Weekend Recap// Ethan's 11th Birthday Party

Ethan turns another year older this week and I can't believer how much he has grown up in the past year. I'll save the tears for Wednesday on his actual birthday though...

This Saturday we went to Dave & Buster's to celebrate our little guy. The first time we visited a Dave & Buster's in Buffalo, New York a few of our friends spoiled Ethan and he had the time of his life. He kept asking to go back, but we don't have one close to home in Erie.
After our cruise in May when we got back to Orlando there was a Dave & Buster's close to our hotel and we went again for some food and games. Ethan was in heaven again.
His wish was to have his 11th birthday party at Dave & Buster's so Chuck made it happen.

We took 2 cars full of family & friends to the D&B in Westlake, Ohio and luckily there was no snow so it was a little over an hour roadtrip. Some of Ethan's neighborhood friends, his cousin, his little brother, his mom, uncle, and one set of grandparents were able to make it. The kids (and us adults) had such a good time.

The pictures are the best part of a good Weekend Recap, so I'll let them do the talking.


Party Favors for Ethan's friends...all things Pokemon, and some Pringles!

Ethan M&M's!!!

Ethan M&M's were a hit...especially with his little brother! Adults need party favors too...theirs included some Starbucks coffee too.

CAKE!! Icing, craziness, and more...gotta love our birthday boy!

Blue Beats...daddy makes all wishes come true!

The party wore us out, but the smile on Ethan's face the entire time made it all worth it. I love this dude so much and love sharing in all these fun times with him.

Hope everyone had an awesome weekend.
