A special post all about Jake's party, and this whole thing is devoted just to him since his Dad and lil' brother Casey couldn't be there.
Another Birthday to celebrate, this time it was Jake's special day.
Turning the big 9 this time around and that leaves one more year
in his little life that he will be a single digit.
We all piled into a local park, with friends and family everywhere.
Smiles were a flowin'
with a Baseball cupcake cake none the less.
The gifts were ripped open with much anticipation.
And to say he was surprised was a understatement.
And when you dream big. , sometimes gifts mean a little bit more.
I couldn't get Sabathia from the NY Yankees to come give pitching
lessons, but I could get a message from him to Jake.
And this smile made it all worth it.
Moments were taken to pose with brothers.
Time was took to read the cards aloud.
And puppies needed to be opened. Sabathia is his new name. How fitting.
And in case your wondering, this lil guy loves baseball and the NY Yankees.
He's got the pro fit hat, batting gloves, backpack and special message from
Sabathia to keep his baseball love alive.
During the downtime we had some tennis to play.
There were some great fairy jumps, Andre Agassi grunts and shirtless wonders ..
Sorry, I could really try to put it into words, but it was one of those you had to be there moments...
A few other moments captured ..
Happy Birthday my lil Jake. Seeing you grow another year older, into the young man you are becoming is a true gift.
