Jake's party had an Up theme with balloons and lots of rainbow. There was a hot chocolate bar, rainbow layered Jell-O, red Oreos, M&M's, and sprinkle cupcakes. When we entered the party Carter was immediately interested in the Oreos and I let him have one. Then he was off to play with Jake and his cousin, Andrew. Carter ended up really enjoying Andrew and followed him around, saying "Dew, Dew!" He's a couple months older than Carter and I'm thinking playdates should be in our near future. Carter was also quick to find Adam or "Addy" as he calls him and wanted to play with him and the big kids so he ended up watching them play. Jake opened presents and then dug into his cake. He was hilarious and absolutely loved his cake! He got excited at one point and swung his arms around getting cake all over the floor and the base board. After Jake was done with his cake his mom took him to rinse off in the sink and I got Carter a cupcake which he wanted to sit and eat with the big kids. He cracked me up just eating the icing off the top of the cupcake.

When it was time for cake I decided Carter and I would share a piece since we'd already had cupcakes at Jake's party. The cake was covered in fondant and Carter reached down and peeled the fondant off. He ate 2 bites of cake and the fondant and he was content. I couldn't believe he liked the fondant! After cake Landon opened his presents and then the kids pulled ribbon out of a pinata until it broke. Carter was afraid to walk into the group of kids to get candy and just stood on the outskirts watching. Sweet Landon noticed Carter just standing there and handed him a few pieces. It was the cutest. Once the candy was all picked up Carter walked over and laid down on the floor. I looked and it was 7:45 so I decided we should head home. We helped clean up all the toys and as we were getting ready to head home I noticed Carter had a dirty diaper again! Landon's mom let us have one of his Pull-Ups so Carter wouldn't have to ride home in a diaper full of poop.

On the way home I thought Carter might fall asleep, but he sat in the back singing Baby Baluga. When we got home and I went to get him out of the car he looked at me and said "Dake? Addy?" as though he thought we were going to another party. I laughed and told him no, that we were home and going to see Gma, Gpa, and daddy. He headed into the house full throttle, grabbing a ball and running down the hall screeching. Rocky, Leina, and Ty joked that Carter must've had a good time at the party because he was acting so wild. Luckily he wound down during his bath with Gma and I read him a couple books and rocked him before putting him down to bed. It was a great day and Carter had so much fun celebrating birthdays with all of his friends. We are looking forward to his party in just over a month.
