I am finally getting around to posting pictures and details from Bayler's 3rd Birthday Party which was at the end of June. My how the time flies. I know everyone says this, but I feel like it was just a year ago that I brought him home from the hospital. It just makes me so sad to see him grow up, but I am so proud of all he has accomplished in the past few years.
This sweet little boy would not say a word to anyone last year. I mean, nothing. And today, after speach, he has developed a vocabulary that is right on for his age. You would have no idea he was delayed at all. Like I said ... so proud!
This year we through Bayler a Crab Boil Party. You can check out his cute invitation from this post here. We decided to keep it pretty low key, so we invited family and a family friend and her son to join us. Thank goodness too because it was tight quarters there for a while before we braved the heat outdoors. Like most of Bayler's Parties, we had the pool and sprinklers out back for the kids to cool off ... which turned out to be a hit with the little ones!
The crab boil/nautical party was made complete with a blue and white stripped bunting banner from Betty and Barclay. We also served some Ocean Water [blue kool-aid] and Lake Water [sweet tea.] I designed the cake and had it made, the letters were spray painted red from Hobby Lobby. The Nemo Cookies ... the kids help me make them ... which turned out SO cute! And like every party I create, I had to make water bottle labels to match the party!
FYI: Bayler's favorite movie is Nemo, so I thought it would fit perfectly within the nautical party!
Thanks for everyone who make out and made Bayler's Birthday Party so much fun. It was one we will not soon forget! And the kids are already asking for us to have another crab boil!
