Take me out to the ball game….
Take me out to the crowd…..
Hudson’s official birthday party was this past Saturday – and what a glorious day for baseball. All guests were asked to wear their favorite team’s colors, and we were happy to see a lot of Philly red and white among the crowd.As friends and family arrived, the kiddos were “tatted up”, played and colored pictures of baseball players and equipment. Even Great - Grandmom Smith joined in on the fun with a baseball tattoo on her cheek…she’s a cheeky one, I tell ya! (hehehe) Chris and his grandmoms supervised the play from the upper deck grandstand, and made sure the “dawgs” were properly prepared for the ballpark concession stand. The birthday boy and his pals certainly had a lot of fun – especially making a train down the slide. After the pre-game show, the concession stand opened for ballpark fare….can’t have a ball game party without soft pretzels fresh from the Philly side of town! We played a game where the kids were blindfolded, spun and had to stick their baseball on a “base” on the field that Daddy drew. It was fun…some kiddos asked to go again…and again….Daddy and Mom-Mom supporting their team proudly.
The cutest 6 year old on the planet blowing out his candles and making his wish….the wish? He told me he wished that the cupcake would be delicious…how funny is that?!?! (Note to self: sparkling candles kinda freak out even a 6 year old.)
We love our family – they make us feel so loved and special….and they are all Phils Phans (never mind Anna’s costume change into her Ariel Mermaid. She was dressed in red at one point.)
L-R: Poppy, Chris, Mom-Mom, Anna, Great-Grandmom Smith, Grandmom, Hudson, Beth, Great Grammy May Hudson’s favorite things from his party? He can’t get enough of his new Playmobil Airplane (yes, he still wants to be a pilot), his new Legos and all of his games. We’ve played a lot of Dog-opoly, Clue Jr. and Buzz Lightyear Operation recently! Phew! We had a blast, but us Smith ball players were plumb tuckered out. Everyone took a nap….and I couldn’t help but snap a picture of these two before I woke them up for dinner.
