Wild Man Birthday Party

After getting a tiny bit settled into our new house, we threw a birthday party for the boys. We wanted to see all our friends that we haven’t gotten to see in a long time. It was so much fun having so many so close again. My boys are adventurous wild men as I call them. Always getting dirty, climbing things, loving nature and being outside. So I wanted a Wild Man theme. I have seen on pinterest Wild One parties for a first birthday and Young, Wild and Three for third birthdays, so I combined the two into one giant Wild Man birthday party. I had two smash cakes made and cupcakes for the rest of the party people.Β The Flying Cupcake BakeryΒ did the most wonderful job interpreting my theme into the cupcakes and cakes. I found some shops on etsy for the super cute banners and made my own Wild One cake topper for Liam. I just glued, with wood glue, some wooden letters together from a craft store and let them dry. Then painted them with sparkly golden paint. It was super easy. I think I’ll make custom cake toppers for every birthday cake!20171006_221818





For the Wild Men and their friends, we got a bouncy house and it was a TON of fun! Even us moms and dads wore ourselves out in the bouncy house. Our only family picture we got was not in front of the cute decorations that I planned but instead in the bounce house which was much more fitting to remember this day.


We wanted to thank everyone that came out to celebrate with us. We had so much fun! This week we have been busy with tons of Halloween and fall fun. I cannot wait to share all our new Indiana adventures with you all.

Until next week, XOXO.

Liam is One!

It has been the fastest year of my life! How is this little guy already turning one?!! We have quite alot going on right now so Liam’s Wild One birthday party is going be a little later. We did have a little party with just us because I did not want him to feel forgotten about. He’s my wild, curious, climbing, walking, laughing, clapping, temper tantrum throwing, sneaky mister. Happy First Birthday baby Liam!

I wanted to share his monthly photos over the past year. He’s grown and changed so much.





Now it really starts getting hard to continue the laying down pictures…

I cannot wait to have a big birthday party for both the boys and invite all our friends! Until next week, XOXO.

Jake’s First Birthday

Let’s just say things did not turn out exactly how I pictured it would for Jake man’s birthday. It was good we live so far away, so not many people had to see my dripping failed cupcake icing. I thought you all would enjoy knowing not everything turns out Pinterest Perfect. Haha. Besides my failed cupcake icing (which on the plus side, I could blame on the Florida heat and humidity); my mom and dad had quite a bit of traffic coming from Indiana and they pretty much missed most of the afternoon. But we were very happy they arrived safe and sound. We waited to do the cake smash until they made it down. It would not be fun for grandma and grandpa to miss the cake smash. The late evening Β and rain really made some bad lighting for cake smash pictures but I think I got a few good ones. Most importantly Jake had a wonderful time. He got to play in his new splash pad, then splash in some mud the splash pad made, lots of swimming, tasty treats, and lots of playing with his cousin!
