Racecar Party!

We had Jax's birthday party on Saturday at my parents' house. He chose a racecar theme months ago and I've slowly been prepping things for it since then. Everything turned out so great and Jax had a blast! We did lots of swimming, eating, playing, and relaxing. Jax asked to open his present every 5 seconds. Patience is hard for a 3-year-old! 

Here are some of the party details-

 I decided to do individual servings of everything. We had sliders, mini weenies wrapped in crescent rolls, individual crudites cups with dip, individual pasta salad cups, and a mini fruit pizza bar. 

I made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes instead of a larger cake. 

We served lemonade, water, and tea. 

I saw this cute idea on Pinterest. Hang balloons upside down from a string to make balloon garland... no helium required! 

Ryan made a race track out of painters tape on the ground

 I ordered these printables from Etsy. They turned out so cute!

Favors buckets with chalk, bubbles and candy 


On his actual birthday, we surprised him with a balloon-filled room when he woke up

We went to church then headed to Mimi's for brunch

After brunch, we packed up and drove back home. It was such a great weekend and I can't believe it's already over! Now we are just counting down the days until Lexi gets here!
