The 3 Birthday Race Car Party {That Didn't Happen}

Sometimes you have the best intentions and then life happens.  I had all the party supplies, cupcakes, and everything else needed for the perfect race car birthday ready to go.....then Friday night happened.  Connor was up all night with a croupy cough.  My sister, Vinny, and Jarrett were in town already and my Mom and Dad got in late Friday.
 
Everyone was here!  Terence, Connor, and I got about 3 hours of sleep Friday night.  Needless to say Saturday wasn't going much better and you could just tell Connor boy wasn't feeling good.  I made the decision to cancel the party.  I know a party is not what's important, it's being surrounded by the people you love and having fun!  And we had just that.
 
Later in the weekend Jarrett got sick and my Mom started feeling bad :-/  What is going on with the allergies already TX???  "Ain't nobody got time for that!"
 
Here is my big 3 year old....

 Here are the race car cupcakes I made.  They were really easy.  I just dipped them in melted chocolate chips and then rolled them in crushed mint oreos.  I wanted it to look like a race track :-)

 They love each other so much.  Connor keeps asking where everyone went....waaaah!
 My sister found these shirts at Old Navy.  Aren't they so cute???
Later that day we headed out to the park with my family and T's family came over too, along with cousins Alicia & Ellie.  I got some confetti eggs for the kids to play with.  They sell them in grocery stores now.

Ugh....it was sooooo windy.  Just so you know I didn't get the Miley Cyrus haircut....that would be the wind. Thank.You.

We had a great time!  I miss my family already, and although everything didn't go according to plan we got to visit and make memories we'll never forget.
