It was a birthday kind of weekend. Here are a few photos from Hudson's second birthday party - a party that was about the cutest thing you've ever seen. Something about the perfectly still fall air and being surrounded in the beautiful botanical gardens, along with the homemade animal masks, teepees and moccasins running around made me feel as if I was transported into the Where the Wild Things Are. The light, the ambiance, the calmness amidst the chaos... something, and I wasn't the only one feeling this way. And although this day could go down in the books as the naughtiest of all naughty days for little Jude boy we still managed to have a very nice time. A table full of cinnamon crumb donuts, mini s'mores tarts, a barrel of apples, pumpkin pie bars and Jude's favorite - large pretzel sticks didn't hurt either. Jude gave Hudson a mini backpack just like his own and colored him a card. These boys are becoming the best of friends and it's pretty great to watch them grow.
