We have enjoyed celebrating Carter the last few weeks - yes, I said weeks. His birthday was August 26 and we celebrated with baseball cupcakes to school and supper at Rice (Los Portales) in town. It was a great day. I got out of planning a party when we struck a deal with the boy. He had been asking if we were going to go to a baseball game this summer and we told him at the time we probably would not be able to. Once we saw we could, we told him we would go to a Braves game for his birthday party. Of course he jumped all over that, so no official party was planned. We did grill out and got an ice cream cake the weekend after his birthday. We loved celebrating our very special Carter and were very blessed to have both sets of grandparents there to celebrate with us.
