Birthday boy in front of the original birthday sign, hoping it lasts through all their growing up years...this is a tradition in our home!
 Opening gifts with Daddy
We got JJ his first baseball glove and ball, he's very excited to start to use it or learn to use it ;)
 Couldn't resist posting this shot of cousin Jack, he was so excited that the sweets were out and cotton candy eating could commence!
 Our family :: Jacob wasn't too sure of the whole sparklers vs. candles on the cake...he tried to be brave but r e a l l y hates fire - ha ha!
And last but not least the thank you's to all the guests for coming to his party
Such a great time of celebration for a beautiful little being that we get to share our lives with! 
On the morning of his birthday I posted this on Instagram the first photo of him and the most current photo on our bed opening presents on the morning of his actual day
Happy Birthday JJ -- We love you a bushel and a peck!
