This past weekend was so much fun celebrating our big 6 year old all weekend! We started off by having our families over for dinner and a little party on Friday (which was his actual birthday) and the celebration continued through Sunday evening with a party for him and his friends! It was all sports all weekend long for this active, sports loving child.
We had a kids party on Sunday at the Athletico Center in Northbrook. They did. such a great job there and I highly recommend it! The kids had a great time playing flag football, soccer, and nerf guns (your choice of 2-3 sports to play). The facility was clean and the staff was great.
Balloon Garland – we DIYed this balloon garland but got both the blue and sports themed balloons from amazon
Party Cups – we, once again, ordered from Sequins and Stripes and absolutely loved our cups! And who doesn’t love a fun (on theme) straw!
Paper Plates – Hunter loved his sports themed plates!
Stationery – invitations & fill in the blank thank you cards are from Ellington Paper Company
Pinata – from Amazon and filled with leftover Halloween candy (haha!)

Update on Hunter
Hunter is always on the go (he has been since the moment he realized he could do things independently)! The energy that this little boy has is on a different level. He is always moving, building, and creating. Hunter is always on the go, unless he is sleeping (or watching TV haha). He loves TV and would probably watch it all day if I let him. Hunter is all boy and loves sports, ninjago, and fighting. He has also recently developed an interest in drawing/coloring – which he is probably better at than I am. He is kind, a listener, the most precious big brother, helpful, and looks up to his dad more than anyone.
Height and Weight
We take him to the dr today so I will update this later – but Hunter is tall and lean!
We are officially into the “competitive” sports phase in our lives. This summer Hunter was in a t-ball league and this fall he was in soccer. But at the moment he is not signed up for anything. Every sport he has tried, he has loved!
He is still the most adventurous eater of the three boys. He loves Filipino food (his request for his birthday dinner with family), seafood, & olives. He will try almost anything and if he doesn’t like something he will usually say something along the lines of, “Mommy I don’t love this but I’m still going to eat this. Please try not to make it again.” haha!
Hunter typically starts his day between 6:30-7:00 but will play quietly in his room until his light turns red (thank you Hatch light for being created!). We still have him go to his room or the basement for quiet play time from about 1:30-3:30. I cannot recommend quiet play time enough – there are SO many benefits from it, for both the child and the parent! We usually have him in bed around 8:30 and he typically is asleep right away!
Happy Birthday Hunter! We love you!
