~ 5 YEARS ~

Five years...can't be. My Hudson is 5, and we celebrated BIG! We had his party on September 4th at Turner Field. One of my dear friends and sorority sister, Missy, joined us and captured our day on film. We met at the Hank Aaron statue at 11:15 to distribute tickets. Then we all headed inside to the All Star Braves party room where we had hot dogs, chips, sodas, and cake! After our time in the party room was over, we distributed electric hand held fans, cracker jacks, and bottled waters for everyone to have during the game. The kids all received a Braves hat, a foam tomahawk, and a few tokens for Scout Alley. Game time was 1:35 and the Braves played the Dodgers. Braves won with a last minute run in the 9th inning! It was a GREAT game!!!!

We have a rather large family, so there were quite a few (33) of us in attendance. Here are a few of Hudson's guests.

After Sunday home games, the kids can go down and run the bases. So, Josh, Shawn, & Jace got the "dad of the day" award for standing in line with the kids so they could run the bases. They had to get in line in the 7th inning and the Braves scored all 4 of their runs for this game after the dads were in they basically missed the game. They were trying to keep up on their phones. :) Below is a picture of Hudson running the bases.

It was a great day, and we had a great time! We were so glad we celebrated at Turner Field this year. It is a birthday he will always remember, and we have amazing pictures from that day! He told me that night that it was "the best birthday party EVER!" Totally made everything worth it!

And this is just a little sneak of what is to come. Missy and I discussed what I wanted to commemorate this mile marker for Hudson, and I told her I thought it would be amazing if he had like a comic style story board from his birthday party! She is still working on it, and I can't wait to see what she puts together! I love her style, and she is extremely creative! I think it will be a really cool piece of art for him to have.

Hudson is the sweetest 5 year old. He is smart, funny, loving, sensitive, and full of energy! He loves playing his Wii, riding his bike, playing outside, Batman, & Bakugans. He loves school and learning. He surprises us all the time with what he remembers and knows! He loves vegetables and could be a vegetarian. He loves Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, & Smurfs cartoons. He loves to wrestle with his daddy and help take care of his brother! He is pretty much the coolest kid I know. We are so excited to watch him grow, and feel so blessed that God picked us to be his parents!!! Happy Birthday, Huddy Buddy!!!
