Bryce and I will be forever grateful to a birth mom and birth dad who decided to place their baby boy for adoption. They have both been so loving and supportive over the past 7 years. We have grown to love and appreciate them more and more with each passing year. They are amazing people and we love them dearly.
We had to keep reminding the kids to stay back, especially when the candy started falling out of the pinata. Tyler had his blind fold on and he was still going to town on the pinata. He finally busted it open and then all the kids were able to collect the candy! Afterward, we let Cooper take many swings at the pinata. He actually did a good job and connected every time he swung the bat!Cooper was surrounded by kids wanting him to hurry and open their presents. He received many nice gifts, but his favorite present was a "Happy Napper" monkey that Jordan and Tyler gave him. My favorite gifts for him was the Wilson Glove and baseball from Jacqui, and the Nerf Football and Aerobie Frisbee from mom and dad! Now, maybe he can be a little more active and work on some of his athletic abilities!The last, but most important part of the birthday party, was the cake and ice cream. Cooper successfully blew out his seven candles. We cut the cake and the kids enjoyed it with ice cream. We decorated the cupcakes with Wild Kratts creature power discs. This was a hit with the kids. Overall, it turned out to be a great party. The kids had a great time and we did activities that were unique and fun. I enjoyed decorating the cake and planning the activities, but I was so exhausted when it was all over. Bryce brought pizza home at 6 and I told him I wanted to spend the rest of the night in front of the TV.....and that I did!
