When it comes to planning birthday parties, less is more. I don’t mean less party, I mean less stress. Bowie’s first birthday party was at Zilker Park with Torchy’s tacos, Sprinkles cupcakes and a few balloons. His second birthday was at Central Market’s playground where we purchased everything in the grocery story 15 minutes before the party started. You get the theme now? Easy on the parents. For Bowie’s 3rd birthday, we celebrated at Hat Creek Burger Company. We pre-ordered tacos and pancakes for our guests and brought in our own cake. They have a fantastic playground, shaded porch, and bathrooms because you know…potty training age. We also started the party at 9am. 9AM! It was the only slot available on that particular day and although I was worried about the early start time, it worked out perfectly because let’s be honest, we’re up early and it’s an opportunity to tire out those babes before naptime. It was everything our sweet and active little buddy could have dreamed of and I’m so thankful Emily Francis Photography was there to capture it all!
