Maddox is Three!

Last weekend we celebrated Maddox's third birthday with a BBQ at our new home. His actual birthday was a few weeks ago, but because of the madness of moving we planned to have his party a little late.

Of course Maddox insisted on a CARS themed birthday party. He was very specific in wanting Francesco plates and a Lightning McQueen piƱata. Considering the time crunch, I think we managed to pull off a pretty sweet party! The best part was getting to see all of my family in one place (which doesn't happen often). We missed our bay area friends, but I know they were all there in spirit :-)

I of course forgot to take pictures of all of the food, etc. But I was able to get some of the decorations, and my wonderful mom took "action shots." Overall it was a hot, but wonderful day!

Poster board + coffee filters + spray paint = awesome almost 3 ft. tall #3

Sweet checkerd flag pendants

Is it possible to make it through a birthday party without being roped into buying massive themed balloons? Don't think so.

Dark chocolate salted caramel cupcakes with drifter cars on top, and Strawberry Lemonade cupcakes with checkered flags. Quite possibly some of the best cupcakes I've ever made! Yuuuuum 

Dollar Store balloons and table cloths = amazing over hang decor.

The pinata ended up being a bit of a bust, so it turned into and all out beat down.

A bit anticlimactic, but the kids didn't seem to mind.
Birthday boy playing with some of his new toys. Thank you everyone!!
Lola was happy to be snuggled all day long 

Cousin time!
