A Slam-Dunk Sports Party

Walker is obsessed with just about all sports, so when it came time to pick a theme for his fifth birthday party, any and all sports was the perfect idea!

I rented a local park this past Saturday for Walker's sports party and it was a beautiful day with perfect temperatures for playing outside! Walker invited all of his friends from school along with his neighborhood buddies and they played baseball, basketball, climbed on the playground and tore open a basketball-shaped pinata that was filled with sports-shaped candy with a golf club!

Guests received orange paper bags filled with their pinata loot along with sports-shaped eggs filled with candy. We served sports drinks and sports-themed water, along with chips, ice cream and yummy cake that I spent several nights last week making. And let's not forget the fabulous ball-shaped cake-pops made by the wonderful Baker's Cakes!

I can't believe my little guy is five!
The time truly does fly by, but it has been a blast and we've had a ball!
