|A smile that lights up the world!|
It was a busy week preparing for an afternoon ice cream sundae bar, cake, and chocolate fountain party!
Cam and Emma worked with Chris to fill the baseball jersey pinata full of candy. Jane and Cam put together a baseball cup treat for each party-goer under the age of 10.
|Oma & Opa were such a big help!|
|Thanks for making the trek!|
'Auntie' Karen traveled from Chicago for the
special day and it shows that Cam was happy to see her!
Party guests made their own sundaes, had cake, and feasted at the fountain. The pinata was expertly hung from the tree by Chris and every kid under 10 had a shot with a baseball bat. Finally, Cam's buddy, Thad, placed the winning swing which broke the candy holder and the rest was emptied into the hands of the eager kids.
After that excitement, a semi-formal baseball game commenced in the backyard.
Cam and Jane batted together and made it around the bases.
We're not sure who won the game or even if anyone kept score, but all of the players and spectators seemed alright with that.
We are continuously overwhelmed by the love, support and generosity of our family and friends. Cam opened so many wonderful cards and presents- lots of new chapter books, cool games, baseball accessories, and a donation to the WMML...truly, we are grateful to all. Grandma Sue sent a "Cars" blanket, travel Trouble game, funny party glasses, and an activity book, all the way from Kansas. Many Thanks to everyone!
To paraphrase a quote from one of Cam's past favorites, Elmo, "I hope you always find a reason to smile."
Cam smiled his biggest smiles on his 7th birthday!
Find a reason to smile today and every day!!
