Colson's Birthday Party

Wow, what a fun and busy weekend! Yesterday we crashed. ; )
Colson had a red wagon party.
 We gave these push-up pop cupcakes for favors. So cute!
 They were easy to make, it just took me awhile. I kept getting distracted doing other things for the party.
I was so happy Mandy came for the race, and it was just a bonus she was at Colson's party, too. She's amazing.
My parents and Jason's parents are always such a HUGE help when they come see us. I'm so thankful for them!
Best family pic of the night...ya'll know how this is. ; )
The kids loved playing in the sprinkler and little pool.

This may be one of my favorite pictures of Zach. What a handsome face!
Colson was so excited when we sang to him and about his cupcake. He couldn't quite blow out the candles so Zach helped a little bit.
Hope ya'll had a good weekend, too! 

Can you believe school is right around the corner? I'm on the hunt for a backpack for Zach. Let me know if you have any cute but not too babyish ideas. It's hard! ; )

*Colson's shirt is from Cantaloupe Corner.

...for the fruit of the light results in all goodness, righteousness, and truth - discerning what is pleasing to the Lord.

Cute party! Your boys are so precious ~ I have girls, so I can only imagine how tired you are most of the time ha! I think your boys look a lot like their grandmas ~ Zach like Jason's mom and Colson like yours. Have a blessed week!

We always get our backpacks from LL Bean. They are very durable, can be embroidered and have cute colors. My boys just wish they'd wear out so they could get new ones!!! Love the Radio Flyer party!!!

Cute ideas! It looks like the guest of honor had a great time!

Pottery Barn Kids has the cutest backpacks and you can customize them with different patches, designs and fonts for his name. They hold up so well and are worth the cost!

I love the push pop cupcakes! I saw that on Pinterest, I just haven't been brave enough to attempt them. :) I love the wagons too. Colson is just as cute as ever, as well as Zach. I'm glad you had such a wonderful weekend.

Happy Monday!

Have you heard of Veryjane? It's a cute site that has handmade daily deals. It's free to sign up and if you scroll down the page you will see back packs on sale for the next 7 hours so you have to hurry if you want one. They are animals and cute

I love the theme! I got Noah's backpack from Pottery Barn kids. They had a lot of cute options. We ended up with the airplanes one but it was hard to pick!

Love the wagon theme! Super cute! I sell Thirty-One, and we have some great backpacks but they are probably too big for your boys. I got my 2-year-old a backpack last year from Lands End and got my 6-year-old one from LL Bean. Both have held up great!

Hey Katie!! You are cute as ever and the party looks like a hit:) LOVE his sweet hands holding that cupcake in the last picture. Have you ever seen the little backpacks at company kids? pretty cute!

We got a backpack with matching lunch box at POTTERY BARN KIDS. Super cute and free shipping right now! Personalized embroidery is only $7. Super cute and classy!

Maryellen said...

Oh my Colson's eye lashes - wow
Looks like he really enjoyed his party.

I ended up with a new Pottery Barn backpack & lunch box for Hudson, but check out my friends shop on Facebook. "The Embroidery Boutique" She has a couple of seersucker & gingham backpacks that are really cute. She can put an applique or monogram on there if you so choose.

Linds said...

your boys are SO handsome!

Both of my boys have Pottery Barn backpacks and I love them. They are really sturdy, and very cute! I've gotten both of mine on sale and they were pretty reasonable in price.

What an adorable party! I love the wagon theme--what a cute idea! And I think I'm going to have to make those cute push-up pop cupcakes at our next party! I love the picture of you and little Colson when he's at his table with the cupcake!

Candy Johnson said...

Dang, sorry we missed it for our kid-free weekend, but I did enjoy licking the icing off my fingers from the cake pops. They were delish! And, apparently, the boys said you were the best cake-pop cooker ever! ha!

Jessica said...

Lands end is the best and try are completely guaranteed. Anything rips tears or breaks they replace it no questions asked. Plus they monogram :)

Ashley said...

Oh my goodness those decorations are too cute! What a fun birthday party!

Tess said...

Cute, Cute. I really want to know how you made the cake "push ups". My boys love push up sherbert pops and I think they would love that! My youngest will turn 3 on Halloween. So I think it would be cute to make. Thanks so much! :)

Miranda said...

Is your dress from bebe? I have been looking for the bebe maxi dress that looks just like that. If it isn't a bebe dress please let me know where you got it. I love those colors!

Melanie Mueller said...

What a fun party!!!! Love it! And the picture of Zach--SUPER handsome!!
Your big 2 year old is ADORABLE!!!!

Backpacks....I have ordered from both Pottery Barn and L.L.Bean. They have several sizes and designs. They both also have the matching lunchbox. I have to be honest--L.L. Bean holds up better for us but they are both good quality. I love back to school shopping, just not the back to school part.=)
