When I asked Sully what kind of birthday party he wanted this year he said Superheros. Fitting. He also asked if his party could be at a local venue that costs a small fortune. With all of the traveling we've been doing this summer, a party like that wasn't in the budget. Plus, I just want to be home these days, sucking the sweet juice out of summer, what's left of it. He wanted his friends from school - girls mostly - and a few of his closest neighbor pals. He wanted to run through a sprinkler and do superhero moves in our backyard kiddie pool. I wanted to make Smitten's peach cupcakes with brown sugar frsoting, the same cupcakes I made for his first birthday, the first cake he'd ever tasted. I wanted to pick and slice cucumbers from our garden morning of and make ranch dip.
It was a great party. It was everything sweet I think of when I think about little one's and summertime.
