Austen's 11th Birthday Party

Austen turns 11 this week and he celebrated yesterday with some of his closest friends - his soccer teammates. Lots of time spent together, tournaments here and abroad and just a genuine group of good kids has Austen counting his teammates as some of his closest friends and that's who he wanted to celebrate with for his last big friend birthday party. (I know the feeling as I still count the girls who I played soccer with more than 30 years ago as some of my dearest friends and I still get together with them throughout the year to catch up.)

So I needed to plan an unforgettable party for these 10 and 11 year olds. We chose an indoor fun factory that included laser tag, go carts, bumper cars, an extensive ropes course/zip line, rock climbing wall and arcade.

We were there for three hours and they were busy running from activity to activity! He said it may have been his best party yet and I think a lot of that was probably because he was surrounded by his teammates/best friends.

Cheers to you Austen on almost turning 11 (on Thursday). You're a great kid who works hard at everything you do from school to soccer to any other sport you're playing. You're kind (unless you're dealing with Peyton). You're responsible and you're organized.

I couldn't have asked for a better first born. And, yes, I decided to be a stay at home mom because of you (mainly)! And, yes, I promise not to go back to work until you're in college (future blog post material).
