I'm a little late with the post, but better late than never, right? Today I'm sharing with you a couple photos from Hayden's 3rd birthday. We had a Labor day celebration with family and friends complete with a petting zoo and an ice cream sundae station courtesy of Smucker's.
Hayden is a lover and was so thrilled to see each and every one of his guests. He went around socializing with everyone and enjoying the party fair until he noticed the petting zoo being set up in the backyard, then he was glued to the back door in total amazement. There were rabbits, goats, a lamb, a potbelly pig, a rooster and a hen. He LOVED that little chicken and while he went back and forth petting and feeding all the animals, that chicken became his best bud and he was so protective over her. It was really sweet to see.
Afterwards, we returned inside to escape the heat with Smucker's ice cream sundaes! Who doesn't love a good sundae? We had Blue Bell vanilla ice cream with a multitude of toppings- hot fudge, salted caramel, chocolate coconut, dark chocolate as well as magic shell toppings in chocolate pretzel and rainbow sherbet flavors. There was also an array of sprinkles, nuts, cherries and whipped cream to round everything out. Everyone had fun building their sundaes- some people adding so many topping and sprinkles that you couldn't see the ice cream and some people went with one topping with no other accoutrement. I went with salted caramel, hot fudge, pecans, shredded coconut, cream and a cherry. Hayden on the other hand just wanted all the sprinkles, hold the ice cream :-). We also had Red Velvet Cupcakes (recipe from Blaise The Baker).
After tasting all the toppings, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the chocolate coconut topping, It was, by far, my favorite of all. Its good on ice cream and equally delicious eaten right out of the jar with a spoon! But don't take my word for it.
