one and three || birthday party for our boys

We had a birthday lunch party with all our family for both boys over the weekend, and it was so much fun. My brother and I have had our birthday party together for as long as i can remember, and I love it that way, so we decided to start doing the same for our boys since their birthdays are pretty close together. I loved watching them blow out their candles, make a huge mess with their cake, and get so excited about all the people and presents!  Birthdays are pretty magical when you are a kid.

We had the best food, thanks to our family. We typically have hot dogs and fixings for birthday lunches, but with rain in the forecast we opted for Chickfila chicken nuggets with tons of yummy sides...baked macaroni and cheese, potato salad, baked beans, and raw veggies, plus a few little snacks, too. 

 Two cakes, of course! One lemon, one vanilla, both with vanilla buttercream.
