He likes golf.

By the 3rd party, little boys and girls usually have some sort of opinion about what kind of party they want. Pax chose GOLF! He loves golf. I think that I've mentioned it here before, but he has been known to putt his blueberries across the table with his fork. He's clever and knows how to make a mundane breakfast extra fun. ;) So we discussed all other interests and possibilities, which really consisted of Super Man and baseball. And at one point he was pushing for Super Man/Golf, but I was mean and made him choose between the two. The golf themed party was fun and I was happy for his choice. I figured that with his August birthday it would probably be too hot to do much outside. I was wrong. It wasn't too hot, but it was rainy and wet.  So we ate some golf-like snacks, played pin the golf ball in the hole and then Pax opened his presents and we ended by celebrating with cupcakes. I think he loved every moment of his party. And it was fun to watch him take it all in. A few pictures from our fun.
The golf like snacks - irons and woods (the pretzle rods), the greens (green fruit), birdies (the Target brand of goldfish, called chicakdess) and hole in one (donut holes). I was half embarrassed by the time I was done with this part. Pax had no clue of the significance of those fun snacks. So who did I really do that for? :)

 He loved opening presents. What kid doesn't!
I loved watching his sweet smile as we sang to him. Man, I love that little boy!

Happy birthday buddy! I hope your day felt as special to you as you are to us!
