Levi's 4th Birthday Party

^^My favorite 4 year old!^^

Summer has got to be the best time of year to celebrate a birthday!  There are just so many fun things to do and the party doesn't end until the sun goes down--well after 9:00PM.  It's like a dream!  I know I spoil my kids from time to time, but I just can't help it; they are my whole world.  And so a party at Bass Lake to celebrate Levi's 4th birthday was planned!  Levi picked three of his little friends and we invited them and their families down to our favorite summer paradise for pizza, swimming, paddle boarding, fishing, cake, and a pinata stuffed full of candy.  The weather was warm, the sun was shining, and I'm pretty sure it was a party riot success for everyone!

Here are a couple dozen colorful pictures to prove it.  

That fishing dock is always overrun with boys big and small.  I find it funny.  Jed literally spends hours out there catching fish with hot dogs.  That night, our friend Carson caught a little blue gill and it was eaten by a giant bass while it was still on the line!  A rare two for one catch!  So incredibly cool.

^^Friendly little Addy being a goober for the camera.^^
^^The water slide and splash down never gets old.^^
^^Warming up in the sunshine.^^

A chocolate cake smothered in M&M's with four green candles!  Forget over-the-top Pinterest themed birthdays.  I think I convinced Levi that a simple party with a plain homemade cake is just as good if not better!  It's the company of friends that really makes the party fun anyway.
^^Sneaking a second piece, Jed?^^
^^Kissing that "big fat baby!"^^
^^Levi gently telling his best friend Abram that it's time to open presents.  Haha.^^
^^Looking over the Lego box.  I loove their faces!^^
 ^^Yeah, kill it, Levi!  Hahaha.^^
 ^^Late evening swim for Kyle and Levi.^^
 ^^Ally and Jed partying it up on the fishing dock together.^^

The last but certainly not least adventure of the night was when Ally caught a turtle on a hook!  No way!  He slipped off pretty fast but it was an amazing catch nonetheless.  Ally and Jed talked about it for dayyys afterwards.

^^The sun had set and it was time to go home.^^

A big thanks to everyone who came out to help make Levi's day so fun and special for him!  Happiest of birthdays, Levi!  You make me one proud and happy Mama.  I could say so many sappy things about how I don't know what our family would do without your energetic and happy personality, or how you make me feel like I'm your whole world, or how you're a vessel of talent waiting to be unleashed.  Instead, I'll just say I'm just looking forward to what this year will bring.  It's going to be another good one.


  1. It looks like it was a fantastic 4th birthday! Can't wait to see you this weekend.

  2. Oh my goodness your photos are unreal, as usual! Looks like the perfect birthday!

  3. Levi's 4th outdoor Birthday Party was just stunning I am in love with these wonderful clicks. In this post I have got some ideas for my own son’s birthday. Now we just have to book a good and suitable LA venue for this bash. Hoping to find a right spot within our budget.


I love hearing from you! Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
