Blade’s 2nd Birthday Party! {The COOP}

  Our sweet Blade turned TWO on the 25th! We celebrated his big number 2, Elmo style, this past weekend at The COOP in Frisco – SO fun!

If you’re local and have small kids, we highly recommend visiting The COOP. This was our first time to host our party outside our home. I’m typically not a fan of places you rent as they’re impersonal and rushed but this turned out well. Luckily I booked plenty of time in advance and everything was set to go. With Brody’s unexpected shunt complications and surgery, it was nice to have it all planned already.  Our private party included a bounce house, a toddler book area and play area with toys, a dance pad/gaming area, ride on toys and the coolest ball pit and slide area ever! We had a total of about 40 people and everyone had a blast!


These little ride-ons were Blade’s favorite. He and his wee toddler friends rode them the entire time…


Sweet Wesley!

HMB_6230   HMB_6246 This place was seriously fun for all ages. The big boys started pegging random bystanders with balls. The little boys caught on quickly. Here’s Korbin taking a shot at someone…

While he had the time of his life during the free play, it wasn’t until we sang “Happy Birthday” that Blade realized this whole thing was about HIM! His smile grew as everyone looked at him while singing and then once the song was over he lit up and yelled “Yaaayyyyy!” while clapping his hands. PRICELESS!

Happy Birthday to our precious precious, sweet number 5. You’ve brought more joy and spunk to our family than we could have ever imagined. We love you, Baby Blade!


We owe a HUGE Thank You to Amy Horton with Amy Horton Photography for coming to capture these memories on film while Bret and I enjoyed our party. Thank you again Amy, we love the pictures!!!


  1. Awesome pictures!! That was a fun party! Happy Birthday sweet Blade! Love you, Aunt Beth (AKA Sis)

  2. What a fabulous party place for kids! Loved watching little kiddos having fun! You know my daughter’s fifth birthday is about to come and we have hired a party planner for all arrangements. It’s quite exciting for me to celebrate my first child’s first birthday on this grand scale!
