It's taken me well over a month now to finally get this post finished because I've been SO busy, but of course I wanted to document Hudson's third birthday and share some pictures from the Hot Wheels themed party that we had for his special day! It was just a simple family gathering in our home, but Hudson LOVED it and that's what was most important. Those who know Hudson, know that he is an absolute Hot Wheels fanatic or even more-so, just a car fanatic in general, so he was ecstatic about having a Hot Wheels themed party even though we didn't go all out as far as decorations or anything like that goes. Just a few simple decorations and paper supplies donning the Hot Wheels motif and he was as happy as a clam! Of course one of his favorite parts besides all of the cool toys and other wonderful gifts he received, was the FABULOUS Hot Wheels cake that his Aunt Debbie made for him! He was over-the-top excited about his Hot Wheels cake (and the party in general), that he has talked about it ever since! We made traditional BBQ dishes for dinner and then open presents and had cake and just relaxed and hung out as a family. It was great and Hudson had an absolute ball!
