pizza party- make your own pizza stationWe have officially started transitioning into a new phase of birthday parties (at least with Burke)- to a more ‘big kid’ version. This year’s party was a smaller crowd (and no parents), with less organized activities (though, they played HARD in the neighborhood pool for the first half of the party) and no theme (unless ‘pizza party’ counts as a theme).

Seriously, just adore them. Bring on pizza parties and the other big kid stuff!
