We celebrated Davey's 3rd birthday September 19th with lots of family and friends. We did a Hot Wheels theme for his party and he's still talking about it 2 months later. He'll say things like, "I want to go back to my party." ;) He LOVES Hot Wheels cars and monster trucks, so it was the perfect party for him. We got smart and had the party in our community room this year. It was a lot of fun!
Michael and I made this race car track for Davey for his birthday. I was inspired from THIS post on Pinterest and it turned out awesome!
The legs are on hinges so we can just fold them down when we're not using it.
I made this car photo booth the morning of Davey's party. I know, I'm a crazy person! But it turned out so cute. This idea came from another Pinterest POST.

Davey handed out Hot Wheels blind bags for party favors. My kids love blind bags!
And of course, we had a piñata. I recently asked Clara if she was ok skipping the piñata for her upcoming birthday party and she said, "but then it wouldn't be a real party." ;) I think we have a tradition on our hands!
I based the food on concessions you could get at a race track with a few fruit and veggies thrown in for good measure.
We had nachos with all the toppings...
"stop light" fruit kebabs
"dip stick" veggies
all beef hot dogs and pretzels
Based on the lack of leftovers, the food was a hit!
loved his "3" racetrack cupcake cake

I love this picture my brother Jordan took of Abigail and Mom capturing the gift opening for me. I really appreciated their help!
Clara even got a present from Grandma Ann! :)
My brother Jordan took this awesome picture. :)
It was a great party! Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate and love on Davey! He felt pretty special and had the best time. We love you all!
