Party Recap

My family are quite the baseball fanatics. After having my son Austin, we hoped that he would enjoy it like us. At 10 months he was already hitting the ball off of a tee, so of course we had to do a baseball themed birthday party!

My son wore a custom raglan shirt and them my husband, parents, brother, and myself all wore red, white, and blue Texas Rangers jerseys to go with the theme.

We have a pool so it was also a pool party. Before going to the pool we set up a baseball slip-n-slide to keep the kiddos entertained until we were done eating and opening presents. We even had 20 blow up baseballs out in the pool.

One of my favorite things was the guest book which was a customized Louisville Slugger that everyone signed. A friend of mine also made him a custom baseball that was embroidered with name, birth date and time, and weight. Also something that we will treasure and now hangs in my sons room is the field sign that my Dad made for the party and my son.

The concession stand had hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, candy bars, cracker jacks, popcorn, Big League Chew, and cotton candy. We also had mini Texas Rangers helmets to eat ice cream out of.
